OS X 10.8.4 12E47 Seeded to Devs
Tuesday came, went and left the developer community with a fresh interim Mountain Lion beta release. Apple has seeded OS X 10.8.4 12E47, which arrives with “no known issues” and request for devs to focus their attention on Safari, Wi-Fi and Graphics. However, some interesting new details have slipped out.
If you could dig deep enough, buried somewhere in the current OS X usage by version data, you would find people using OS X 10.8.4 and even OS X 10.9. Although little is known about Apple’s next big desktop OS release, additional information about the next interim Mountain Lion update is trickling out.
It’s widely accepted that 802.11ac, or gigabit Wi-Fi, has been baked into OS X 10.8.4. Further, another source that’s crawled around inside developer betas has also found Geforce GTX TITAN drivers.
OS X 10.8.4: Updated Apps
Quoting unnamed sources familiar with OS X 10.8.4, the Fairer Platform has previously reported that Mail 6.5 is among the new items, though no details about what has changed are available. Likewise, Safari 6.0.5.
An ongoing issue with OS X 10.8.4 in particular and Mountain Lion in general, something users self-report often in forums, is poor/unreliable graphic driver performance — Apple has asked developers to focus on graphics in the current beta, as well as previous interim ML updates.
