I applied the Combo update and still do not see this update in Software Update. Could it be that it will only appear if there is an application in your system that needs this update? If so, then it would not be necessary for the rest of us. So I am reluctant to download this separate update unless it appears in Software Update.

PRETTY QUICK ???@#!%%$!!! I've been selling Apple computers since 1987 and this flaw falls in the category of losing ethernet after a system update (somewhere in the nineties). My customers went wild for the last 4 weeks while totally depending on pdf workflows. Is nobody at Apple testing in the real world or just checking if Safari and Mail works? The fix of course is a 5 star but should never have been necessary to issue...

There have been a string of bad updates since OSX 10.6.1.

Whilst I spend nearly everyday advising users to install only Combo updates, Apple has not warned one user of the problems. Posting belated fixes deep within Apple's support pages serves to protect Apple's shiny reputation but leaves its users in deep sh!t for as long as possible.

Perhaps that will teach your customers to test new versions before upgrading? ;) (Or at least wait a month or so.)

@Hanspoot, in fairness to your customers, you might want to tell them to wait at least a week before applying new updates. There is always risk involved in jumping on updates that were only tested by a controlled group. It only took a couple days after 10.6.7 was released before we saw reports of printing and PDF issues. In enterprise environments the rule of thumb is to wait one week before jumping on new patches. This way you let the others bleed. ;)

To be fair Rubaiyat. If you go to Apple's main support downloads page the update is right there.

Thresher. The problems with all the non-Combo updates has never been announced by Apple and that is a lot of updates for a long time.

Works as expected. There was a month delay between the release of 10.6.7 and this update so one can only assume that problem was a little more complex than just a couple of lines of code.

Under a month is pretty quick, actually. That has to include reporting and discovery, verification, determining actual root cause (and how it was possible that it crept into 10.6.6), determining a safe fix, and finally verifying the fix through all hardware variations. And all known scenarios, taking into account that it wasn't just that something simple broke, but it touches the type rendering, PDF, and printing subsystems.

Apple must have thought it was serious enough to give it a high priority for such a fast track, because they didn't hold up this fix to include with the next 10.6.X release.

@Neutralzone Did you actually read what I wrote, I never said that a month delay was bad, I clearly stated that there was a month delay between the 10.6.7 release and the font update because the issue was complex and needed more time. Dear god, what is it with some people and their inability to read.

@Kawaii-Gardiner: Seems you should follow your own advice (or at least set-shift before you rant). I see Neutalzone simply embellished your "review". You took this as an affront to your brilliant "works as expected" review (which, you have to admit, is a bit of a snore). What is it with people and their inability to just be cool?

Does not appear in Software Update. Wonder why.

Re-apply the 10.6.7 combo update, reboot then run 'Software Update' again.

Indeed, does not show up, at least with some configs

Since the introduction of X.6.7 I have had a screen draw problem with the font I use for creating Dreamweaver fonts. This update has fixed that. Thanks, Apple!

Oops, "for creating Dreamweaver documents" (I wish there was a correction feature for these reviews).
