New Mac OS X 10.6.6 Golden Master Edition Seeded To Developers

Just weeks after Apple released Mac OS X 10.6.5 to its customers, the company is learned to be already in the process of releasing the next major release. A new version of the upcoming Mac OS X 10.6.6 – termed Build 10J537 – has now been released to developers and is available for download.

What’s interesting is that this new build has been dubbed the Golden Master edition to developers who access the application via the Mac App Store developer program. GM editions are basically those versions of software releases that are released just prior to a public release and are considered to be the last of the test releases. Dubbing the recent release as a GM edition could mean another public release of Mac OS X is just round the corner.

We wonder if this could happen before the new year though.
