OS X 10.9 Developer Preview 4 Seeded, Life Goes On
Although the Apple Developer Website outage continues, development moves ahead nonetheless. That said, whether you call it OS X 10.9 13A524d or Developer Preview 4, it’s all the same and, like other recent Mavericks betas, not a heckuva lot is new.
If you haven’t fired up the Mac App Store’s Software Update recently, in addition to OS X 10.9 Developer Preview 4, you will likely find the Mavericks Developer Preview Recovery Partition and an update of the Samantha (a.k.a. Siri) voice.
There are, of course, other the improved voices in OS X Mavericks, including Ava and Allison.

As with previous Mavericks betas, the known issues include problems with Maps, as well as file handing in Aperture and Photoshop.
