Asus PCE-AC68 802.11ac PCIe card in 2008 Mac Pro running OS X 10.10.3
Updated the page on Mac/OS X compatible 802.11ac adapters (and some combo AC WiFi/BT4.0 upgrades) with another follow-up from a 2008 Mac Pro owner using an ASUS PCE-AC68 802.11ac PCIe card with OS X 10.10.3. (Past posts include PCIe, mPCIe and USB adapters with info on OS X drivers if required.)
D/L page for Nvidia Graphics Driver 346.01.02f02 for OS X 10.10.3 (14D136)
(This is the same driver version that was posted as a direct D/L link last week)
Nvidia download page for Graphics driver 346.01.02f02 for OS X 10.10.3 build 14D136. (The Build after installing OS X 10.10.3 Supplemental Update 1.0.) Here's a clip from the main D/L page tab (other than version info, just typical boilerplate).
"New in Release 346.01.02f02
  • Graphics driver updated for OS X Yosemite 10.10.3 (14D136)
  • Contains performance improvements and bug fixes for a wide range of applications.
  • Includes NVIDIA Driver Manager preference pane."
  • (As of post date current CUDA version is 7.0.36 from April 9th.)

    Apple Events Server Update for OS X Snow Leopard and OS X Lion
    Saw these two update download pages at Apple (April 22nd), which seemed odd as they've not released updates for OS X 10.6.x for some time and the description on both download pages says:
    "Fixes an issue where remote Apple Events were disabled by Security Update 2015-002."

    (Security Update 2015-002 was for OS X 10.8.5, 10.9.5 and 10.10.2.)

    As of post time not seen any mention of these anywhere else yet. (And not installed it.)
