The parade of Apple updates continue on Monday. Along with updates for iOS, watchOS, tvOS, and iTunes, Apple released OS X El Capitan Update 10.11.5.
According to the release notes, the update includes under-the-hood fixes. Specifically:
• Fixes an issue where applying a configuration profile to set allowSpotlightInternetResults to False would cause Spotlight to use large amounts of CPU time.
• Fixes an issue where applying a configuration profile to set ShutDownDisabledWhileLoggedIn to True would have no effect.
• Fixes an issue where only a single NetBoot image would appear in the Startup Disk pane of System Preferences, even if multiple NetBoot images were configured on the server.
