Apple releases revised Snow Leopard 10.6.8 update

Just because OS X Lion is out, it doesn’t mean Snow Leopard has been kicked to the curb. While the OS should continue to receive security updates for the lifespan of Lion, today Apple released a revised 10.6.8 update. The update includes these fixes:

  • Transferring personal data, settings, and compatible applications from a Mac running Mac OS X Snow Leopard to a new Mac running Mac OS X Lion
  • Certain network printers that pause print jobs immediately and fail to complete
  • System audio that stops working when using HDMI or optical audio out

The update is recommended for all 10.6 users. If your Mac is already running 10.6.8, just the smallest update will be required.
