Apple Releases OS X 10.9.1 to Fix Mail and Safari Bugs

Apple today pushed out OS X 10.9.1, an update for its Mavericks operating system that addresses multiple issues including a problem with Mail. The update promises improved support for Gmail in OS X Mail, as well as fixes for users with custom Gmail settings. There's also improved reliability of Smart Mailboxes and search, and a fix for a bug that prevented contact groups from working properly in Mail.

 

Also included in the update is a fix for an issue that prevented VoiceOver from speaking sentences that contain emoji and an issue that stopped iLife and iWork from updating on non-English systems. Apple has also addressed the bug that caused multiple prompts to unlock "local items" keychain and an issue that saw Japanese keyboards retain a previously used language.

OS X 10.9.1 also comes with Safari 7.0.1, which will fix Safari's habit of becoming unresponsive when filling out forms on certain websites (including fedex.com and stub hub), improve credit card autofill compatibility and VoiceOver compatibility with Facebook, and update Shared Links periodically when open in the Safari Sidebar. 

You can download OS X 10.9.1 directly from Apple by checking for software updates on your machine. As always, be sure to back up your files before  running any updates!

    - Make the ultimate upgrade, buy a Mac.
    - What's the difference?
    - Well, you exchange one buggy OS that has become secure over decades of experience and fencing off nasty attackers, against another buggy OS that remains secure as long as it doesn't have enough users for attacks to pay off.

    [If salespeople were to become honest.]

    Have you guys used it for any length of time? I suspect not. Mac OSX is the 2nd most stable OS I've ever worked with. Most stable was OS2/Warp.

    @TriedandTrue Tell me, which good OS has no updates? Which one?? Exactly! Microsoft does it EVERY TUESDAY. An OS that has no updates is a bad OS. Maybe someone needs to explain that to you, but I'm not wasting my time to do so.
