Fear not, Snow Leopard users; Apple has not forgotten about you. Apple Software Installer Update 1.0, released by Apple late Monday, is a bug fix for for Apple’s previous operating system that “addresses an issue that may prevent certain Apple software from installing.” 

Recommended for all users running Mac OS X 10.6.8, the update weighs in at 1.34 MB and can be downloaded via Software Update or Apple’s Support Page

With OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion due this summer, and development on 10.7 Lion winding down, it is unlikely that Snow Leopard users will receive future updates beyond security and bug fixes, such as today’s update. Those 10.6 users seeking additional functionality, such as iCloud support, will likely be forced to upgrade in the near future.
