OSX 10.9.1 Change Log

If you open the Mac App Store, you’ll notice a shiny new update awaiting you: OS X 10.9.1. It’s an bug fix update that brings performance and stability improvements to Apple’s desktop offering. Apple recommends that all current users of Mavericks update to OS X 10.9.1.

This update comes a tad short of two weeks since Apple released its last 10.9.1 beta, and contains no new surprises for those of you following the beta trail. Have a look inside for the full change log.

Included with the update are the following changes:

  • 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

Again, there are literally no differences between this version and the last seeded beta release as far as features go. It will be interesting to see if this release totally clears up the ongoing issues that Gmail users are experiencing with the Mail app. Let us know what you find after you install the update.

    Maybe now’s the time to finally update to Mavericks…

      Works better if you do a clean install..

      Mavericks full if major bugs. It’s the worst release in a very long time. I would hold off until at least 10.9.3 or so.

      From someone who literally reinstalled it four times (had issues getting it to be an encrypted install with Filevault) PLEASE take my advice:

      1. Download OS X Mavericks
      2. Backup the file to a flash drive
      3. UPGRADE to OS X Mavericks
      4. Use the terminal command (Google it) to burn it to a flash drive so it’s installable from it
      5. Do a CLEAN install from the flash drive

      I forget how I did it, but I couldn’t get Filevault to encrypt my drive or I had an issue that there was no recovery partition (maybe both). Finally I learned to do it the way mentioned above and it worked, but damn that pissed me off. I felt relieved I didn’t pay for that hell of an experience.

    I’m starting to get anxious about OS 11. If you look up concepts, some of them look pretty nice and flat.

    • Lance Baker

      Anxious or eager?

      • ehX

        The way he said it (nice and flat) I think he means eager.

        Have a nice day. πŸ˜€

    Finally. Ever since I updated to OS X Mavericks I have had an issue where when my computer switches from using my Nvidia graphics card to the integrated card there would be an error where shadows turned into black, distorted lines. Hopefully this fixes it.

    And if not then hopefully (more-so than 10.9.1 being a patch for it) it is NOT a hardware issue. And if it is, hopefully (even more-so than above) it doesn’t cost me above $10 or $15.

      Nevermind, the issue still exists. =/

    I can’t download mavericks from my late 2013 retina macbook pro
    how can I create bootable media to perform a clean install πŸ™

    • D R

      you can’t if you can’t download it
      why can’t you download it?

      • αž‚αžΈαž˜αž›αžΆαž„

        this is why I can’t download.
