Although it was rumored to launch alongside the new Safari 5 at the 2010 Worldwide Developers Conference
this week, Mac OS X 10.6.4 appears to be still in development, with Build 10F566 reportedly seeded to devs for further testing.
World of Apple has been able to obtain
the seed notes for this seventh build of OS X 10.6.4, noting that 10F566 shows no differences compared with the last couple of builds, as far as the seed notes are concerned. The build weighs in at 613.8MB in delta form, the source informs. No information is being offered on how big the combo update is. The seed notes, as provided by the source in question, have been reproduced below for our readers.

To be noted that the area of changes ("included in this update") is identical to the one leaked
by MacGeneration earlier this week, when the French site claimed it had received word of an imminent release during WWDC10. The report was credible due, in part, to the site’s acknowledgement that Apple was recommending to all users running Mac OS X Snow Leopard in a typical, changelog-style manner: “The 10.6.4 Update is recommended for all users running Mac OS X Snow Leopard and includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac…”
Apple was said to have included in the release notes for the update-to-come. While the French site was right about one major update - Safari 5
-, the fourth incremental update to Snow Leopard is yet to be officially released.
