Apple releases OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.1
This morning Apple publicly released OS X Update 10.8.1, the first update for Mountain Lion. The release comes just two days shy of a month since the initial Mountain Lion release on July 25th. Here are the major changes and improvements included in the release:
- Resolve an issue that may cause Migration Assistant to unexpectedly quit
- Improve compatibility when connecting to a Microsoft Exchange server in Mail
- Address an issue playing audio through a Thunderbolt display
- Resolve an issue that could prevent iMessages from being sent
- Address an issue that could cause the system to become unresponsive when using Pinyin input
- Resolve an issue when connecting to SMB servers with long names
- Address a issue that may prevent Safari from launching when using a Proxy Automatic Configuration (PAC) file
- Improve 802.1X authentication with Active Directory credentials
Here's to hoping that 10.8.1 also fixes the battery life issues that many have been seeing on Apple notebooks. We've definitely seen a drop in battery life on our MacBook Pro with Retina display after going from Lion to Mountain Lion. You can purchase Mountain Lion for $19.99 on the Mac App Store.
