Apple Releases OS X Lion 10.7.4 Update
Wednesday, May 9, 2012
Posted by: Staff

Apple has released the OS X Lion 10.7.4 Update via their Software Update Utility and website for direct download. According to the company, this 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 including fixes that:

- Resolve an issue in which the "Reopen windows when logging back in" setting is always enabled.
- Improve compatibility with certain British third-party USB keyboards.
- Addresses permission issues that may be caused if you use the Get Info inspector function "Apply to enclosed items…" on your home directory.
- Improve Internet sharing of PPPoE connections.
- Improve using a proxy auto-configuration (PAC) file.
- Address an issue that may prevent files from being saved to an SMB server.
- Improve printing to an SMB print queue.
- Improve performance when connecting to a WebDAV server.
- Enable automatic login for NIS accounts.
- Include RAW image compatibility for additional digital cameras.
- Improve the reliability of binding and logging into Active Directory accounts.

The OS X Lion 10.7.4 Update weighs in at 692.68MB and requires OS X Lion 10.7.3. Apple also released a Combo update for users looking to update from earlier versions of Lion.

I bet somewhere Cypher and JB are smiling with the better support UK boards. Wink

No problems here with the update. I wonder if it will be the last one released before Mountain Lion? Our 10.6.8 type finale.

I'm glad they finally fixed the reopen windows feature. It's been driving me crazy since the beginning.

I upgraded two minis and an iMac this morning without incident. For those running Snow Leopard, a security update for it was issued.

It doesn't sound like there have been as many issues as the last update (10.7.3), but I'm still going to wait a couple days. These updates have really become less automatic to me. I would probably be more inclined to update if I were using Filevault though.

I bet there will be at least one more update before ML is released.

Is Safari 5.1.7 included in Lion 10.7.4? I don't see it showing up in SU as a standalone update.

Safari 5.1.7 becomes available after you do the Lion update.

Shucks. I was hoping you could update Safari without going to 10.7.4. Thanks for the reply though.

I just checked Apple's website where Safari 5.1.7 is available for download. Unfortunately, it states there that it requires Lion 10.7.4 or Snow Leopard 10.6.8 plus Security Update 2012-002.

I can confirm I'm running Safari 5.1.7 (but I do have Snow Leopard 10.6.8 plus Security Update 2012-002).

It's also strange because the 10.7.4 update actually comes with Safari 5.1.6. I went ahead and updated everything though. It just doesn't seem like this is a good time to let security-based updates slide on by.
