Apple Seeds OS X 10.8.4 12E40
Yesterday was Tuesday and that means another interim Mountain Lion update beta has arrived. Changes, fun and excitement baked into that flaky, buttery crust? Perhaps, yet Apple says that OS X 10.8.4 12E40 ships with no known issues and developers are being asked to focus on the same three issues — Wi-Fi, Graphics Drivers and Safari — as last week and the week before that and…
OS X 10.8.4 12E40 tips the scales at more than 360MB (delta) and 820MB (combo). Part of that bulk is taken up by Safari 6.0.5 and Mail 6.5 — both are new, but no public info is available about what kind of filling has baked in.
Of course, there is the one palpably interesting thing we do know about OS X 10.8.4 — 802.11ac, a.k.a. Gigabit Wi-Fi, likely will be part of the eventual OS X 10.8.4 release.
In related news, although Cupertino and its code monkeys are still silent on the subject, we finally have OS X 10.9 rumors, which is expected to be introduced at WWDC and feature deeper still iOS-ification with an emphasis on pleasing power users.
And, in case you hadn’t heard, WWDC tickets went on sale and, two minutes later, sold out.
