    Any change log ?

    Can someone who tried these report his feedback ?

    I spent enough time removing incompatible bootcamp 5.0.x files.

    Tried it. They don't seem to fix any of the problems that I've been having with windows 8.1.

    Is Apple playing with us ? notice the " Windows 8.1" is in different font on the website... someone must have edited the page a while ago.

    Looks like they haven't made up their mind yet.

    Hello Apple ? I know you're reading me.. Fix the damn Thunderbolt driver, I want sleep option back.

    It has that on both of the Boot Camp software links now.

    Different font. It wasn't there couple of minutes ago I put my money on that lol.

    Anyone I installed this update and can't feel any difference. Maybe because my machine was already working fine with 5.0 release.




    Edit : Annnnnd..... it's gone

    my bad I did not know they were seperate OS, I guess I thought 8.1 was just the latest version of Windows 8

    I think it's because of multiple DNS and servers that sometimes you're being redirected to different hosts.


    Anyway, anyone noticed decreased brightness at max level after last update ? Kinda irritating.
