    What's your SMC Version since installing 10.8.2 12C50?

    It should not change SMC version. Only firmware update does.

    ----------

    Installed the new build half an hour ago on my MBPr running on battery. The battery percentage is 85% and showing about 6:20 time left. Not bad.

    Looks like the transition animation has been dumbed down a bit. Switching spaces is not as wobbling as before. The elastic effect is almost gone. But performance does improve for me. In Safari, scrolling theverge.com is way smoother than in 10.8.1.

    The update is pretty good so far.
