[SU] 10.8.1 is out

Apple today released OS X 10.8.1, the first maintenance update to OS X Mountain Lion. The update is available directly from Apple's site or via the Software Update mechanism that directs users to the Mac App Store for updates.
This update includes general operating system fixes that improve the stability and compatibility of your Mac, including fixes that:

- 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.
OS X 10.8.1 is a relatively small update at just 24.2 MB, with Apple pushing out a handful of high-priority fixes for issues discovered in the initial public release of OS X Mountain Lion.

I cannot deny anything I did not say.

I wonder if they resolved the display issue for Safari text boxes. Annoys the shit outta me.

Nope. Not that I can see. Still have issues. Although I did get notification that 10.8.2 seed was available and is around 700MB in size.

"None of the updates could be installed".

Awesome...this is why I stopped using Windows. Off to get the DL from Apple.com

EDIT - Stand alone installer failed too. Wouldn't install on either 2011 MBA or Mini. Finally installed on the MBA after 2 attempts. The Mini took 3. Each time it would seem to finish but report that the install failed. Console didn't show any problems but on the third time it took the install. WTF. I been having the worst luck with my HW lately.

No mention of a fix for the battery issues, but hopefully it's in there. Upgraded and waiting to see how long my battery will last.

When it fails did you goto "About This Mac" to see if the version number changed?

I have heard of some failed 10.8.1 upgrades that seemed to have actually worked.

It didn't change. No errors reported in the console either. It seems to be working fine now.

Intredasting.

When I selected update, it started to download the whole damn OS again.

Guess I'll be on 10.8 until I find it on the Apple site to download... if it's even there.

FYI, the Appstore offered me two updates. One was just the 10.8.1 update and the other was 10.8.1 (whole OS).

What am I missing, I check for updates on my 10.7.4 OS and it says I am up-to-date...

I launched itunes and logged into appstore but don't see any update notice there or anything related to MacOSX update. Can you enlighten me somebody?

Edit: I see original poster using OS name OS X Mountain Lion. Is that some new OS version from 'Lion'? I guess that's where the glitch is?

You first have to update to Mountain Lion 10.8 to upgrade to 10.8.1.

You're currently on Lion 10.7. I believe the upgrade price was $19.99 on the App Store. Search for "Mountain Lion" and you'll find it.

Edit: Mountain Lion (10.8) is to Lion (10.7) what Snow Leopard (10.6) was to Leopard (10.5). A more of an intermediate release rather than a full blown OS update with tons of new features. That's why they cost less now, and are released more often.

Thanks, just looked around as you suggest and found out.

Maybe I should just wait a bit or is it update that runs without a glitch for most people? I maintain iMacs for a family and do it via remote LMI connection and would hate to mess their three iMacs up if I can help it.

Yeah, but there's clearly a bug. Your font is all fucked up.
