Less than a month after seeding the first beta, Apple has issued the second beta release of Mac OS X 10.6.6 this Thursday.
Per AppleInsider, build 10J537 of Mac OS X Snow Leopard software update 10.6.6 is a 1000MB download and “contains developer support for fetching and renewing App Store receipts,” which could mean that the 10.6.6 update is scheduled for release in time for the opening of the Mac App Store, which is set to arrive within the next few months.
Apple released the most recent OS X update, Mac OS X 10.6.5, on Nov. 10. The update was originally expected to include full Mac support for AirPrint, the new wireless printing feature in iOS 4.2, but documentation accompanying the release lacked any mention of the feature
Just prior to the release of Mac OS X 10.6.5, reports emerged suggesting that Apple had delayed Mac OS X support for AirPrint because of last minute stability and compatibility problems.
If you’ve gotten your mitts on the latest build and have any thoughts on it, please let us know.
