23 July 2013 868 views No Comment

You can call it OS X 10.9 13A524d or Developer Preview 4, but it's all the same and, like other recent Mavericks betas, not a heckuva lot is new

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.

And, there are a number of small changes in OS X 10.9 13A524d proper, including the ability to post to LinkedIn via Notification Center, a slightly updated Time Machine icon and the ability to scroll pages/windows in Mission Control.

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

iBooks still hasn’t shown up yet — if you’ve been holding your breath, stop.
