Apple have released version OS X 10.6.3. Fixes found in the latest version are said to increase reliability and stability of the operating system as well as a few application specific problems have received a fix too.

One of the main things that has been fixed was a problem found in Mac OS X 10.6.2 where a USB flash drive could become corrupted. According to the release notes an update to improve reliability on 3rd party USB devices is included which will hopefully mean less corruption happens.
