Mac OS X 10.1.4 Released -- Apple has released Mac OS X 10.1.4, a 2.2 MB update available via Mac OS X's Software Update. The new software adds support for Fast 10 SCSI drives and disc recorders from SmartDisk, EZQuest, and LaCie. On the networking front, a potential delay has been removed when using dial-up PPP connections, performance of Sherlock file searching on local and remote volumes has been improved, and networks with 3Com routers can browse Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) services. Finally, network security has improved: BSD-based TCP/IP connections check and block broadcast or multicast IP destination addresses, thus avoiding a potentially serious security hole. An AppleCare Knowledge Base document published shortly after the update's release goes into a little more detail than the description of the update in Software Update. [JLC]
