    After a beta period spanning several weeks, Apple today released the final version of OS X 10.8.4. The update, which can be accessed via the Mac App Store, includes several notable bug fixes including a fix for an issue that caused iMessages to display out of order along with Microsoft Exchange and Calendar compatibility improvements.

    The update also includes Safari 6.0.5, which improves stability for websites with chat features and games.

    After eight different beta builds, Apple closed its 10.8.4 Beta Testing Program last Friday. During the beta, Apple had asked users to focus on Wi-Fi, Graphics Drivers, and Safari. The public version of OS X 10.8.4 is the same 12E55 build that was seeded to developers on May 24.

    - OS X Mountain Lion Update v10.8.4 (342.33 MB)
    - OS X Mountain Lion Update v10.8.4 (Combo) (809.98 MB)

    Alongside OS X 10.8.4, Apple has also released security updates for OS X Lion and Snow Leopard:

    - Security Update 2013-002 (Lion) (57.69 MB)
    - Security Update 2013-002 Server (Lion) (105.61 MB)

    - Security Update 2013-002 (Snow Leopard) (329.85 MB)
    - Security Update 2013-002 Server (Snow Leopard) (404.83 MB)

    The links appear to be correct even though they state "10.8.3"...

    And does it fix GUI bugs/hanging in Logic pro, like 10.8.3 was supposed to do?

    I don't see any significant bugfixes...kinda dissapointed.

    I guess better window management, opengl 4.1, newer libraries, etc would be a wet wish for 10.9. Seems like all Apple cares about is iOS, screw OSX users.

    Nothing noticeably different thus far.

    i've always found it curious that these fixes tend to be for fairly obscure issues

    Think you have a defective one, friend. I've never had a kernel panic on mine. I've never had so much as a kernel sneeze, for that matter.

    There are always a number of under-the-hood fixes that are not detailed in the release notes, as they are not keen to admit fault if they can avoid it.
