Apple on Thursday released two supplemental updates, one for OS X 10.8.2 Mountain Lion, which brings fixes for three issues, and another for the legacy OS X 10.7.5 Lion, which solves two problems.

Supplemental Update


As relatively minor releases, supplemental updates serve as stopgaps between major version changes and sometimes include time-sensitive issue resolutions.

    Hmm… still don't see it, though Aperture 3.4.1 just showed up, despite having installed it a week ago… 


     


    Did we ever get an article on iPhoto 9.4.1 when it came out, then? Because it's out now, too.


     


    I still don't understand how we knew or expected it before that happened.

    Just updated my mid 2011 13" MBA.  First I've seen of the iPhone 9.4.1 update also.  It was dated 10/01/12.. but I certainly didnt see it before today.


     


    After installing both updates.. my mail app also reconfigured itself.  I guess to support the Japanese characters better.


     


    Always feels so weird to have to reboot my Macbook after installing these updates.  Its about the only time my Macbook gets restarted.  Coming from the Windows world.. thats always a pretty big difference.

    I want them to consider fixing my iMac that stutters when playing music and movies.

    While they're doing that, perhaps they can help these poor souls with the same problem??

    Yes, since ML. A major pain. I have to turn Wifi off and on many many times every day. Only on my iMac. The laptops are fine.

    What do your System Logs report? [under About this Mac]


     


    What does the Base Station report?

    I havent had either of those issues, luckily (although I don't use Wifi on my iMacs) but my Time Machine backups have been fine on all my computers (including my mother in-law's one white macbook that cant run ML but is running 10.7.5.


     


    My weird bug I got was when I upgraded to Mountain Lion, none of my Apple TVs would wake my iMac up from sleep anymore.  I did disk utility/repair disk before and after install, etc, and it worked the morning before on Lion, and stopped with the only change being the ML upgrade.  10.8.1- still had to go manually wake my iMac to stream from my iTunes library.  10.8.2- fixed it.


     


    I googled if anyone else was having the problem, and couldn't find one.  So weird things like that hit some of us, but not others.  And even on crazy rare cases like mine (which I did report), it gets fixed inevitably.  I don't understand... and don't care to.  :-)

    Wow, that limitation is finally addressed after, um, forever? I turned off parental controls quite a while ago, mainly due to this limitation, and now rely on education, common sense, actual parenting, and OpenDNS FamilyShield.

    This update killed my SSD startup volume. :(

    Not happy. I have to back it up and reformat. This is going to take days to fix.
