The rumors have turned out to be true and a couple of hours ago Apple started offering the Mac OS X 10.6.5 update for download. The 10.6.5 Update is recommended for all users running Mac OS X Snow Leopard and includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac.

Apple highlights the following improvements of 10.6.5:

  • improve reliability with Microsoft Exchange servers
  • address performance of some image-processing operations in iPhoto and Aperture
  • address stability and performance of graphics applications and games
  • resolve a delay between print jobs
  • address a printing issue for some HP printers connected to an AirPort Extreme
  • resolve an issue when dragging contacts from Address Book to iCal
  • address an issue where dragging an item from a stack causes the Dock to not automatically hide
  • resolve an issue with Wikipedia information not displaying correctly in Dictionary
  • improve performance of MainStage on certain Mac systems
  • resolve spacing issues with OpenType fonts
  • improve reliability with some Bluetooth braille displays
  • resolve a VoiceOver issue when browsing some web sites with Safari 5

The release notes of the Apple Mac OS X 10.6.5 do not mention anything related to the iOS 4.2 update coming most likely this Friday. A rumor that AirPrint will not work with any printer connected via a Mac has raised concern.

You can install the OS X 10.6.5 download when you hit Software Update in the Mac menu.
