Apple has finally released the OS X 10.8.2 final version in the public, after testing the major update of Mountain Lion OS X 10.8.x for many days with the developers only. Apple leaked out the actual update to developers a long time ago, but still the general public users were missing the upcoming taste that was limited to developers to test deeply before going public. Undoubtedly, OS X 10.8.2 is not just a minor update to OS X 10.8.1 Mountain Lion. It contains many new features and bug fixes including the battery performance issue with older and newer generation MacBook Pro machines, and the introduction of Facebook Integration for public in OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2
