MobileMe has not been the most friendly of apps.  Apple has gone to great lengths to please their customers by offering them a total of 90 free days onto their existing year if they experienced the many outages.  Apple has now posted a technical bulletin outlining the updates that MobileMe received in late September.  Apple is usually very "hush-hush" about their updates and it is nice to see them branch out and let us in on what has really changed.  The updates for MobileMe cover the entire spectrum of the product from stabilization to improving the user experience.  See more after the jump…

Apple is always working to improve MobileMe. Since MobileMe is primarily a server-side, or "cloud"-based, service, the MobileMe team can make improvements and push updates to MobileMe without any action being required of MobileMe customers. Since server-side updates are a bit more innocuous than a standard software update to Mac OS X or Microsoft Windows, it’s easy not to notice that updates are occurring.  Usually the only hint of these updates is that things just "work better".
