Geeze Louise — enough with the betas already! Well, if that was true, OS X 10.9.2 would already be available. However, Apple’s software simians have pushed yet another Mavericks update developer seed to Mac developers and, wait for it, no known issues.

The only visible differences between last week’s OS X 10.9.2 [13C53] and last night’s OS X 10.9.2 [13C59] are build numbers.

What’s coming…

As with previous developer seeds, Apple is asking folks to focus their testing on Mail, Messages, Graphic Drivers, VoiceOver, VPN and FaceTime Audio.

Of those things, FaceTime Audio calling is a new feature, which is available within FaceTime and Messages. Another new feature is the ability to block people in both FaceTime and Messages.

On the bug fix side, Mavericks Mail’s well documented issues with Gmail IMAP are getting attention. So, too, are graphics drivers — updated drivers in OS X 10.9.2 — and VPN.

Safari 7.0.2 and Mail 7.2 are bundled with OS X 10.9.2 and are thought to contain security patches and bug fixes only — no new features.

As with all beta software, features, fixes and functionality can differ significantly from final code. Mileage could vary significantly between the betas and the publicly released version of OS X 10.9.2.

As with previous developer seeds, Apple is asking folks to focus their testing on Mail, Messages, Graphic Drivers, VoiceOver, VPN and FaceTime Audio.

As noted in the last two OS X 10.9.2 beta reports — stick a fork in it not once but twice — if past is prologue, I will be wrong again. That said, OS X 10.9.2 could arrive just about any time now… or now… how about… now…
