Apple just pushed out a beefy OS X update, so third-party Mac updates will soon be flowing freely. That said, if you just updated to OS X 10.8.3 and your Mac’s running a bit slow, there’s a very good chance that Mountain Lion Cache Cleaner can help.

Northern Softworks Mountain Lion Cache
Cleaner 7.0.6
(download) is OS X 10.8.3 compatible, but there’s more in this release than just that:

— Fixes a reported issue with MLCC’s Menu Bar item
— Adds the ability to show system info at login
— Updates MLCC for OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion
— Minor optimizations and improvements

A full Mountain Lion Cache Cleaner license can be purchased on Amazon’s Mac Download Store for $9.99 — I use and highly recommend this app.

Mac Updates: Unexpected Utility

For Retina MacBook Pro owners, one of the happy and unexpected byproducts of the just released OS X 10.8.3 is an additional 20 minutes of battery time. However, Apple has more goodness to share in the form of the MacBook Pro Retina SMC Update v1.1 (download), which resolves a “rare issue” (Ed — Aren’t they all?) where users may experience slow frame rates when playing graphics-intensive games on the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display. Additionally, it includes bug fixes for Power Nap, wake from sleep and fan control.

Last up, Koingo Software has delivered AirRadar 2.3 (release notes, Mac App Store, $19.99), which delivers a single bug fix. Why mention it? AirRadar is an exceptionally useful utility if you need to sort out wi-fi network availability and performance — very, very useful and there is fully functional 15-day trial.
