Apple has released updates for its computers running the OS X Mountain Lion. The so called ‘Supplemental Update 1.0’ is highly useful if you are experiencing issues with certain Japanese characters appearing incorrectly in Mail or caught your kids accessing the sites using Safari that you confidently blocked using the parental control settings or have problems booting your machine with more than 64 GB of RAM (yes, 64 GB), states crazyengineers website. The site of the update is just 27MB.

There is also an update for older OS X v10.7.5. The OS X v10.7.5 Supplemental Update is recommended for all users running OS X Lion v10.7.5 and includes the following fixes:

  • Resolves an issue that may cause Time Machine backups to take a very long time to complete
  • Addresses an issue that prevents certain applications signed with a Developer ID from launching

The Supplemental Update is recommended if you installed the Mac OS X Lion v10.7.5 Update (build 11G56).

It is not needed if you install the Mac OS X Lion v10.7.5 Update (build 11G63).
