Apple Pushes New Mac OS X 10.6.5 Build to Developers

Apple has pushed yet another build of Mac OS X 10.6.5 out to developers. The latest build, dubbed 10H562, landed in developer’s laps only a week after the last seed release hinting that the official update may be just around the corner.

Apple is asking developers to focus on testing the build’s 3D Graphics, printing, QuickTime, Time Machine and USB device support. The company is also telling developers this build has no known issues, which is another tip off that the final update release could be soon.

Mac OS X 10.6.5 is on the way

iOS 4.2 for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad will include wireless printing support when it ships in November. Apple has indicated that the Mac OS X 10.6.5 update will be required for sharing printers with iOS devices, so it isn’t any surprise that the company is asking developers to put the update’s printing support through its paces.

Apple hasn’t said exactly when Mac OS X 10.6.5 will be released to the public, but it will be a free update for Snow Leopard users.
