Apple Releases first Mountain Lion update 10.8.1

After Apple released Mountain Lion a few weeks ago, they've released their first ever update on August 23rd. This update is recommended to all Mountain Lion users and includes general operating system fixes that improve the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac.

In this update, the following fixes were included in the update:

  • 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 an issue that may prevent Safari from launching when using Proxy authentication
  • Improve 802.1X authentication with Active Directory credentials

With Mountain Lion, all automatic updates are now being done via the Mac App Store. If you want to download an stand-alone installer, you can manually update it here.

Mountain Lion also includes a new feature called Power Nap. Which is responsible for Mac OS X periodic updates to Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Reminders, Notes, Photo Stream, Find My Mac, and Documents in the Cloud even if the computer goes to sleep. It also downloads software updates automatically when it is connected to a power source. Unfortunately, this feature only works on Mac notebooks with built-in flash memory storage.
