It improves the stability, compatibility, and security and includes:

  • Improved support for Gmail in OS X Mail, and fixes for users with custom Gmail settings
  • Improves the reliability of Smart Mailboxes and search in Mail
  • Fixes an issue that prevented contact groups from working properly in Mail
  • Resolves an issue that prevented VoiceOver from speaking sentences that contain emoji
  • Fixes an issue that prevented iLife and iWork apps from updating on non-English systems
  • Addresses an issue that may cause multiple prompts to unlock “Local items” keychain
  • Addresses an issue that may cause Japanese keyboards to retain a previously used language
  • Includes Safari 7.0.1
    • Fixes an issue that could cause Safari to become unresponsive when filling out forms on fedex.com, stubhub.com, and other websites
    • Improves Credit Card Autofill compatibility with websites
    • Improves VoiceOver compatibility with facebook.com
    • Updates Shared Links periodically when open in the Safari Sidebar

So far, not too much about security. But, there is more.

Apple also released a special KB about the Safari 7.0.1 security issues as well which is described as CVE-2013-5227.

  • Impact: User credentials may be disclosed to an unexpected site via autofill

Description: Safari may have autofilled user names and passwords into a subframe from a different domain than the main frame. This issue was addressed through improved origin tracking.

 

If you are a Safari user, it is recommended to install this update immediately.

The updates can be downloaded and installed using Software Update, or from Apple Downloads.
