Microsoft has just rolled out Windows 8.1 Update 2 (August update) with a handful of minor enhancements and bug-fixes. The August update (KB2975719) is currently listed under optional updates in "Windows Update", and brings a few tweaks such as Precision Touchpad improvements, Miracast Receive and Minimise Login Prompts for SharePoint Online.
List of new features (courtesy of Windows blog):

  • Precision touchpad improvements – it adds three new end-user settings: Leave touch pad on when a mouse is connected; allow right-clicks on the touchpad; double-tap and drag.
  • Miracast Receive – it exposes a set of Wi-Fi direct APIs for Independent Hardware Vendor (IHV) drivers or OEM drivers to develop Windows 32-bit applications that run on all supported x86-based or x64-based versions of Windows 8.1, enabling the computer as a Miracast receiver.
  • Minimizing login prompts for SharePoint Online – it reduces the number of prompts with federated use in accessing SharePoint Online sites. If you select the "Keep me signed in" check box when you log on for the first time, you will not see prompts for successive access to that SharePoint Online site.

For downloading, launch 'Windows Update' and look for KB2975719 in the optional updates.
