Just tried to update from App Store. Install failed. Then tried the combo update and it failed too. Something strange going on here.

Tried a 3rd time with the combo and it worked this time.

Three attempts to install it on my 2012 Mac Mini. When it was finally installed I had a bunch of small jpgs, originally in folders on an external hard drive, moved to my desktop.

downloaded and installed on my mid 2011 i7 mba and my late 2013 15" mbpr w/ the nvidia card.

no issues.

hopefully this fixes some of the issues with mail.app and some lingering issues with airplay mirroring.

Agreed. I'm getting tired of needing for Force Quit the mail app a couple of times each day when it stops responding.

i've not had any of that -- but admittedly -- my mail.app only serves a single gmail account and my icloud account.

i just get a lot of weird inconsistencies with gmail and unread emails, etc. i see it on my idevices as well -- but its very apparent on my macs.

- Parallels no longer connected to the Internet after the update (fixed)
- As usual, the #*&#(@ Folder Actions are broken by an OS X update. This is getting old. Tried the easiest fixes, but it looks like that won't be enough. Damn waste of time.

I just installed it into my 2012 Mac Pro using Software Update. As expected, the SSD lost TRIM support, so I had to re-enable this.

Haven't used it long enough to know if there will be any other issues.

Updated with no issues. So far, Mail.app is behaving and opens in a snap. I'll see how it syncs with Gmail to see if it's fixed.

My Mini updated first try. I am not noticing anything different but I do not use Mail.

I didn't see any bulletins in the update about Mail app being tweaked. Although it does seem to be working better.

It (Mail) seems to be working much better than before for me. On my iMac, the app is opening quick and closing quick. It is sending and receiving mail quicker too.

I see that the verification in Disk Utility is still imperfect- don't know when Apple will fix this.

OK. How did you fix that? I haven't done the update but my online banking and Quicken is done in Parallels running Windows, so I can't have that not working.

Updated 3 Macs with no problems. However people are reporting that the /Users folder is now hidden after the update. I just checked and that was the case on my MBA. I will check my other computers when I get home.

If you check the Find my Mac checkbox under iCloud under System Preferences it makes the /Users folder hide.

Nice.

One day since the update and it's now telling me Quicktime isn't installed for Chrome.

So in addition to hiding /Users, the folder is also made world writable. Apparently this has nothing to do with the 10.9.3 update and everything to do with iTunes 11.2 and Find My Mac.

Anyway here's a fix but you'll have to leave Find My Mac off.

Install the iTunes 11.2.1 update to fix this.

OK. How did you fix that? I haven't done the update but my online banking and Quicken is done in Parallels running Windows, so I can't have that not working.

I switched the setting from bridged to shared networking, then back to bridged. It was one of multiple things to try in the Parallels KB, and thankfully I didn't have to screw around for too long.

Coincidentally, it's when Quicken refused to connect that I noticed there was a problem.

For some reason, the Apple's OS X 10.9.3 update has been hiding the /Users directory for a lot of users. So, if you need easy access to that folder, you'll need to enter in a Terminal command.

sudo chflags nohidden /Users

One thing that i have noticed is that once that cmd is run it's not permanent and seems to be reverted upon reboot. Has anyone else run into this?

It wasn't a problem with 10.9.3. It was the iTunes 11.2 update. A 11.2.1 fix is out already:

Thanks for the reminder on TRIM, had to re-enable as well...

If you use Trim Enabler ( »www.cindori.org/software/trimenabler/ ), this can be set to check the TRIM status each time you start your Mac; it will alert you if the TRIM support has been lost.

I've been on 10.9.3 for a while, haven't had any issues. (seeded about 1 month or so ago)

I'm starting to like Tim more than Steve.

As an aside I'd like to see apple update web-kit again if possible.

I like the improved 4K support in 10.9.3. It makes a 4K monitor more versatile.

I have a Samsung 4k monitor connected to my original Retina Macbook Pro and it works ok. Mouse is kind of laggy but overall it works ok. Using HDMI. Might need to upgrade my machine to get better performance, but not happening until new machines come out.
