Apple releases Mac OS X v10.6.7


Only two weeks after Apple seeded the latest Mac OS X build (10J868) to developers, the latest software update is now available to the public. The final build of Mac OS X v10.6.7 is now available for download to everyone.

Mac OS X 10.6.7 will focus on some key areas of their operating system features, including better AirPlay support, Bonjour service, improved Windows file sharing (SMB), and improved graphics drivers. No word on if v10.6.7 patches the Mac App Store vulnerability that allows anyone to download and play games on their computer. The simple exploit became widespread just hours after Apple released v10.6.6.

The Mac App Store follows the highly successful App Store on the iOS platform, which allows mobile users to download and use apps and games on the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The Mac App Store launched for the Mac OS X platform in January, which now gives desktop users the ability to play games and quickly find applications.

Mac OS X v10.6.7 comes with additional minor updates including Safari 5.0.4, DVD playback update for 64-bit kernels, font updates and much more.
