    After a lengthy beta period, Apple today released the final version of OS X 10.8.5 (build 12F37) after seeding the ninth beta, build 12F36, to developers last week. The update, which can be accessed via the Mac App Store, includes fixes for Mail, AFP file transfer performance, screen savers, and Xsan.

    Alongside OS X 10.8.5, Apple has also released security updates for OS X Lion and Snow Leopard:

    - Security Update 2013-004 (Lion) (113.23 MB)
    - Security Update 2013-004 Server (Lion) (161.17 MB)

    - Security Update 2013-004 (Snow Leopard) (331.5 MB)

    The update also includes Safari version 5.1.10 for OS X Snow Leopard (48.40 MB), which contains security fixes and is recommended for all Snow Leopard users.

    Apple is also working on the next version of OS X, Mavericks, which is expected to debut in the fall. Mavericks includes multiple new features like a tabbed Finder, full screen dual monitor capabilities, Safari improvements, and new apps for both Maps and iBooks. Apple has thus far released seven Developer Previews of the new operating system.

    To be honest, thinking about not updating anymore because Mavericks is here in a few weeks anyway... (info that changed your life, I know.)

    WOW! You are the first person that I know that is having the same issue. I rarely get that, but when I do it is very annoying.

    No, you're not alone. I've had it occur sporadically with Safari where the pointer would disappear but any mouse-over triggers on the webpage would be actioned when the invisible pointer tracked over it.

    Disappearing cursor

    You know, I think it has to do with a safari plug in -- I often get it with the pdf display plug in, and sometimes with flash.

    I didn't know Apple still made computers or software for them.

    Doesn't show up in Software Update for me yet. I liked the old way of software updates from Preferences better (vs. App Store)

    Uneventful as usual. Don't notice any changes, but wasn't having any issues.

    Still trying to resist installing the Mavericks until it's fully baked ...

    When is Apple going to get around to addressing the long shutdown? Would be nice if this update took care of it.

    I've had the same. Doesn't last for long or happen very often but it is annoying.

    This is great news for consumers. It proves Apple still cares passionately about the Mac.

    Nope. Not just you. Happens to me when I get a video to go full screen on my iMac, and I have something else running on an attached monitor. Almost every time.
