Apple Releases OS X 10.9.1 With Several Mail Improvements

Apple today released the final version of OS X 10.9.1, after seeding several betas to developers beginning in November. The last version of the beta, build 13B40, was distributed to developers on December 3 and to AppleCare employees on December 4.

The 10.9.1 update includes improved support for Gmail in OS X Mail, improved reliability for Smart Mailboxes, an update to the Shared Links option in the Safari Sidebar, and a fix for a bug preventing VoiceOver from speaking sentences containing emoji. Apple previously introduced additional Mail fixes in a separate Mail update released in early November.

10.9.1

This update includes the following fixes:
- Improved support for Gmail in OS X Mail, and fixes for users with custom Gmail settings
- Improves the reliability of Smart Mailboxes and search in Mail
- Fixes an issue that prevented contact groups from working properly in Mail
- Resolves an issue that prevented VoiceOver from speaking sentences that contain emoji
- Updates Shared Links periodically when open in the Safari Sidebar

OS X 10.9.1 can be accessed via the Mac App Store. Apple has also released a specific version of OS X 10.9.1 designed for the late 2013 13 and 15-inch Retina MacBook Pros with "system specific enhancements" designed to improve stability and compatibility.

What a lame bunch of fixes. :confused:

Would you rather they released 10.9 with more bugs so they could have a more "impressive" list of bugfixes later?

Is the combo update also available yet?

There is no combo update for 10.X.1 obviously. It's the first point update, so delta is combo.

Gawd, I hope it fixes the Safari bug where it would randomly load a random page before I could even finish typing the URL and hit ENTER.

So freaking annoying! :mad:

I hope this fixes that problem that only I experienced. You know, the really obscure one. Yes, the one I whined about in random places all over the forum to make it look like more people besides me had it.
Yeah Apple, FIX IT!! Even though I should know by now that you don't even read this forum and i'd be better off using your feedback form instead!!
