Apple on Monday officially begin rolling out OS X 10.9.1, introducing some optimizations and minor bug fixes, including fixes to its Mail app. It’s been quite awhile since we saw anything major from Apple regarding Mavericks, which launched for free back in October. Today’s improvements—in addition to better Gmail performance in Mail—include fixes to Smart Mailboxes, an updates to Shared Links in Safari, better VoiceOver reliability and more. The Cupertino company previously introduced other Mail fixes as its own update early last month.

You can download the update from the Mac App Store now. The most recent beta versions was seeded to AppleCare employees earlier this month should you have any questions in an actual Apple store. Otherwise, if you’ve experienced any issues the company mentions in its changelog, your time has come. If you own a 2013 MacBook Pro with Retina display, you’ll also get some system specific enhancements meant for your machine.

This update includes the following fixes:

  • Improved support for Gmail in OS X Mail, and fixes for users with custom Gmail settings
  • Improves the reliability of Smart Mailboxes and search in Mail
  • Fixes an issue that prevented contact groups from working properly in Mail
  • Resolves an issue that prevented VoiceOver from speaking sentences that contain emoji
  • Updates Shared Links periodically when open in the Safari Sidebar
