Apple Releases OS X 10.6.8 Supplemental Update for Snow Leopard Users

Apple has pushed out an update for you retro folks that are still on OS X Snow Leopard. A new supplemental update for 10.6.8 addresses some issues when migrating your Mac from Snow Leopard to Lion, as well as a few more bug fixes.

Apple’s latest Snow Leopard patch should fix problems relating to:

  • 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

To grab this latest update (which is recommended, especially if you’re planning on updating to OS X Lion), run Software Update on your Mac. You can also find the download on Apple’s support site.

    The “constantly pausing printer” has been driving everyone nuts where I work for over a year. ¬†About time they fixed it. ¬†

    Has it actually fixed the ‘paused printing’ problem?
    The reason I ask is because I am currently re-installing 10.6.3 to get arround the problem of the paused printer and am a little jaded with the whole thing now.
