– Improve compatibility when connecting to a Microsoft Exchange server in Mail.

– Address an issue playing audio through a Thunderbolt display.

– Resolve an issue that could prevent iMessages from being sent.

– Address an issue that could cause the system to become unresponsive when using Pinyin input.

– Improve 802.1X authentication with Active Directory credentials.

OS X 10.8.1 requires an Intel-based Mac running OS X 10.8 to install and run, the update itself being attainable by using OS X’s Software Update feature.
