This release fixes a single bug. It is recommended for all users. Note that the OS X Supplemental Update is required for correct operation on both OS X 10.8.2 and OS X 10.7.5, so please ensure your system is fully up-to-date before installing this release.

System requirements

This release is tested and supported on the following platforms:

Defects fixed

  • Due to limitations with the OS X security sandbox, backups are no longer made when modifying files added individually to the Choose files and folders to search table. In the previous release, the attempt to make such backups failed with an error. Backups continue to be made (if the appropriate preference is enabled) when modifying files found under folders added to the Choose files and folders to search table.
