What exactly does this fix?

Because there are no details of it on Apple's website.

Just installed on my 2006 Macbook pro. Have no clue what it's for. Probably security fix.

Hmmm. Interesting.

I don't have it on my MBP. :confused:

(BTW, It took 16 minutes to check for updates ... I hate TigrisNet.)

I just checked Software Update about two minutes ago, and no updates were available. I am using a white MacBook from mid-2009, which was the last revision with the old MacBook form factor. I clean installed Snow Leopard when it came out, and I've always done Combo Updates.

Exactly the same setup here, and same result. I'm hoping it fixes the fault described in these threads:

It's affecting me very badly, making my system unusable. Luckily (?) I got a Windows Boot Camp so I can be productive.

I sure hope a fix shows up soon.

I noticed that on the Apple website the 10.6.3 update is now called Mac OS X v10.6.3 v1.1 Update (Combo) and was released today, even though 10.6.3 came out two weeks ago. They must have forgot to put something in there, it's still not clear from the documentation how v1.1 differs.

10.6.3 Supplemental Update

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4014

Under the Additional Information section, bottom of page is your answer:
The Mac OS X v10.6.3 combo update also includes improvements provided in the Mac OS X v10.6.1 Update and Mac OS X v10.6.2 Update.

In order to receive all the improvements listed above, some systems require the Mac OS X v10.6.3 Supplemental Update, which is available via Software Update.

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 that helps.... :)

That's what it says in System Update; it still does not say what changes were made in standard update (10.6.0—>10.6.1—>10.6.2—>10.6.3) that wasn't done in the combo update (10.6.0—>10.6.3).

I'll probably install this update anyways, but I was hoping someone had an idea what it did for my computer.

Installation of 10.6.3 Supplimental 1.1

I noticed this update was available and downloaded and installed it on my 10.6.3 which had been updated from 10.6.2. I did not check with Software Update prior to see whether my iMac did indeed require this update. It did however install with no problems and there were no messages telling me I did not need to apply this update. Maybe I didn't have to do it but it's done now. Apple could have been a bit clearer instead of the standard recommendation to install on all Snow Leopard systems. I prefer to install Combo updates in Safe Mode rather that through Software Update.

So if the supplemental update doesn't show up in Software Update it means I don't need it??

Didn't get it in software update on my mid-2009 MBP. I'll check the MB, iMac, and Mac mini when I get home.

i just had a software update for 10.6.3 but it was not called a supplemental update. I dont recollect the name of the update but in the description it said something about scrolling and some other flaws in the 10.6.3 update.

I got the update today on a 2009 macbook pro. The thing I thought was weird is that it didn't ask for a admin password and required a reboot. :confused:

Mine required an admin password and a reboot-- and destroyed my permissions too. After rebooting, I ran fix permissions and 80+ permissions differed.

The funny thing is that every single one was related to airport preferences and what not, and since I don't use airport at school (its off), it probably means it changed something with the airport...

Yep

Got the update in Software Update.

June 2009 13" MacBook Pro. My hard drive just died, so after getting the new one and reinstalling, I went from 10.6.0 to 10.6.3 directly. The update showed up this afternoon.
