“In order to get support for the upcoming Mac App Store, Apple is already working on the OS X 10.6.6 release, which indicates the 10.6.5 release will likely soon be available.

“OS X 10.6.5 will be the fifth version of a major release of OS X, and unlike the first few updates, many of the major bugs will likely have already been addressed so updating should be smooth for most people,” Kessler reports. “Despite this, any time an OS update is released, there will be changes to drivers and other core system components that may cause problems for a few users, so unless you absolutely need the update you might consider waiting to allow others to install and test it.”
