Apple Seeds Build 12D68 of OS X Beta 10.8.3 to Developers




Apple today seeded build 12D68 of OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.3 to developers, marking the tenth beta iteration of the newest version of Mountain Lion. 10.8.3 was first seeded to developers in November 2012.

Build 12D68 comes roughly a week after build 12D65. Registered developers can download the update on Apple's Developer Page.

This post originally referred to Build 12D68 as the eleventh developer seed of OS X 10.8.3 when it was actually the tenth seed.

1 - Are wake-from-sleep Ethernet disconnections gone?

2 - mdworker/sandboxing issues and messages gone?

I'm using a thunderbolt ethernet adapter. I don't really have such an issue. I have a 1G ethernet router. When the MBP is in sleep, the router's LED status turns yellow, meaning it's not 1G any more. Once MBP wakes up, the LED turns to the normal green which means a full duplex 1G connection.

Maybe they don't want something about iOS 7.0 leaking out?

More than likely the annoying wifi drop that requires a reboot to fix.

I think Apple is making sure 10.8.3 is a good release because they are working hard on 10.9. That's how it's been in the past. The 3rd point release is usually the best one.

I said "usually" Ok ?

Were you around when we transitioned from PPC to Intel ?

My Dev kit crashed at least 50 times.

I mean crashed and burned.

Not true. I've semi-bricked a motherboard using beta drivers (not on a mac). And some people are bricking samsung laptops just by using linux.

They're adding support for the 1:1 aspect displays shown in the graphic.

Thumb resize.

< 10.8.3 has so many bugs. That is the answer.

You are asking the wrong question: "What the hell did they F\/CK UP SO MUCH (from Lion onwards) that it now takes them (at least) 11 beta iterations to fix?"

One word: WLAN.

(There are probably other areas, too).

There is also a major wifi bug with all mid 2007 to 2008 macbook pros - there is a wifi drop when streaming from itunes to appleTV or Airport Express as well as wifi drop when doing a time machine backup. Slows the Wifi to a crawl - almost as slow as the old dial up modems. There are work around taking the WIFI files from OS X.6 and X.7 and faking X.8 to read them as part of X.8. There were no wifi issues till X.8 with the older 07 and 08 MBP. I just had my 2007 MBP rebuild from apple with the Video Card Recall - they put a new LCD, top cover and backlight in it making it practically new again. Hoping to get at least a year or two out of it. At this point till the wifi bug is fixed it is staying at X.7 (runs 100% better in X.7 then it did in X.6)

They broke core audio aggregate device a release ago. Lots of pro audio folks in studio or live sound are effected by this. It really sucks. It's preventing me from using Logic right now. I really need an update that gets aggregate device working properly again.

Anyone know if this has been fixed in 10.8.3? I had to revert back to 10.7 to get aggregate device ordering working properly.

Very frustrating.

The never-ending beta testing. My insider sources assured me that this week we should see the final release. Maybe it is the Golden Master.
