Apple Releases New Developer Beta for OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2
Apple recently seeded build 12C53 of the OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 beta to developers with no known issues. The company has seeded an updated version hinting that a public release is imminent. According to people with access to the beta, Apple is asking developers to focus on the same areas as the previous build (12C50), which brought further Facebook integration, Power Nap support for late-2010 MacBook Airs and extended iMessage functionality.
The changes made to OS X 10.8.2 in the new build are related to iOS 6 integration as developers were asked to accept new iCloud terms and agreements as well as update iPhoto for full Photo Stream compatibility. For those who didn’t know, at Wednesday’s event, it was announced that iOS 6 would introduce a new feature, named Shared Photo Streams, allowing Photo Stream users to share selected photos with friends.
Once released to the public, OS X 10.8.2 will be the second update to Mountain Lion since the launch of the operating system in July. This specific update to the Mac OS X has reportedly also fixed the battery issues
users were previously complaining about.
