It seems as if Apple has had too much of coffee for today, considering the number of announcements that have come from the Cupertinos. Let me tell you, we are not sharing with you another iPad item for a change. Here is goes, Snow Leopard has been updated to version 10.6.3. The update is by no means a minor one and it brings a lot of bug fixes and improvements, in other words something for everyone.

The update has a huge size of 757.37 MB, how's that for a major update. The upgrade which mainly addresses the security, compatibility, and stability aspects of the OS which was launched about 7 months back brings the more notable fixes:

  • Improve the reliability and compatibility of QuickTime X
  • Address compatibility issues with OpenGL-based applications
  • Address an issue that causes background message colors to display incorrectly in Mail
  • Resolve an issue that prevented files with the # or & characters in their names from opening in Rosetta applications
  • Resolve an issue that prevented files from copying to Windows file servers
  • Improve performance of Logic Pro 9 and Main Stage 2 when running in 64-bit mode
  • Improve sleep and wake reliability when using Bonjour wake on demand
  • Address a color issue in iMovie with HD content
  • Improve printing reliability
  • Resolve issues with recurring events in iCal when connected to an Exchange server
  • Improve the reliability of 3rd party USB input devices
  • Fix glowing, stuck, or dark pixels when viewing video from the iMac (Late 2009) built-in iSight camera

Engadget notes a pretty significant change that isn't mentioned in the exclusive list of changes which is integrated support for Intel's mobile Core i5 / Core i7 chips.
