Apple has released OS X 10.8.4 for Mac computers today, and it fixes a host of things, including an annoying bug which caused iMessages to come in out of order in the Messages app.
There are a host of other improvements including better Microsoft Exchange support in calendar, a slightly newer version of Safari (6.0.5) and a fix for a bug that prevented Facetime calls to international numbers.
