Makes rare backtrack on earlier code
Apple is pushing out two new patches to Mac users via Software Update. Of these the most critical is Java for OS X 2012-002, which actually replaces 2012-001, released earlier this week. Apple rarely outright removes an earlier update; 001 may have had a critical bug or security flaw that was somehow missed in a rush put out the code, which was meant to combat the Flashback Trojan.
A smaller patch, Digital Camera RAW Compatibility Update 3.12, adds just support for just a single extra camera to Aperture 3 and iPhoto '11, the Canon EOS 5D Mark III. Users must be running OS X 10.6.8 or later. The 5D Mark III began shipping to stores in late March.
