A software update was released by Apple for the current Mac OS X line up yesterday. The update, which is meant for all users running the Snow Leopard (10.6.*) platform only, comes with a handful of patches, bug-fixes and solution for a few compatibility issues.

Users are suggested to back up their system, with Time Machine, as a usual word of caution. The update can be applied with the Software Updater over the Internet or the whole package can be downloaded and applied locally.
