Apple previously released a Gmail fix in early November after issues with Mavericks created instability.

What’s New in Version 10.9.1

The 10.9.1 update improves the stability and compatibility of your Mac.

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

Apple first issued OS X 10.9.1 to developers in November followed by additional test releases, but today’s release is public and available to all Mavericks users via the Mac App Store. Support documents for today’s release should be available here later today.

Update: Safari 7.0.1 (and 6.1.1 for users on Mountain Lion) has been released to the public as well. The 7.0.1 update is rolled into the OS X update, but Mountain Lion users will need to check for updates and install it separately.
