Apple releases OSX 10.6.2 Update

Everyone running Snow Leopard should start seeing their System Update notifications popping up. Yes, it’s time for an update.

From the Apple Support Website:

The 10.6.2 Update is recommended for all users running Mac OS X Snow Leopard and includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac, including fixes for:

  • an issue that might cause your system to logout unexpectedly
  • a graphics distortion in Safari Top Sites
  • Spotlight search results not showing Exchange contacts
  • a problem that prevented authenticating as an administrative user
  • issues when using NTFS and WebDAV file servers
  • the reliability of menu extras
  • an issue with the 4-finger swipe gesture
  • an issue that causes Mail to quit unexpectedly when setting up an Exchange server
  • Address Book becoming unresponsive when editing
  • a problem adding images to contacts in Address Book
  • an issue that prevented opening files downloaded from the Internet
  • Safari plug-in reliability
  • general reliability improvements for iWork, iLife, Aperture, Final Cut Studio, MobileMe, and iDisk
  • an issue that caused data to be deleted when using a guest account

Has everyone made the switch to Snow Leopard? I’m still holding out. If you are too, we’d love to know why.

    On Snow Leopard 10.6.2 with a brand new imac for last 10 days. SERIOUS PROBLEM with both SPOTLIGHT and old-fashioned FIND functions. They are not finding folders and documents which are clearly there (dragged in to lateral presentation). I have tried suggestions from other users online – RESTARTING, ACTIVATING PRIVACY OPTION ON SPOTLIGHT AND REINDEXING – nothing is working. Having used the FIND functions to full value for years- including content – spotlight seems like an over presented and under-performing tool. IN ANY CASE THIS IS THE KIND OF SITUATION THAT MAKES WE WANT TO BRING BACK MY MAC I’m completely dependent on being able to find the dozens of documents I generate everyday. Any answers / advice that does not include reprogramming – would be very welcome. Especially from APPLE…
