Apple‘s Mac OS X 10.1.1 update, released today via the Software Update mechanism, rolls a number of fixes and improvements into the operating system. The update adds unspecified improvements to many USB and FireWire devices, recognizes more digital cameras, and improves CD and DVD burning. Networking has been tweaked as well, with changes made to the operation of AFP, SMB, and WebDAV protocols. The Finder and Mail applications are also improved (again in unspecified ways), as is printing support. Hardware accelerated video mirroring has also been enabled for the latest PowerBook G4. The update is available only from the Software Update preferences panel, and is a 14 MB download. According to Apple, you must previously have installed the Installer Update 1.0, released last week, to perform this latest Mac OS X update.
