Apple may release OS X Mavericks later this fall. But, in the meanwhile, the company needs to fix the bugs in Mountain Lion.  And Apple has done it with the release of OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.5, enhancing stability and security.

Macworld says that the update of Mountain Lion has fixed several bugs, including issues with mail displaying messages and automatically starting screen saver. An issue of smart cards unlocking preference panes has also been fixed. The new version enables users to enjoy improved AFP file transfer performance over 802.11ac Wi-Fi.

Apple states that the recently released 10.8.5 version of Mountain Lion has improved the reliability of transferring large files over the ethernet. The updated version has also strengthened the reliability of Xsan and enhances the performance for authenticating an Open Directory server.

In the meanwhile, security updates for Snow Leopard, Snow Leopard Server, Lion and Lion Server have also been released. You can find all the updates on Apple’s download page.
