Last week news spread that Apple had killed support for Intel Atom CPUs to prevent people from creating Hackintosh netbooks, but DailyTech reports today that support for this chip has been restored in the latest developer build of Mac OS X:
Among those that first posted the news was Stell's Blog, the blog of an avid developer and Hackintosh fan. In a recently posted update he breaks the good news that Atom support has been resurrected "zombie style" in the latest developer build, 10C535. He writes:

Wow, didn’t expect to get linked all over the internet for this damn post. Anyways, in the latest development build Atom appears to have resurrected itself zombie style in 10C535. The Atom lives another day, but nothing is concrete until the final version of 10.6.2 is out.
