Mac OS X 10.1.4 Is Out!

Mac OS X 10.1.4 Is Out!

by , 5:45 PM EDT, April 17th, 2002

Apple has just released its latest version of Mac OS X, moving the version up to 10.1.4. According to Apple's Release notes:

Version 10.1.4 delivers improved networking, security, and additional disc recording device support. Specific enhancements include:

  • Disc Recording Devices:
    • Updated and new support for Fast 10 SCSI drives, including the Pioneer 201 drive.
    • Expanded support for SmartDisk, EZQuest, and LaCie disc recording devices.
  • Networking Improvements:
    • Dial-up connections over PPP are more reliable and system responsiveness has been improved.
    • Significant improvement to file searching on local and remote volumes.
    • Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) services can be browsed on networks with 3Com routers.
  • Security Update:
    • BSD-based TCP/IP connections now check and block broadcast or multicast IP destination addresses.

You can get the the latest update to Mac OS X via Software Update.

The Mac Observer Spin:

This looks like it should be a nice little speed-up, at least for some areas of Mac OS X. Drop us a line in the comments below and let us know if you've noticed any differences between it and 10.1.3.
