Mountain Lion Update Released, 10.8.1 Now Available

Apple has released a patch to Mountain Lion today, bringing the operating system to version 10.8.1. The patch notes are always vague, but you can be assured that a lot of bugs have been squashed, and holes have been patched from the original 10.8 release. You’d be wise to update immediately. The patch is relatively small, just 24.2 MB, which usually indicates that Apple’s pushing out priority patches as quick as possible.

Here’s Apple’s patch notes:

  • 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.

Go get your update on through the Mac App Store.
