Apple Reportedly Preparing to Seed Builds of Mac OS X 10.6.3 to Developers

AppleInsider reports that Apple is preparing to begin seeding builds of Mac OS X 10.6.3, the next maintenance release for Snow Leopard, to developers as soon as this week.

People familiar with the matter say the forthcoming builds are likely to be released to some developers in the next 48 hours, and carry the expected prefix of 10Dxx. It is not yet known what issues Apple hopes to address with the latest update.

While Mac OS X 10.6.2, the most recent update, saw an approximately one-month interval between its first developer seed and its public release, development times can vary significantly as Apple works to address both known issues and new ones that crop up throughout the process.
