Apple yesterday released Thunderbolt Software Update 1.1 for Snow Leopard, bringing a fix for intermittent black screen issues.

This update addresses an issue that causes some users of the Apple Thunderbolt Display to experience intermittent black screens. It also includes stability improvements for Thunderbolt devices.

The update weighs in at 53.23 MB and requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 and the original Thunderbolt Software Update released two months ago.

Interesting that Apple is releasing these back-updates for 10.6. I would guess that Apple hasn't seen the kind of upgrade numbers they expected for Lion. It'll happen over time; I'm still using Snow Leopard myself on my main machine.
Actually, I think it is really good to see this. To me it means Apple recognises that many people are staying with Snow Leopard for a variety of reasons and they are fully supporting that OS still.

Apple can try and force feed me Lion all they want, but I am NOT switching to it until they fix the bloated garbage that Lion is.

isn't there atleast a few who say this for every major version of osx? :rolleyes:

Not to mention, they need to bring back Expose (or ungroup windows). Productivity in Lion is a nightmare. It wouldnt kill apple to stop with the ipadification of OS X.

Anyway, good thing theyre still *somewhat* updating Snow Leopard. I expect a 10.6.9 release sometime soon.

Actually, it's just what Apple always do. Version n-1 of OS X is always well supported until version n+1 is released, at which point it goes into maintenance mode (security and critical bugfixes only).
