Apple has updated OS X Server, the application that runs on top of OS X Mountain Lion to expand the system's server feature set.
The most notable change in this update appears to be a new caching server for Mac App Store updates. Presumably, the server now downloads updates for things like iPhoto and OS X itself to prevent an organization from needing to download large updates multiple times for one workgroup.
OS X Server is available for $19.99 on the Mac App Store. [Direct Link]What's New in Version 2.2
