Apple just released OS X 10.8.4, the latest version of its operating system that recently left beta. The update includes several small fixes, such as a problem that stopped FaceTime calls to non-U.S. phone numbers, scheduling problems with Boot Camp and sleep mode and the order in which iMessages were ordered. It also includes Safari 6.0.5, however, with increased stability among sites that feature games or chat options.

Here’s a full list of the changes, as provided by MacRumors:

 Compatibility improvements when connecting to certain enterprise Wi-Fi networks
– Microsoft Exchange compatibility improvements in Calendar
– A fix for an issue that prevented FaceTime calls to non-U.S. phone numbers
– A fix for an issue that may prevent scheduled sleep after using Boot Camp
– Improves VoiceOver compatibility with text in PDF documents
– Includes Safari 6.0.5, which improves stability for some websites with chat features and games
– A fix for an issue that may cause iMessages to display out of order in Messages
– Resolves an issue in which Calendars Birthdays may appear incorrectly in certain time zones
– A fix for an issue that may prevent the desktop background picture from being preserved after restart
– A fix for an issue that may prevent documents from being saved to a server using SMB
– Addresses an issue that may prevent certain files from opening after copied to a volume named “Home”
– A fix for an issue that may prevent changes to files made over NFS from displaying
– Resolves an issue saving files to an Xsan volume from certain applications
– Improves Active Directory log-in performance, especially for cached accounts or when using a .local domain
– Improves OpenDirectory data replication

While we always love a fresh update that fixes bugs and offers new features, we hope Apple has some new and larger things regarding OS X next week during WWDC 2013.
