  • Apple Seeds OS X Mountain Lion 10.8 Golden Master to Developers


    Apple recently seeded what’s intended to be the final test version of its OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion to developers with no known issues. This means the next generation operating system is complete and set for its imminent launch. Apple’s Mountain Lion GM signals the final stage of software development for the OS, which is expected to be ready for the public later this month unless developers find any issues with the finalized build.

    The news comes just after a near-final build of Mountain Lion was made available to developers at the start of Apple’s WWDC in June 2012. This update included previously unannounced features such as voice dictation and a Power Nap mode. Along with these two features tighter iCloud integration, offline webpage viewing in Safari, and Messages are also in the pipeline for the next-generation OS X.

    Alongside Mountain Lion’s 200 new features, a substantial security system that regularly checks-in with Apple’s servers is also to be released. This is being put in place to ensure that the latest patches and updates are installed on a user’s Mac. The automated system can be seen as being a result of the Flashback Trojan that reportedly affected some 600,000 Macs worldwide.

    For those of you who are interested you can read the change log below:

      I have been waiting for this feature to work as well. The phone number works on iOS 6 beta on ipad2, but the feature was not available in the developer preview 4. Downloading the GM to see if it is an option now.

      seriously thought i was going crazy thinking i saw something that really wasnt there lmao.. gunna watch the keynote again cause when i pay to upgrade to ML and these advertized things are not there im going to be upset. I mean come on it works in iOS6 perfectly. I get an imessage to my phone number and it pops up on my ipad and iphone, i get a facetime i can answer it on any device even if its to my phone number.

      So far im not super impressed with Mountain lion, they say twitter integration but the only thing integrated with it is posting to twitter,

      Was just reading the "What's new" on the Apple site and it does say by phone number associated to Apple ID.

      Side note as reading through it. You don't have to buy Lion to be on it. It says only need current version of SL and you can just buy ML.
