System 6.0.8 (Finder 6.1.8, System Software Update 6.0.8) is the last wide release of System 6 from Apple Computer. Apple describes this as the "System 7 printer-compatible version of System 6". It is essentially System 6.0.7 with updated printing software from System 7 so that Macs can share LaserWriters in a compatible way. No other new features or bug fixes were introduced.

Release[]

Released in April 1991, just months before the release of System 7, this was the only version of System 6 that could run on a Macintosh LC II. (The Macintosh LC III requires System 7.1.)

Updates[]

High-bit language support for the Macintosh Classic, Classic II, PowerBook 100, Macintosh LC and Macintosh LC II was added in System 6.0.8L. International language support was also included in System 6.0.8.1.
