Apple Closes OS X 10.8.4 Seed Project Indicating an Imminent Release
Apple recently sent a notice to developers stating that it will be closing the OS X Software Update 10.8.4 seed project, suggesting a final version of the maintenance update is closer to release. People who have seen the emailed notice believe that the public release of OS X 10.8.4 is around the corner, possibly at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference coming up on June 10.
Along with thanking participants who contributed to the testing, Apple noted the discussion board and Project Area dedicated to the seeding initiative will be shut down following scheduled infrastructure maintenance this weekend. No information was released as to the public release date.
Although Apple has yet to release a Gold Master of 10.8.4, signaling an imminent release of the software update, the company most recently seeded the eighth beta version of the software just last week. Apple has announced that it will be showing off next generation versions of OS X and iOS at WWDC 2013 but many continue to anticipate new hardware like a refreshed MacBook lineup featuring Intel’s latest Haswell processors.
Ultimately, we’ll just have to wait and be patient to find out what’s true and what’s not.
