And, the Mac developer community sighed audibly with relief — the moving target that was OS X 10.9, barring an issue that causes the Earth shift off its poles, has now settled. Apple has shipped OS X Mavericks Gold Master to developers.
But, the goodness doesn’t end with OS X Mavericks GM, as Apple has also seeded Remote Desktop 3.7, OS X Server Preview 9 and Xcode 5.0.1 GM.
OS 10.9 Mavericks is expected to formally unveiled to the public at an October 15 Apple Event and ship by the end of the month.
