Apple releases Mac OS X 10.6.8 Supplemental Update for Snow Leopard

Instead of the usual point release, Apple on Monday released a “Supplemental Update” for Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.8.

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

For users who are not running Snow Leopard 10.6.8, Apple has an update combo that will bring your Mac up to date to 10.6.8. The supplemental update is available via the usual software update.
