Apple today released Mac OS X 10.1.4. The update is available through the Software Update pane of System Preferences.
Changes to Mac OS X 10.1.4 include improved network, security and additional disc recording device support, according to Apple. The software has updated support for Fast 10 SCSI drives, including the Pioneer 201 mechanism. Support has been expanded for disc recording products from SmartDisk, EZQuest and LaCie as well.
Networking improvements include enhancements for PPP-based dialup connections, which Apple said have resulted in better reliability and improved system response. File searching on local and remote volumes has been improved, and Apple Filing Protocol (AFP) services can now be browsed on networks with 3Com routers.
Last, a security update now enables BSD-based TCP/IP connections to check and block broadcast or multicast IP destination addresses.
The 2.2MB update is available now.
