Apple's Seeding of Mac OS X 10.6.5 Betas Accelerates

Apple has accelerated Mac OS X 10.6.5 developer builds with build 10H563 being delivered only 4 days since the last one (10H562). The build number was incremented a single digit and incorporates no known issues.

The previous build included a new Combo updater suggesting they are preparing for release. Apple has previously been seeding Mac OS X 10.6.5 builds as quickly as one-week intervals. This latest release 4 day turnaround suggests development is winding down.

10.6.5 could represent the last point upgrade to Snow Leopard as Apple has already announced Mac OS X 10.7 Lion for delivery in Summer 2011.

I don't see 10.6.5 being last Snow Leopard update, Apple released 10.5.8 in August last year along with Snow Leopard...therefore I think we will see another update at least.

But the question remains... how many will stick with Snow Leopard when Lion is released?


If the only things new are those demoed in the last event, I don't see a reason to get Lion. It seems intended to bring the computers closer to the iGadgets, rather than improving performance.

So I will probably stay with Snow Leopard.
