Apple Mac OS X v10.6.5 Update


Apple released a Mac OS X v10.6.5 update recently for all Snow Leopard users. Contains mostly bug fixes, including performance, reliability and stability issues, as well as patching of security flaws. As usual, I prefer to install the Combo update as opposed to just patch over an existing running version via Software Update. Having run it for over 24 hours, no notable difference except some speed enhancements overall. No WiFi issues as reported by some. Pretty solid update, now can you please release Lion v10.7, pretty please, Apple?
