  • Dictation now supports additional languages: Mandarin, Cantonese, Spanish, Korean, Canadian English, Canadian French, and Italian
  • Dictionary app now includes a French definition dictionary
  • Sina Weibo profile photos can now be added to Contacts 
OS X 10.8.2 also provides a number of software fixes. You can download OS X 10.8.2 by choosing Software Update from the Apple menu or directly here.

No Streetview is a big bummer. Also no transit directions.
