Today Apple released 10.8.3, the third major update to OS X Mountain Lion. To eliminate any potential issues, we generally recommend to update any supported systems using the standalone combo installer available from Apple.com, and not the built-in Software Update.


Be sure to back up any important data, and if possible clone your hard drive before applying the update. If you have any issues post-update, boot using UniBeast.

The link to the combo update took me to 10.8.2's. I suppose it's going to be a little while before we see the new combo update. But, for whoever can't wait, you can just update via the App Store.
