It looks like Apple's getting another fix in before Lion slinks on to the scene. Mac OS X 10.6.8 is now available for download, and brings with it a number of \"general operating system fixes,\" including further support for IPv6, improved VPN reliability, and removal of known variants of Mac Defen
