Member of the AppleVis Editorial Team

Apple today released OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 with a variety of enhancements, including VoiceOver improvements and a fix for the SSL security vulnerability that was discovered last week.

According to 9 to 5 Mac, the improvements in OS X 10.9.2 include FaceTime Audio in the FaceTime and Messages apps; contact blocking for FaceTime and iMessage; Mail app improvements; autofill fixes for Safari; audio fixes; VPN fixes; and VoiceOver fixes.

While 9 to 5 Mac reported that Apple made no mention of the fixed SSL vulnerability in the OS X 10.9.2 release notes, Mac Rumors (via AppleInsider) reported that the bug has been patched.

Additionally, Mac Rumors noted that the SSL vulnerability only affects users running OS X 10.9 Mavericks; OS X Lion and Mountain Lion are unaffected.

As the OS X 10.9.2 release notes include a mention of VoiceOver improvements, we would love to hear what you find; if you notice any bugs that have been fixed, please do let us know in the comments.
