Late Thursday, Apple released supplemental updates for both its Mac OS X 10.7.5 (Lion) and OS X 10.8.2 (Mountain Lion) operating systems.

– Resolves an issue that may cause Time Machine backups to take a very long time to complete.

– Addresses an issue that prevents certain applications signed with a Developer ID from launching.

– The Supplemental Update is recommended if you installed the Mac OS X Lion v10.7.5 Update (build 11G56).

The OS X 10.8.2 Supplemental Update 1.0 fix, a 27.9 megabyte download, offers the following fixes and changes:

– Resolves an issue that may cause certain Japanese characters to appear incorrectly in Mail.

– Allows Safari to access secure sites when parental controls are enabled.

– Addresses an issue that may prevent systems with more than 64 GB of RAM from starting up.

– Resolves an issue that may cause DVD Player to unexpectedly quit.

The updates can be found, downloaded and installed via Mac OS X’s built-in Software Update feature and require Mac OS X 10.7.5 and Mac OS X 10.8.2 to install and run, respectively.
