Revised (Again) macOS 10.14.6 Supplemental Update Released
On Sept. 26th, Apple again revised the macOS Mojave 10.14.6 Supplemental Update (originally released August 1st, then revised August 26th, and now revised again for "Supplemental update 2" security fixes). The Aug. 26th revised update include new bug fixes, and a security fix. (The Sept. 26th version has another security fix.) After installation the Sept. 26th update is macOS Mojave 10.14.6 build 18G103. What follows is info from the August 26th revised download page list of changes. (The Sept. 26th update removed that change info - left here for reference.)
"macOS 10.14.6 Supplemental Update (Aug. 26, 2019 version)
This update contains bug fixes that improve the stability, performance, and security of your Mac, and is recommended for all users. This update:

  • Resolves an issue that may cause certain Mac notebooks to shut down during sleep
  • Fixes an issue that may degrade performance when working with very large files
  • Addresses an issue that may prevent Pages, Keynote, Numbers, iMovie, and GarageBand from updating "
  • The download page now lists the size as 1.26 GB. (Aug. 1st release listed 954.8 MB.) Apple also posted a new article About the security content of macOS Mojave 10.14.6 Supplemental Update today. (The original Aug. 1st update had none.)

    FYI: Apple revised the macOS 10.14.6 Update (delta and combo) download pages, they're now dated August 26th. (They were originally posted July 22nd.) I assume this is to add the 10.14.6 Supplemental Update.
