Apple Pushes OS X 10.9.3 13D61, Safari 7.0.4 Seed 1 to Devs
Apple’s mantra with its Mavericks update program is try, try again. Last night, the company pushed OS X 10.9.3 13D61 to developers, which is already the tenth seed? Interestingly, AppleCare employees were seeded 13D62.
So, go ahead, slap me for saying it — OS X 10.9.3 is due for public release any day now.
Also unchanged are the testing focus areas: Graphics Drivers, Audio, Mail, Contacts + Calendar sync over USB in iTunes and Safari. iTunes 11.1.6b5 and its iThing USB syncing remains unchanged, as well.
And, as far as new, aside from the build numbers, the only new things 13D61 appears to be Safari 7.0.4. Previous OS X 10.9.3 seeds included Safari 7.0.3, which shipped previously as a stand-alone update to the public.
Safari 7.0.4 will be available for Mavericks and Mountain Lion, while Safari 6.1.4 for Lion is also coming.
OS X 10.9.3 will also deliver support for pixel doubling scaling (ie Retina) output for late-2013 MacBook Pro with Retina Display models. Apple has also added support for high frame rate QuickTime and QuickLook slow-motion playback.
