    Thursday afternoon, Apple has released an updated version of OS X Yosemite to the public. OS X 10.10.5, which has been in beta for a few weeks, is finally available for download and includes a variety of bug fixes and security improvements.

    As noted by Apple, the update fixes bugs with QuickTime Media Player, making the compatibility of the software better for Windows Media files. Moreover, the update also fixes compatibility with certain e-mail servers in the Mail application for OS X and fixes a problem in the Photos application for OS X that would hinder the ability to import photos from popular GoPro cameras.

    In terms of security, the update also fixes a nasty DYLD_PRINT_TO_FILE exploit that could be used to gain root access to a Mac OS X machine.
