Mac OS X 10.7, otherwise known as OS X Lion is set to come out in just a few weeks and Apple has just released an update to OS X 10.6.8 to prepare you for the major upgrade that is coming. OS X 10.6.8 was first hinted at in the release notes of Final Cut X Pro earlier this week, and is now available to download.
The OS X 10.6.8 update is rather large, clocking in at 1GB, and delivers the following fixes and improvements;
- Enhance the Mac App Store to get your Mac ready to upgrade to Mac OS X Lion
- Resolve an issue that may cause Preview to unexpectedly quit
- Improve support for IPv6
- Improve VPN reliability
- Identify and remove known variants of Mac Defender
If you are running OS X Snow Leopard it is recommended that you download this upgrade even if you don’t plan to purchase OS X Lion when it arrives in July for the low price of $29.99. If you are planning on installing OS X Lion, we recommend that you download this update today and install it so that you don’t end up waiting on overloaded servers when OS X Lion is released.
