Mac OS X 10.1.3 Released


Apple has released an update to Mac OS X 10.1.3 as a 17.3 MB download via Software Update. As with previous updates to Mac OS X, this one is well worth getting, and kudos to Apple for providing more detailed release notes this time. Along with general 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 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.
