The release, OS X 10.6.7, “…includes general operating system fixes for Mac OS X Snow Leopard that enhance the stability, compatibility, performance, and security,” according to Apple’s official statement.

It’s believed the issues were related to the machines’ graphics drivers, as well as early niggles with the new Thunderbolt connection. After a slew of complaints on its official forums, Apple will be hoping this update will kill these problems off stat.
