Last time we published that Apple seeded latest version of Snow Leopard build 10A432 and many popular tech blogs including Gizmodo, Macrumors indicates it’s a final GM release. If you missed that article then check here Snow Leopard Hits GM Build 10A432 Spotted. The term Golden Master (GM) is used to describe a final build which will be released to manufacturing. But several developers who are familiar with Apple development releases have cast doubt in such a claim. According to developers the latest preview contains bugs, including Mail instabilities, scroll bar errors, Safari 4 errors and quite a few freezing applications. Release date of Snow Leopard is just around the corner according to World of Apple “ Apple has officially scheduled Snow Leopards launch for September but prolific blogger John Gruber suggests that Apple could ship Snow Leopard on August 28th.” So it’s totally unclear whether Apple is yet to release another Snow Leopard build to developers or we have to wait for the final release.

The icon which now features a snow leopard rather than the previous purple space image is usually a strong indicator of final artwork for Mac OS X install DVD.
