Apple has made the Mac OS X 10.1.4 update available, a 2.2 MB download 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, dial-up PPP connections are reported more reliable, 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. At the time of release, Apple had not provided any further details about the update; hopefully more information will be forthcoming.
