IE11 bumped to version 11.0.1 after Cumulative 'Patch Tuesday' Update

 

Before and after the update.

Internet Explorer 11 has seen its first major post-RTM update, bumping it up from version 11.0 to 11.0.1 with the installation of 'MS13-088: Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer'.

The update, which was delivered along with the Patch Tuesday offerings, included 17 bug fixes as well as separate general security updates, such as a patch for Adobe Flash Player.

Just a few of the changes include an "Update that disables Enhanced Protected Mode by default in Internet Explorer 11" which we covered yesterday, and "Internet Explorer loses HTTP connections when you close a webpage before you receive an XHR response" which is clearly a bug fix and not a security update. The full list can be seen here which also includes bug fixes for IE10 as well. 

The update applies to the Windows 8.1 Preview - which can still be used - and of course the shipped versions of Windows 8, 8.1, and Windows Server variants where IE11 can be installed.

Thanks for the tip SHoTTa35!

The only thing I noticed that doesn't work for me with the update is Yahoo! Games.
Cant figure out how to make it work either =[

Have you guys tried running the new google maps on ie11? It isnt smooth and the street view feature doesnt show any image. Im on win 8.1

All I know is...I updated on Tuesday and all my cookies that I clicked to remember the computer all disappeared.

I had to re-enter username and passwords on all my sites again.

I've had very slow performance on IE11, sites with flash seem particularly slow and unfortunately this update didn't improve matters. Not sure if it's IE11 in general, or combined with the 8.1 Windows update. May have to do a fresh install but not high on my priorities at the moment!

Not exactly newsworthy.
it is common that security updates fixing non-security issues as well increment the revision number.

Microsoft has done so since at least IE9.

I don't think you have authority to deem something newsworthy. This is in fact some good news to people having issues with IE and a heads up for anyone who was caught unawares.
