Apple today released Mac OS X 10.6.7, a maintenance update for Snow Leopard that addresses issues with Back to My Mac, SMB transfers and the Mac App Store.

Although 10.6.7 is available via Software Update (~500MB), I recommend updating from the larger (1.12GB) Combo updater and performing a full back-up first.

What's included?

This update is recommended for all versions of Mac OS X v10.6 through 10.6.6 Snow Leopard, and includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac; including fixes that:

  • Improve the reliability of Back to My Mac.
  • Resolve an issue when transferring files to certain SMB servers.
  • Address various minor Mac App Store issues.

Additional improvements

  • Includes all the improvements in the previous Mac OS X v10.6.1, 10.6.2, 10.6.3, 10.6.4, 10.6.5, and 10.6.6 updates.
  • Includes Safari 5.0.4.
  • Includes RAW image compatibility for additional digital cameras.
  • For information about the security content of this update, please visit article HT1222.
  • Resolves a window resizing issue with X-Plane 9 on Macs with ATI graphics
  • Addresses an issue with MacBook Air (Mid 2010) computers that could cause a kernel panic.
  • Address issues in the AirPort driver for certain devices.
  • Improves brightness on external displays and projectors.
  • Addresses an issue where DVD Player may display black video on some Macs using the 64-bit kernel.
  • Addresses an issue with some NEC displays in which the screen may appear black when connected to a Mac Pro (Mid 2010).
  • Resolves an issue in which some Multiple Master (MM) fonts were missing from Mac Pro (Mid 2010), MacBook Pro (15-inch & 17-inch Mid 2010), and iMac (Mid 2010) computers.
  • Addresses various issues with MacBook Air (Mid 2010) computer performance.
  • Resolves an issue in which clicking the Updates tab in the Mac App Store could cause the Mac App Store to become unresponsive.
  • Fixes a problem opening an afp:// URL that points to a file, and changes the AFP mount path to conform to previous Mac OS X releases. For details, see article HT4538.
  • Includes the ability to repair certain issues that may prevent hardware RAID volumes from mounting. For more information, see article TS3631.
  • Fixes a rare issue in Mac OS X v10.6.5 that could cause user accounts to disappear from the Login window and System Preferences after putting the system to sleep.
  • Improves the reliability of dragging files or folders to the Trash when using an NFS home directory.

Update: MacRumors reports that Apple is offering a special build of 10.6.7 for the new Early 2011 MacBook Pro, addressing FaceTime performance issues, graphics stability, and external display compatibility.
