    Apple today released OS X 10.8.1, the first maintenance update to OS X Mountain Lion. The update is available directly from Apple's site or via the Software Update mechanism that directs users to the Mac App Store for updates.

    The update is Build 12B19, up two build numbers from last Friday's developer seed.
    OS X 10.8.1 is a relatively small update at just 24.2 MB, with Apple pushing out a handful of high-priority fixes for issues discovered in the initial public release of OS X Mountain Lion.

    Cue the complaints that it doesn't have a battery fix listed.

    command line softwareupdate still works!

    I was thinking that since all OS updates now occur through Mac App Store app, that Apple would remove the softwareupdate command line executable, but they haven't!

    I just hopes this fixes the issue where my MBP would lose the 3 finger and 4 finger multi touch gestures capabilities when waking from sleep (not always, but often enough)..

    What about the graphics card switching bug that gives the screen a blue tint sometimes on certain programs? :mad:

    That would require Apple to actually acknowledge there is an issue - we may find that there is a stealth battery fix in 10.8.1, it's just not in the patch notes.

    Pleasantly surprised by the small file size: I've been hoping for a fix to iMessage on OS X.

    in UK wants to download 4.something gigs

    Here in the uk i just hit the download for 10.8.1 in software update and it tells me i already have 10.8 installed - do i want to install it again ?

    Then it proceeds to download a 4.something gigb file

    Hmm


    I stopped that

    Edit....
    Okay - if you wait an extra minute or two then a second mountain lion will paear in software update- this is the small updater not all of 10.8.1 - be patient people and all will be okay

    Hopefully this will fix my mail going offline everytime I wake from sleep.

    And also fix the bug that means I can't share from iPhoto because it can't see a connection.

    Thats the full download of Mountain Lion as if you were doing a new install, for some reason it is showing on the update screen. If you wait for it to finish checking for updates or click check for updates again the actual update should appear in a separate box at the top.
