Apple updates Mac OS X Server to 2.2.1 with new features and old bug fixes

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Apple tonight quietly updated Mac Mountain Lion OSX Server to version 2.2.1. The once stand-alone $500+ OS is now just an app, and that app is distributed through the Mac App Store for a very reasonable $19.99.

Today’s update includes some updates around the Caching Server to allow Mac Apps to cache locally. Time Machine service monitoring also becomes more robust, while Wiki Server now supports Macs with Retina displays. Apple also includes the ability to use Active Directory groups within Profile Manager and an improved Centralized Certificate management interface.

The fixes are in for Profile manager deleting apps, SSL errors causing setup failures, and some “timely” fixes for upgrading from Lion Server.

More information on the update can be found here.
