In addition to iOS 7.1.2, Apple has issued the final version of OS X 10.9.4 via Mavericks' Software Update feature. Like its sibling, v10.9.4 deals exclusively with bugfixes. It solves a glitch preventing Macs from automatically connecting to recognized Wi-Fi networks, as well as the reliability of waking a computer from sleep mode.

Bundled with the update is Safari 7.0.5, a new version of Apple's browser software. 10.9.4 may be the last (or second-to-last) major update for Mavericks, since OS X Yosemite is due sometime this fall, presumably in September or October.

Gosh, I hope they finally got to the core of the WiFi connection after wake with Bluetooth enabled bug. They've been releasing fixes for that since like 2006.

Safari 7.0.5 still doesn't include the WebKit Javascript LLVM - it's still only 66% of the speed of the June 19 nightly build. Looks like we wait for Yosemite for this boost.
Just sayin'

Instead of using Software Update, I did a google search for "Mavericks V10.9.4 Combo Update", and I got at least one "hit". It is downloading as I write this. I have always preferred the Combo update.

It is from Apple's site. I actually tried the same phrase for a search on Apple's site, but no luck. google was obviously better!
