I'm just wondering: it's been nearly two years now since this update and there's still a lot of people using 10.6, Apple continues to provide updates (actually a whole lot of them, security updates, java, etc.).
Well I frankly don't believe Apple will do it, but it would be nice to have a final 10.6.9, for summing all those little updates, for archive's sake.
I keep those for every system since 10.4 just in case my old machines need reinstalling, and I would have appreciated the same for 10.4 and 10.5, even if it's rarely needed, but that way I could throw away useless old updates.

I installed the Supplemental update without installing the Combo Update first because I was getting some kind of error. Now, after restarting my sound doesn't work. Any help?

Installing the 10.6.8 V1.1 Combo updater will overwrite Safari 5.1 if you have already installed it, and replace it with 5.0.5 or .6. Just reinstall Safari 5.1, or skip the Combo thing altogether and do the Supplemental update. FYI.

This didn't happen for me. About still shows Safari 5.1.

I have repeatedly downloaded the 10.6.8 v1.1 combo update and I can never open the resulting .dmg file. Anyone else having this problem? Anyone have an alternate download link? I tried apple uk, but could not find a suitable link.

I just tried with Firefox. Same problem. It looks like there is a problem with the image.

what is the difference in this and the "supplemental"

No difference. The supplemental is for people that had already upgraded to 10.6.8 and the new version of 10.6.8 is for people that hadn't updated yet.

I installed this update through Software Update. The size of the file was 1/10th of what is being downloaded here. It was quick without any problems. Some people have stated that the About This Mac window notates the supplemental update. My window still says OS 10.6.8

I think what you got was the "Mac OS X 10.6.8 Supplemental Update," which says it resolves the exact same issues as this update. It's in Software Update, but there's also a direct download that's only 10MB. (http://www.macupdate.com/app/mac/39580/mac-os-x-10.6.8-supplemental-update)

I *think* what this update is is actually 10.6.8 with the above "Supplemental Update" already rolled into it, and as a combo updater, can update an existing 10.6.8 installation the same as just installing the "Supplemental Update" can.

I hope my frustration with version numbering is more appropriate now... :) Not only are there two versions of 10.6.8, there are apparently two differently named updates to end up with the new version. (Is it "10.6.8 version 1.1?" Is it "10.6.8 with Supplemental Update?" Seems like it's both!)

I think it's all a plot to make us think we're losing our marbles :o)

After installing the Combo updater, rebooting wouldn't make it to the logon screen, the MBP 2011 13in just shut down.
Replacing the mach_kernel file with the 10.6.7 version from my emergency back-up restored everything to normal.
I experienced the same issue after applying the MBP Software Update 1.4 which installed a newer version of the mach kernel, turned out the new Combo updater has the same newer version of that file. You need to make the mach-kernel (to be found at your main volumes root level) visible first before being able to replace it.

Upgraded a couple days ago. Only glitch I've seen was with an old Xerox printer driver. Still the rock solid SL I'm used to. Currently working up courage to upgrade my main computer to Lion, which has also worked fairly well so far on my old MacBook.

If you're having lots of weird bugs, I highly suggest doing a fresh system install, running software update until everything is curent, and then migrating your user files back from your time machine.

great to see SL is still supported just in process of migrating back to SL from Lion which is not usable for me and probably one of the worst releases apple had in a long time

After updating to 10.6.8 v1.1 Adobe Reader X (10.1.0) fails on Safari, Camino, and Firefox. Reinstalling Reader doesn't fix.
