address compatibility issues with OpenGL-based applications
address an issue that causes background message colors to display incorrectly in Mail
resolve an issue that prevented files with the # or & characters in their names from opening in Rosetta applications
resolve an issue that prevented files from copying to Windows file servers
improve performance of Logic Pro 9 and Main Stage 2 when running in 64-bit mode
improve sleep and wake reliability when using Bonjour wake on demand
address a color issue in iMovie with HD content
improve printing reliability
resolve issues with recurring events in iCal when connected to an Exchange server
improve the reliability of 3rd party USB input devices
fix glowing, stuck, or dark pixels when viewing video from the iMac (Late 2009) built-in iSight camera

On my imac (currently 10.6.2) the 10.6.3 update is 437.8MB

I actually downloaded the combo update from Apple's website. Stupid question but.. things that aren't needed (redundant stuff) won't be installed right ? I mean, does OS X detect what is needed only ? I did the combo and upon updating it said that it would take up over a gig of space.

If you think about it from an historical perspective...437.8meg is an absolutely insane update size!

Even compare that OS update size to the size of some application's sold today...and it's still insanely big for an update.

How the heck big would the update be if 10.6 was still PPC compatible & still had PPC code in it like 10.5 was...then it would be REALLY BIG!:(

Oops... Sorry MYmacROX.
I din't see this thread and posted another thread about the 10.6.3 update.
Hopefully the Mods will see the one I posted and delete it!

Engadget had 757.3 MB when upgrading from 10.6.2 for some reason which is even worse. My guess is that SU was pulling down the combo for their system which doesn't make sense to me.

I think you meant to put in this link Mac OS X v10.6.3 Update (Combo)

Chef_eam 03-29-2010 07:23 PM

I did the update through SU, and the download was 757.3MB.

chscag 03-29-2010 07:24 PM

Hmmm... my updater likewise pulled down the 757 MB update. My connection is real fast so I thought nothing of it. Anyway, it installed fine and everything seems OK thus far.

Regards.
