Details on first update of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard

Just a few days after the release of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, Apple has begun testing the first update for the operating system. AppleInsider reports that the update was issued for beta testing to a small group of select testers that you can be a part of only if you get invited by Apple.

Apple Developer Connection members are expected to get the software builds within a week or two. After the initial list of incompatible software, according to a tip allegedly given by Apple to The Boy Genius Report, current fixes include:

  • Compatibility with some Sierra Wireless 3G modems
  • An issue that might cause DVD playback to stop unexpectedly
  • Some printer compatibility drivers not appearing properly in the add printer browser
  • An issue that might make it difficult to remove an item from the Dock
  • Instances where automatic account setup in Mail might not work
  • an issue where pressing cmd-opt-t in Mail brings up the special characters menu instead of moving a message
  • Motion 4 becoming unresponsive.
