    Default Apple Launches Mac OS X 10.7.4 Update


    If you are a Mac OS X Lion user, be sure to go to >Software Update and check for updates, as you will find an update for Mac OS X (version 10.7.4) available for download. The update was launched today by Apple to address some minor issues with the operating system, including:
    • Addressing an issue where "Reopen windows when logging back in" option was always enabled
    • Improved compatibility with third party British keyboards
    • Addressing an issue that could keep files from being correctly saved to a server
    • Improved reliability with copying files to an SMB server
    • Includes RAW image compatibility for additional digital cameras
    • Enables automatic login for NIS accounts
    • Improves performance when connecting to a WebDAV server
    • Improves printing to an SMB print queue
    • Improves using a proxy auto-configuration (PAC) file
    • Improves Internet sharing of PPPoE connections
    • Addresses permission issues that may be caused if you use the Get Info inspector function "Apply to enclosed items…" on your home directory
    • Improves the reliability of binding and logging into Active Directory accounts
    • Passwords no longer stored in plain text
    • The OS X Lion v10.7.4 Update includes Safari 5.1.6, which contains stability improvements
    • Other stability improvements

    Mac OS X 10.7.4 comes with an update to Safari (version 5.1.6), however you can find an even newer version of Safari (version 5.1.7) from Apple’s Web site which removes any outdated versions of Adobe Flash player from your system and basically forces you to install it manually from Adobe’s site. This, in turn, helps keep your Mac secure from the many fake Adobe Flash player update prompts that have led to Trojans and other nasty malware in the past.

    Depending on the type of Mac computer you have, the size of the update will vary and download speeds will vary depending on your Internet connection. The update is recommended for all Mac OS X Lion users because the improved stability in the update will keep the great user experience of Mac OS X to a maximum.

    Like the move to check flash for you and warn you. Since flash has so many security holes.

    This update also fixes the Filevault flaw that was announced earlier this week.

    I think it's pretty self-explanatory. It was an oopsie by the Apple software engineers.

    For anyone running Lion in a virtual machine, I can testify that I was able to upgrade from 10.7.3 to 10.7.4 without any problems in Vmware Workstation 8.
