Latest Snow Leopard Build Shows Increased Development Pace [Seed Notes]
Just three weeks after the previous build of the next major upgrade to Mac OS X, Snow Leopard build 10A355 has reached developers in the last few hours.
The build marks an increase in the pace of delivery by Apple as the company attempts to have Snow Leopard complete for the Summer months.
Build 10A335 contains no revelations but continues to ask developers to work on and test 64-bit kernel extensions, with the build came a small amount of fixes.
- Migrating users over a network connection may result in a hang. Connect the machines via Firewire to workaround this.
- It may take several minutes to get to the Mac OS X Installer when using a DVD.
- Some settings such as Mobile Me login info and Keyboard settings are not migrated correctly.
- Some Rosetta applications crash on launch.
- ‘Repair Permissions’ in Disk Utility reports spurious errors.
- configd crashes can cause DNS lookups to fail.
- Custom install sizes are sometimes inaccurate, which may result in the Install Assistant failing due to disk space issues.
- Quicktime Player X may crash when playing DRM protected content in 64-bit.
- PowerPC apps are crashing for some users after installing Rosetta. Running ‘sudo update_dyld_shared_cache’ in Terminal and then rebooting will typically work around this. Note that you will be prompted for your admin password.
