Apple is distributing new pre-release builds of iTunes, Safari, Java, and the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295427==http://www.macnn.com/articles/13/09/24/fixes.issues.with.macbook.air.sleep.other.componen ts/" rel='nofollow'>OS X 10.8.5 Supplemental Update</a> amongst employees, a report says. The Supplemental Update is <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/295428==http://9to5mac.com/2013/10/02/new-os-x-10-8-5-itunes-safari-builds-seeded-internally-as-releases-near/" rel='nofollow'>said</a> to have reached build 12F45, as opposed to the 12F42 code seen during an initial leak. Safari 6.1 is meanwhile up to build 537A134.<br />
The Supplemental Update is slated to deal with problems related to external drives, HDMI audio, USB Bluetooth adapters, and the FaceTime HD camera on the MacBook Air. Safari 6.1 -- which has already been available to developers for some time -- brings the Mountain Lion version of Safari up to par with the one in OS X Mavericks. Some features include Shared Links, a new sidebar, better power consumption, third-party data blocking, and more search engine options for Russian users. iTunes 11.1.1 solves glitches with stability, deleted podcasts, and the display of iTunes Extras.
