The new release also includes Safari 6.0.3 which itself addresses a number of fixes and adds a number of performance improvements.  Some of these are: improved scrolling on Facebook and while zoomed in on a webpage, improved performance on web pages with plug-in content, and a fix for issue that could prevent Safari from restoring the last position on a webpage.
