many new features, as well as some security fixes.
And not just a couple security fixes, several of them. All told, nine security fixes ranging from problems in Mac OS X applications such as finder, to
freely available applications such as OpenSSH.

upgrade, a $129 outlay.
In the end, this turned out to be untrue. Apple assured customers that the fixes would be back-ported, and would be available for all other currently
supported operating systems.
