Mac OS X 10.6.7 now available, fixes MacBook Pro issues and many bugs
Apple has just released Mac OS X 10.6.7. As its version number implies, this is a minor software update, even more so than 10.6.6 which at least ushered the Mac App Store into the world. However, 10.6.7 does apparently fix many issues that people who have bought the newest MacBook Pros have encountered, and as such it's a recommended update for all early 2011 MacBook Pro models.
The update also improves the reliability of the Back to My Mac service which allows MobileMe users to access their computers remotely, and brings many bug fixes to the aforementioned Mac App Store. FaceTime performance has also been improved, as has graphics stability and compatibility with external displays. An issue that occurred when transferring files to certain SMB servers has been fixed too. Many security-related problems have been dealt with as well, and if you're interested in a full list, visit this dedicated page. Also, to get the full rundown on everything that's included in the 10.6.7 update, head over to Apple's Support website.
You can install Mac OS X 10.6.7 by running Software Update on your Mac, or by downloading the update directly from Apple's Downloads website. If you choose the latter, you're facing a 475 MB download, while using the former may result in a smaller download (as seen in the image above).
