OS X Lion 10.7.5 Update Available, Includes Bug & Wi-Fi Fixes, Adds GateKeeper
OS X Lion 10.7.5 has been released alongside iOS 6 and OS X 10.8.2. For those still using OS X Lion, the update brings the Gatekeeper security feature to Lion, fixes a variety of common bugs, resolves a wifi issue with iMacs, and is said to generally improve the stability of OS X.
OS X 10.7.5 can be downloaded through Software Update via the Apple menu.
The release notes as shown in Software Update are below:
The 10.7.5 update is recommended for all OS X Lion users and includes general operating system fixes that improve the stability, compatibility and security of your Mac. It also includes Gatekeeper, a new security feature that helps you keep your Mac safe from malicious software by giving you more control over what apps are installed on your Mac.
The 10.7.5 update also includes fixes that:
Resolve an issue where icons in Launchpad may get rearranged after a restart
Improve Wi-Fi reliability for iMac (Late 2009 and newer)
Resolve an issue using Spotlight to search an SMB server
Improve compatibility connecting to Active Directory servers
A little off topic here, but if you’re still on Lion you should really consider upgrading to Mountain Lion. 10.8 is heaps and bounds better, brings back much-loved features that Lion lost, and is certainly worth the easy $20 upgrade.
