Apple issues OS X 10.6.7 update for early 2011 MacBook Pro models

Apple has released OS X 10.6.7 for Mac computers, and it includes some stability, performance, and security enhancements. It also fixes display issues that have been plaguing early 2011 MacBook Pro models. The update should make the Back to My Mac software more reliable, resolves some issues that occurred while transferring files to SMB servers, addresses bugs related to FaceTime performance and the Mac App Store, and improves graphics stability and display compatibility when using your MacBook Pro with an external monitor. The entire update should be roughly 390MB in size and can be downloaded through Snow Leopard’s software update utility.

Apple’s second OS X 10.6.7 beta now available for developers

Just four days after Apple seeded its last Snow Leopard beta to developers, the company on Monday made a new version of OS X 10.6.7 available. Both the standard version and the server version of OS X 10.6.7 build 10J846 became available last night, and no official change log was provided. As with Apple’s last Snow Leopard beta, it asked developers to focus on AirPort, Bonjour, SMB and Graphics Drivers when testing this new software. It added a request that developers should test the Mac App Store as well. Apple is expected to release OS X 10.6.7 soon, though Mac users are anxiously awaiting OS X 10.7 Lion, which is due for release this summer.

Apple seeds OS X 10.6.7 beta to developers

Apple on Thursday seeded the first beta build of its OS X 10.6.7 software to developers. OS X 10.6.7 build 10J842 comes exactly two weeks after Apple’s public release of 10.6.6, which brought the Mac App Store to Apple’s computer lineup. Apple later announced that the Mac App Store had served over 1 million downloads in its first day of operation. For the time being, it is unknown what new features are present in 10.6.7 and Apple did not list any known issues in its documentation, saying only that developers should test AirPort, Bonjour, SMB and Graphics Drivers.
