Snow Leopard Updated…. That Didn’t Take Long

Apple released Mac OS X 10.6.1 tonight to the universe. It fixes the following problems:

  • compatibility with some Sierra Wireless 3G modems
  • an issue that might cause DVD playback to stop unexpectedly
  • some printer compatibility drivers not appearing properly in the add printer browser
  • an issue that might make it difficult to remove an item from the Dock
  • instances where automatic account setup in Mail might not work
  • an issue where pressing cmd-opt-t in Mail brings up the special characters menu instead of moving a message
  • Motion 4 becoming unresponsive

There’s a bunch of security fixes tossed in as well as an updated Flash player as well to solve that rather sneaky downgrade of Flash that 10.6 did to users. Snow Leopard users can grab this update via Software Update. I’d download, try it, and let you know what I think, but I’m still waiting for my copy of Snow Leopard. Oh well. I’ll just have to download the Security Update for Leopard instead as it contains many of the security updates that appeared in 10.6.1. Oh you Tiger users on Intel and Power PC can feel the love too as there’s a Security Update for you as well.
