It may be a minor update for most, but those with a brand new MacBook Pro will no doubt find the just-released OS X 10.6.7 upgrade particularly welcome. In addition to various minor improvements for all Macs, it includes a fix for early 2011 MacBook Pros
that promises to "improve graphics stability and external display compatibility." That sounds like it may actually fix both the freezing issue
we reported on earlier today and the flickering issue
that's been plaguing Thunderbolt-equipped MacBook Pros since day one, though we've yet to confirm either ourselves. Let us know how things work out for you in comments.
Early indications are that it does indeed fix both the freezing and flickering issues. We'll let you know if we find anything else.
