Apple earlier this week released revised "1.1" versions of Mac OS X 10.6.3 for both standard and server editions. The company has not specified what changes were made in the update, although such changes are typically minor and focus on addressing issues with the update that had gone undetected before launch rather than adding new features.

- Mac OS X v10.6.3 v1.1 Update (Combo) weighs in at 785.29 MB and as a combo update can be applied to any previous version of Mac OS X Snow Leopard.

- Mac OS X Server 10.6.3 v1.1 Update (Combo) weighs in at 897.32 MB and is similarly compatible with all earlier versions of Mac OS X Server Snow Leopard.

Mac OS X 10.6.3 was initially released in late March and addressed a number of issues with Snow Leopard.

Is this supposed to be available through Software Updates or does it have to be manually downloaded and applied?

Thank God! I was having all types of issues with 10.6.3 on my 2008 iMac with ATI Graphics. It would freeze randomly whenever I used the GPU. I hope this fixes that!

This is only for users who updated directly from 10.6.0 to 10.6.3 using ComboUpdate. If it is not showing in Software Update, then it's not needed.

Would love to know exactly what was changed.

I've been having Dock/windowserver issues since installing 10.6.3 on my Mac Pro with a 7300 GT.

I haven't had any problems with CS3 on here or with 10.6.3. But if this is recommended for all users why is it not available in software update??? :confused:

Software update is showing that mine is only 600+ KB. Not anywhere close to 800+ MB listed in the article.

Software update is giving you just the files your machine needs.

The large update is the full combo updater.

BTW...what machine are you running to get the software update?

From apple.com:

Tip: If you don't see the Mac OS X v10.6.3 Supplemental Update in Software Update, you don't need to install it.

Note: The Supplemental Update is for any system that was updated from Mac OS X v10.6 using the Mac OS X Update Combined v10.6.3, build 10D573. It is not needed on systems that were updated from Mac OS X v10.6.1 or 10.6.2, and it is not needed on systems that were updated from Mac OS X v10.6 using the Mac OS X Update Combined v10.6.3, v1.1.

Hope it fixes it.... fingers crossed.

What about folks that were at 10.6.2 but used the combo updater to update to 10.6.3 ? It would apply the same updates to the system as someone who updated from 10.6.0 still; wouldn't it ?

EDIT: Never mind, answered:

10.6.3 and Older Macs

It seems that some older Macs do not need the update. I suspect that this updates addresses issues with newer hardware rather than actual OS fixes for everyone.

As for CS3 issues, I am only having one occasional issue with Illustrator not starting the first time after a reboot. My CS3 photoshop works great without any issues at all.

Check your console log for errors. If you can remove or update any offending applications CS3 might become more stable. I have seen weird side effects after 10.6.3, but so far they seem to be related errors with underlying processes not related to CS3. I managed to clean up my issues and have no problems with CS3.

I'm on a Mac Pro 1,1 with the 7300 GT. Ever since installing the 10.6.3 combo update (I went from 10.6.2 -> 10.6.3) I was noticing weird issues with the Dock and window server (https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/896327/).

I reinstalled 10.6.3 (the original combo update) with no changes.

I just installed 10.6.3 v1.1 combo update. I was NOT offered it via Software Update, so I'm guessing that it really won't make a difference.

My build did go from 10D573 to 10D578.
