Apple releases Mountain Lion, Safari updates

No problems to report – so far

Apple has released an OS update that brings Mountain Lion up to version 10.8.4, fixes an array of bugs including Microsoft Exhange compatibility problems, and brings Safari up to version 6.0.5.

As listed by Apple, OS X 10.8.4 provides the following:

Apple provides a link to its security updates page for "detailed information about the security content of this update," but as per usual with OS X updates, that information has yet to be posted, but will appear when Cupertinian web folks get around to it.

The update can be accessed by selecting [Apple Menu] > Software Update, which will launch the OS X App Store; select – you guessed it – Updates, and simply follow the directions. If you'd prefer, you can download the 810MB Combo Update here.

If you use Software Update, Apple notes that the size of the download will vary depending upon the Mac onto which you are installing it. For our five-year-old Mac Pro, it weighed in at 152MB, and the entire installation process took around 10 minutes. Your mileage may vary.

At first blush, all appears to be copacetic with our vintage Mac Pro, but we'll be sure to check in tomorrow at the OS X Mountain Lion section of Apple's Support Communities website to see if any of our fellow fanbois have uncovered difficulties with either the update or Safari 6.0.5. ®
