Other changes include improved AFP file transfer performance over 802.11ac Wi-Fi and resolution for an issue that may prevent a screen saver from starting automatically.

As usual, to download and install the update, click the Apple menu and choose Software Update to check for the latest Apple software via the Mac App Store, including this update.
