Apple today released macOS Mojave 10.14.2, the second update to the macOS Mojave operating system that first launched in September. macOS Mojave 10.14.2 comes three weeks after Apple launched macOS Mojave 10.14.1 with Group FaceTime support and new emoji.

macOS Mojave 10.14.2 can be downloaded by going to the "Software Update" section of System Preferences, a new installation method that was introduced with the Mojave update.

The 10.14.2 update introduces performance improvements and bug fixes for issues that weren't addressed in macOS Mojave 10.14.1. There were no major feature changes discovered during the course of the beta testing period.

macOS Mojave 10.14.2 release notes:

  • Adds RTT (real-time text) support for Wi-Fi calling.

  • Adds a menu item to News for opening a story in Safari.

  • Resolves an issue that may prevent iTunes from playing media to third-party AirPlay speakers.

Enterprise-related:

  • Allows administrators to enable FileVault via MDM for mobile accounts and users created by MDM.

  • Allows users to reset their login password at the login window when that password has expired via a password policy.

  • Resolves an issue that prevents displays from working when connected to MacBook Pro models introduced in 2018, if certain third-party USB graphics devices are also connected.

Additional details on the macOS Mojave operating system can be found in our dedicated Mojave roundup.

I'll give it a week, see what the general consensus is, and if positive start the upgrade on my Macs from High Sierra.
You won't get a general consensus because Mojave has been rock solid since day one. There's nothing to talk about. The only few reactions are complaints, obviously.

I'm wondering if this update will finally be the one to get me to update from Sierra? I'm on a mid 2012 MBPR and not sure if I should make the jump, especially hearing some issues are still lingering. Anyone want to weigh in on this?
I took the plunge from El Capitan a few weeks back and the constant freezing I was facing during FaceTime had resolved instantly. Oddly, I feel Mojave runs faster than El Cap but it may be because it was a fresh clean install instead of a upgrade.


EDIT: How come even the freaking HomePod update got a front page article on MR but this didn't whereas HomePod is just a limited availability product?

Finished! The update ETA algorithm reminds me of old Windows file copy ETA.

It said ~30 minutes for update, while it really took around 10.
that's in the ballpark at least ;)

The Console application has been crippled since the release of MacOS Sierra. Many bugs are still not fixed. It still feels like an alpha/beta release. The crippled nature of the new Console application suggests that Apple handed off this application to a bunch of summer interns who have never used a Mac before. Apple should take the Console application back from those interns and return development back to their senior engineers.
