    Looks like Apple released Safari 3.2.1 in Software update. Usual "This update includes stability improvements and is recommended for all Safari users" line.

    Yay! MacRumors published one of my posts (Page 2, but it's something)! I feel special now.

    No blood is involved. Get over yourself and the uptime count.

    Don't be lazy, Apple. Please make a detail release note.

    Is this safe to install unlike the mess of 3.2?

    LOL!!

    Has fixed some issues I was having with Flash 10 - or, of course, something got reset when the new version was installed.

    Either way, my little girl will be happier as she can now play on this again which she hasn't been able to for a while!

    apparently there is no update for Safari for windows. Ever since the upgrade, Gmail has been crashing Safari.

    After installing the update, the computer restarts, and I get a flashing question mark on startup. Really odd. I have no idea what's going on...

    Haha. I was ready to install it too, and when I saw it needs a restart I was like WTF? I mean srsly, why for just a point update does it need to restart? Does it also update some kext or something? Sheesh.

    Even so, I'd do it, but:

    • I'm encoding video for my iPhone

    and

    • If what AlexH says is true, I don't want to do it. A flashing ? mark at boot up is not good. I mean, I know how to fix it when it's like that (it generally means that somehow the bootstrap got messed up and the computer doesn't see the OS X system folder. Simply boot up from your Mac OS X DVD, or another computer, and set the Startup Disk properly).

    After a few minutes of the flashing ? mark, I powered down and started it back up. It booted up correctly and went right into OS X. I haven't noticed anymore odd behavior. I'm going to reboot and make sure it's ok...

    No Problems With Safari

    So far I have had no problems with Safari.

    Oh, I just realized I am running Safari 4 Developer Preview on my MacBook Pro. No updates to that yetl

    Okay. Keep us posted!

    Haha. Lucky. I can't wait for Safari 4 to go prime time. I know I could sign up for ADC and get the beta, but I'd rather not. Heh.

    I wonder if the updates supersede the Safari 4 Beta?:confused:

    Well, everything seems to be fine. I rebooted normally, safari seems to be acting ok, no weirdness or instability, just a brief scare! :eek: :D

    It's not going to make addons not crash Safari, and it's not going to fix the CFNetwork crash that turned up in one of the other threads.

    It should, however, fix another crash or two. Looking at the webkit changelog it looks like the one webkit-side fix is for a quicktime related crash. There might be other ones fixes in the non-opensource part of Safari, I don't have access to that.

    Updated...no discernible changes. But Safari is now just 8mb in size after stripping UB & Languages

    Most of Safari is in WebKit.framework, of course...

    When Software Update popped up and asked if I wanted to "Install & Restart", it restarted without installing the update. :confused: I went back and manually checked for updates and told it to install, then it actually did install. No problems with the update.
