Following an extensive developer beta process, Apple has just released OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 to end users. The update brings a few new features and enhancements, including:

  • FaceTime Audio in the FaceTime and Messages apps
  • Contact blocking for FaceTime and iMessage
  • Mail app improvements
  • Autofill fixes for Safari
  • Audio fixes
  • VPN fixes
  • VoiceOver fixes

The release notes do not make mention of the SSL security bug that was squashed on iOS late last week, but a fix is present in this new OS X update. The update is available on the Mac App Store in the Software Update tab.

  10. Looks like Apple Mail is fixed!

    Under 10.9.0/1, my Exchange account (tied to Webmail) would update only sporadically or when I stopped and restarted Mail and same with my Gmail account, but to a lesser extent.

    Now with 10.9.2, Mail is updating both accounts immediately and normally, behaving just like it did under Mountain Lion.

    Phew, that was annoying and I hated using Outlook — it’s clunky and intrusive.

    • Steven, could you tell me what version of Mail it says you now have?

      See my note:

      I did the update. When I opened Mail it “hung” for a long time doing nothing. So, I finally did a Force Quit and reopened it. So, I’m not sure if I have the latest version of Mail — it shows as Version 7.2 (1874) Can anyone confirm if I do? It didn’t “index” or go through a set up process when I reopened and it seems like mail isn’t sending/receiving without me closing and opening it. If it didn’t, how can I get the latest version of Mail. Thanks!

    New update and still no fix for the multiple language auto-correct bug, which does not underline all errors. If only 1 language is selected it does work perfectly. Geeze, why did you broke it in Mavericks and not fixing it… This bug is driving me nuts and make me want to go back to Mountain Lion as I use 3 languages everyday.

  22. Didn’t fix any of my mail issues:

    1. Sent messages are ‘flagged’ with red flag (blackberry, exchange, Mail combination)
    2. Does not send calendar responses from exchange
    3. Conversations often don’t appear together (messages appear above, below the conversation header)

    With the amount of time it took to release this update these fixes should’ve been included. VERY ANNOYING!

  25. THEY STILL HAVEN’T ADDRESSED THE WIFI ISSUE THAT SET IN AFTER THE ORIGINAL MAVERICKS UPGRADE! Excuse me for shouting but the web is littered with complaints from people who have lost the ability to adequately use their Macbooks on wifi after upgrading to Mavericks! I have resorted to installing a homeplug device so that I can access the internet on my Macbook Pro via ethernet cable. When I was using Mountain Lion I could do anything internet based on wifi. Mavericks upgrade immediately put a stop to that, for me and for many others. Apple don’t seem to acknowledge this at all! I’ve been waiting patiently for an update that will fix this and when I saw 10.9.2 I felt a quiver of anticipation and hope…only to be disappointed again! Nada! I fear I will never use my Macbook Pro on wifi again!

  26. I can no longer drag smart links to iMessage. Dragging a web page favicon to the chat has always created a readable link based on the page title. Now it creates a bookmark file that needs to be downloaded by the receiver. Will it even work if the other person is using Windows? It still works to drag the favicon to Mail or a text document.

    I’m just going to add my comments – that yes I am annoyed that I cannot do the one click to put my Mac to sleep anymore, thanks for others mentioning- I thought it was a prob with my setup and had started removing new apps – gonna put them back now… I still see no fix for the disappearing mouse cursor prob and frankly feel atm that no one at Apple cares or is doing anything to fix this bogus beta system that should never have been released…I just spent AUS$3,500 on a new mac and really now I think I should have bought a PC.. this is not what I expect from Apple- I’ve been an Apple user for 30 years (yup) and I have never felt angrier with the way they treated the security hole…. how dare they even sleep until it is fixed… they are now the biggest computer company in the world – surely they can hire hamsters to run on the wheel after hours and get something like that fixed quicker??
