New in OS X 10.8.4: WiFi Compatibility; FaceTime Fix, 802.11ac, More

Features in OS X 10.8.4:
— 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
— Improved VoiceOver compatibility with text in PDF documents
— Includes Safari 6.0.5
Known scuttlebutt also includes the existence of 802.11ac (a.k.a. gigabit wifi) references in OS X 10.8.4, as well as Geforce GTX TITAN drivers — neither of which are guarantied to be part of the final product.
