Apple Seeds Build 12D58 of OS X Beta 10.8.3 to Developers




Apple today seeded build 12D58 of OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.3 to developers, marking the seventh beta iteration of the newest version of Mountain Lion. 10.8.3 was first seeded to developers in November.

Build 12D58 comes a week after build 12D54, and like the previous build, contains no known issues or features. Build 12D54 brought significant changes to WiFi, and asked developers to focus on testing AirPlay, AirPort, Game Center, Graphics Drivers, and Safari.

9to5Mac notes that the new build again contains significant changes to WiFi, but additional changes are unknown. Registered developers can download the update on Apple's Developer Page.

This post originally referred to Build 12D58 as the eighth developer seed of OS X 10.8.3 when it was actually the seventh seed.

Well that answers my previous thought of it being released today along side iOS 6.1. iOS 6.1 needs to come out soon because beta 4 expires Tuesday.

I don't get all these beta's? Are Apple actually listening and at least TRYING to fix the damn slow shutdown bug and options having to be launched twice from settings such as desktop background?

The slow shutdown is not really a "bug". It's an inconvenience for some people who have it. Apple has a lot more serious issues to fix during these beta tests. Something like a slow shutdown would be on the bottom of their list.

Great to see Windows 8 support and updated Safari. On my Mac, the native application that crashes the most is Safari.. Hopefully it fixes that along with a speed bump.

Agreed, but a a simple and easy to fix bug like this not being fixed for a quarter of a year is starting to produce a painful impression.

Mac sales going down should be a warning - do your homework Apple!

Mac sales going down is due to a general decline in PC sales. Thanks to the post-PC era. Not because of some random, minor, bug in an OS.

I was exaggerating - if you read the many related threads you just get the feeling that people are getting annoyed by the number of bugs - and some bugs are blemish and though avoidable.

I was referencing the Back to the Mac campaign - ML is a innovative but buggy operating system (graphics, airplay, WI-FI issues, ....). Apple clearly is aware of the declining market - but the quality of their latest software products don't meet their own requirements.

Why do you assume it's an easy fix? Maybe it isn't.

Mac sales are down because this year's quarter was one week shorter than last year's and Apple was highly constrained on new iMac supply.

Are these fixed?

-Slow shutdown

-Time machine backups always huge in size no matter how recent your last backup was

-Notes deselecting itself in iCloud preferences

These are my biggest annoyances with ML so far.

It must be fixed and as a user i don't really care how or do you want the next generation Macs with OS X to shut down in 30 seconds out of the box because it's low priority?

I got an honest question...

Why does it matter if the machine is a little slow to shut down? I don't shut mine off very often, I let it go to sleep, but when I do shut it down, I click on it and leave, I don't wait for it to be off, no need.

I don't want to sound "trollish", I'm just wondering why it matter?

Because for those that do want to shutdown, sometimes it just doesn't ... ever ... (well if 10 hours later counts as ever)... so you have to watch it.

Time Machine worst culprit in my mind for slowing/halting shut down. For example, if you manually stop Time Machine backup when preferences is still showing barbers pole but legend reads backing up n of n where the two numbers are the same then something won't let go of the Time Machine drive. Finder can't dismount it and shut down won't complete without pulling power plug out.

For those younger readers outside of Russia maybe you should have changed it to read gulag fixes you?
