OS X Mavericks may be on the horizon, but don’t think we’re done with Mountain Lion quite yet. Late on Thursday, Apple released OS X 10.8.5 Supplemental Update 1.0, along with iTunes 11.1.1.

The Supplemental Update fixes a few issues with Mountain Lion, including a problem that might prevent some apps from using the FaceTime HD camera when running on a mid-2013 MacBook Air. Also patched are a pair of sleep issues: one where external drives were ejected after the computer went to sleep, and another where HDMI audio wouldn’t work right after the computer was woken up. Finally, there’s also a fix for problems with certain USB Bluetooth adapters.

Other than its lovely mono-numeric version number, iTunes 11.1.1 fixes a problem where podcasts were deleted, patches an issue where iTunes Extras displayed incorrectly, and improves stability. We could all use a little improved stability in our lives, right?

Both updates are, as of this writing, available via Software Update on eligible computers.
