  • Photos should now recognise AVCHD media from more cameras,
  • Mail users should now be able to move a message from Gmail to another account.

Safari is updated to version 11.1.2, with security fixes including a couple of spoofing vulnerabilities. Further details of fixes to Safari are here.

The list of security fixes is quite short. Among those are: a memory corruption bug in APFS; one kernel bug with Lazy FP state, and a couple of bugs in libxpc.

In El Capitan and Sierra, there are few security fixes, including: a malicious app could break out of its sandbox (CoreCrypto), and a Sierra bug in which DesktopServices could reveal sensitive user info. However, yet again Apple seems to have replaced large numbers of files in /Library and /System/Library, including pretty well all extensions, at least in Sierra.

Full details of security fixes are here.

For most recent Mac models, these updates bring EFI firmware updates too. I have now updated my listing of EFI firmware versions to those current in 10.13.6.
