Apple has released OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 Supplemental Update, a small update that addresses a few specific issues that weren’t large enough in scope to require a new version number. In particular, it fixes a problem that caused certain Japanese characters to appear incorrectly in Mail, fixes a crash with DVD Player, enables access to secure Web sites in Safari when parental controls are enabled, and fixes an issue that could prevent systems with more than 64 GB of RAM from starting up.

Fun Way to Send Attachments in Mail
If you're working in a file that you want to attach to a message in Apple Mail, you can transfer the file to Mail easily: From the title bar of the file's window, drag the little proxy icon to Mail's icon on the Dock. Your Mac will make Mail the active application and open a new outgoing message, with the file attached.
(If your icon won't drag, the file probably isn't saved.)

Groups in Contacts on an iMac display as before but when synching with iPhone 4 or iPad 2 do not display on the iOS device.
I called Apple support and they hadn't heard of any problem but on their Forums, there are several others complaining or wondering also.
Do you know anything about this?
It is not critical, but is very convenient to have groups in the address book, or contacts app.
