Apple Seeds the Sixth OS X 10.9.2 Mavericks Beta to its Developers
Keeping to its weekly beta update schedule, Apple recently seeded the sixth OS X 10.9.2 Mavericks beta to developers with no significant changes. With the latest beta version, build 13C59, Apple asked developers to focus on Mail, Messages and Graphics Drivers once again according to people who have seen the most recent release.
Continuing from its previous build, the focus areas include SMB2, Mail, Messages, Graphics Drivers, VoiceOver and VPN. Mavericks’ messaging functions, especially Mail, have been the source of trouble since the OS originally launched in October. This was seen as affected users saw Gmail compatibility issues and erratic Smart Mailbox behavior. A subsequent standalone patch was released and the problem was supposedly addressed in the OS X 10.9.1 update but complications still exist.
Developers are given the option to download the latest version of the upcoming Mavericks maintenance update via Software Update or via Apple’s developer portal.
