Apple has released Mac OS X 10.6.3 in both client and servers versions that will bring overall improvements to printing, wireless networking, OpenGL-based apps, and some third-party external USB devices. As mentioned in this report on Ars Technica, other specific fixes include improved secure Wi-Fi connections, working with remote Windows/SMB file servers, Exchange support, and mobile account stability.

The 10.6.3 Snow Leopard update includes bug fixes, improvements, and security fixes.

"Mac OS X Server 10.6.3 has all of the same stuff, as well as improvement to its server-specific features. Podcast Producer got a number of improvements, including working with dual-source video. There are also improvements to working with installation images and sources, including NetRestore, syncing Portable Home Directories, using Server Admin over IPv6, working with Open Directory and Active Directory, and filtering of incoming mail messages. Apple also added a specific security improvement to help prevent brute force password attacks.

"The updates include a total of 69 patches for security related issues, though many apply only to server-related components such as Wiki Server, Apache, and iChat Server. A number of patches are also included for the many underlying UNIX or open source components included in Mac OS X, such as PHP, MySQL, perl, curl, CUPS, SMB, and Ruby."
