What will 10.8.3 bring?

I know, too early to ask but I want to know.

All I want is my resume and notifications to work proper. And please bring back the f keys option for third party keyboards, that's just pathetic. Apple keyboards are meh, I don't want to be forced to use them for a option I need ticked.

Problem is, 3rd party keyboards do not have a Fn key, making the setting meaningless. I have neither resume nor notifications issues.

Mine has a fn key. Anyway, I don't think you quite understand just how important this is. An fn key is useless when using the f12 keys in something like a game. If your just doing it for something quick (can't think of a scenario atm) it probably won't matter.

As for the resume and notification issues I guess some people like me have issues with older machines. It's not uncommon. So you I would advise you ditch your puzzled smilie.

Try out some razer or logitechs keyboard and mice. Apple has beautiful design and build but the flat keys are annoying. their mice are well, I'm not gonna even say.

I guess the nice way to say this is they don't suck, there are just better computing hardware third party. You just happen o have lower standards here, no problem, it works for you.

No, I fully understand the Fn key setting - I use it myself. I have not tried a 3rd party keyboard with OS X though. I have not heard any reports of these issues, but I am not surprised that they exist.

I meant the f keys used as standard without the primary media function, not the fn key but all right. Yeah, I made a thread whining about it. Its a problem all right.

Hopefully it will fix these bugs (some of which I sent to Bug Reporter):

-Memory Leaks in certain Nvidia GPU's

-Green button zooming in the finder "Icons" view not correctly resizing

-Slow shutdown caused by "appleeventsd" hanging for 20 seconds before being terminated.

-battery life (has gradually improved since 10.8.0)

-User Interface performance. Especially with Mission Control and desktop switching. (Lion improved over its iterations, hopefully Mountain Lion does the same)

-Not permanently saving custom folders in the "Desktop & Screensaver" section in System Preferences

-QuicklookSatellite process eating %150+ CPU time when trying to generate thumbnails for certain media files. Related to sandboxing. Workaround is here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1463364

-Re-enable the ability to use a laptop with the internal display de-activated when connected to a monitor. Currently one needs to place a magnet in a certain spot to trick the computer into thinking the lid is closed.
This command "sudo nvram boot-args="iog=0x0" no longer works in 10.8.2 .


Edit

-Launch Services constantly creating duplicate entries in "Open With" when working with multiple Mac OS partitions

-Spotlight privacy settings affecting other install partitions. This bug began in 10.7 for me.

Finally... someone notices my problem... I thought I'm the only one pestering Apple about nvidia GPU memory leak issue...

Does your Apple menu logo sometimes appear a bit brighter than normal until you use Mission Control? then it appears jet black.

These two are down right infuriating!

This too. Seriously, how can Apple not find these? do they not use their OS at all?

Sometimes I love the Internet. How can you say I have lower standards when you know nothing of what I have or tried. I have owned plenty of Logitech keyboard sets and Razer mice. The mechanical media keyboards to my favourite at the moment, the Solar keyboard K750. I personally prefer the quiet laptop type keyboards. Own a number of MX1000's to MX Revolution and a few others I've forgotten the names.

I use Logitech mice on Mac and Windows. Love Apple's flat keyboards the most. Especially the bluetooth wireless version. Even though I've been a Logitech user since 2003.

Whoops, sorry, I'll repharse that. You just have different taste. No need to be so touchy.

And it's awesome that you love the internet, I like it too

You're spot on. I'd be so happy if apple did all the things you mentioned as well as fix a few bugs with the finder that I mentioned in other threads as well as some bugs in safari.

I hope those that are having problems are reporting them to Apple via http://www.apple.com/feedback/macosx.html, if you don't then Apple may not know of these problems. For the ones mentioned in this thread, I do not have, except for those requesting features. :/

We won't hear anything about 10.8.3 for another week, since they are off this entire week.

Hopefully fix the mdworker, sandboxd and wake from sleep issues that have been happening since 10.8.2 was launched...this is really a major issue for many if not all users.

These are two big ones - the latter improved with the recent updates. But honestly I'm not sure that you really can achieve the Snow Leopard battery life again as ML is more complex with a lot of additional processes running in the background (iCloud, notification center, ...).

Does those system processes relate to the dropped wifi when turning on from sleep?

That issue Apple may not be able to fix, given that sleep turns Wi-Fi hardware off.
