Apple seeds new Mac OS X 10.6.5 version to developers

Apple has released a new version of its operating system, Mac OS X 10.6.5 (Build 10H548), to developers for testing.

Apple has released a new version of its operating system, Mac OS X 10.6.5 (Build 10H548), to developers for testing. This version focuses on AirPrint compatibility, 3D graphics, QuickTime, and USB devices.

AirPrint allows iOS devices like iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches to interface with printers connected to Macs and shared on a Wi-Fi network. Developers are asked to focus on connectivity and compatibility of the AirPrint features as well as improvements to Time Machine software.

AppleInsider reports that other improvements expected to be included in Mac OS X 10.6.5 are:

  • Several printing issues including delays between print jobs and printing issues with HP printers connected to AirPort Extremes.

  • Resolves several small issues within core applications like iCal, Dictionary, Address Book, and the Dock.

  • Adds SSL support for file uploading to MobileMe iDisk.

  • Improves performance and reliability of graphic-heavy applications and games.

Previous builds of Mac OS X 10.6.5 have been free of known issues suggesting that Apple could be close to releasing a version for public consumption. Earlier this week Apple announced a special Mac event, hinting that details of Mac OS X 10.7 may be released.
