Apple has released OS X 10.9.1 to Mac users - the first major update to Mavericks since it was released in October

The update stays away from new features, and instead, focuses on fixing bugs.

OS X 10.9.1 brings improved support for Gmail in OS X Mail, 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, and updates Shared Links periodically when open in the Safari Sidebar.

In November, Apple released a small, but crucial, update to address issues for Gmail users. Apple told Pocket-lint in October that API changes were implemented into Mail upon Gmail's request, and these changes are causing the new Apple Mail behaviour in OS X Mavericks. Monday's OS X 10.9.1 brings more fixes to address the issue.

It is available to download from the Mac App Store.
