OS X 10.9.4 Update Info/Downloads (includes Safari 7.0.5):
Clip from the about 10.9.4 doc, which also has a reminder to backup before updating and on possible issues with 3rd party addons:

"The OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 Update is recommended for all Mavericks users. It improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac. This update:
  • Fixes an issue that prevented some Macs from automatically connecting to known Wi-Fi networks
  • Fixes issue causing the background or Apple logo to appear incorrectly on startup
  • Improves the reliability of waking from sleep
  • Includes Safari 7.0.5

See below for Apple docs on Security fixes in OS X v10.9.4, Safari 7.0.5 and more. Build after update is 13E28.

FYI: Updating to OS X 10.9.4 (via SU) disabled the SSD TRIM support mod I'd done in OS X 10.9.3. (See earlier notes. Terminal commands I used before didn't work in OS X 10.9.4. Article now updated with TRIM mod commands for OS X 10.9.4.) WiFi internet connection was not working on the first reboot but OK after shutdown/restart. (Update process on a 2012 mini took about 10 minutes for 2 stage update.)

Saw some mixed early reports on fixes for multiple display problems (especially 3 or more) some Mac Pro owners had with OS X 10.9.3. Hopefully most are fixed.

Security Update 2014-003 for OS X Lion/Lion Server/Mountain Lion:
See docs below for more info. (D/L pages have none basically.)
