Apple updates OS X Mountain Lion, Safari browser

Apple has updated its OS X Mountain Lion, which brings the OS up to version 10.8.4 and has patched several bugs including Microsoft Exhange compatibility problems, while bringing the Safari up to version 6.0.5.

Mountain Lion OS X received about 16 non-security bug fixes that range from improved Calendar-to-Exchange server synchronisation to enabling FaceTime video calls to non-US phone numbers.

In addition, a pair of fixes boosted the reliability of linking to workplace Wi-Fi networks, while other fixes handled issues such as Macs’ denial to go into sleep mode following run Boot Camp and its chat and texting client being mixing the order of messages.

Majority of the fixes had been aimed at open-source components incorporated with OS X, including OpenSSL (13 patches) and Ruby (8), while another four patches removed bugs in Apple’s QuickTime media player.

The 10.8.4 version also requires Java Web Start applications downloaded online to be signed with a Developer ID certificate and the applications downloaded with improper signature would be blocked by Gatekeeper.
