Apple Releases Supplemental Update For Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Following Apple’s recent release of the Snow Leopard 10.6.8 update, which helped prepare Snow Leopard users to update to OS X Lion, Apple has now released a revised version of the 10.6.8 update, which will resolve additional issues with making the upgrade from Snow Leopard to OS X Lion.

The update will come in the form of an automatic download for current Snow Leopard users, with a patch available to those who are already on 10.6.8. From the release notes:

The Mac OS X 10.6.8 Supplemental Update is recommended for all users running Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and resolves issues with:
– 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 available now via Software Update, and direct links can be found below:

Of course, the entire idea of releasing an update for an update does seem a little Microsoft-ish to me. Who’s ready for Apple to start having a weekly “patch Tuesday”? Anyone? Anyone? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
