Mac OS X 10.1.3 Released

Send Article to a Friend

Mac OS X 10.1.3 Released -- Apple has released the Mac OS X 10.1.3 update as a 17.3 MB download via Software Update. (If you're running Mac OS X 10.1 or 10.1.1, a separate 38.4 MB combined update to 10.1.3 is available.) As with previous updates to Mac OS X, this one is well worth getting, and kudos to Apple for providing decent release notes. Along with reliability improvements, Mac OS X 10.1.3 includes more drivers for CD burners and digital cameras, enables DVD playback on external VGA displays connected to PowerBook G4s, turns video mirroring on by default when a PowerBook connects to a new display, and offers improvements to iTunes with full screen visualizers. Networking security received attention as well, with login authentication support for LDAP and Active Directory services, an update to OpenSSH 3.0.2p1, WebDAV support for Digest authentication, and support for SSL encryption in Apple's Mail application.
