Apple releases the fourth OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 beta with build 13C48 to registered developers. This comes a week after the third beta update for the free OS X Mavericks. Apple also suggests the update will be made public in the near future.
Registered developers can obtain the beta release via the Mac Dev Center or by using the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store. The beta release basically focuses on Mail, Messages, Graphics drivers, VoiceOver, VPN services and Server Message Block (SMB2).
Apple had received several complaints regarding the Mail and Message service in the new OS X Mavericks. Since then, Apple has been focusing on getting that right and unfortunately, the problem still stands in this newer beta release but major aspects of it are resolved.
Apple also focuses the developers to test services like the SMB2, graphics drivers, VoiceOver and VPN with enhanced functionality provided in the latest beta.
Reports also suggest Apple would made the update public in a week or so. Probably, this decision would depend upon the developer’s reviews and tests regarding the bug fixes in major applications.
OS X Mavericks’ performance in the market is much better than its predecessors. Its growth rate would soon make it the most widely used Mac around.
While most of the Mac users use the OS X Mountain Lion, the general trend will soon shift to Mavericks because it is free and much better than its predecessor in many ways. Apple though needs to eradicate the several bugs currently residing in the OS.
Registered developers can get their Mac updated using the Software Update or the Mac Dev Center. [Download Here]
