Extremely stable? 10.8 - .2 has been as extremely stable as I can imagine. Over a months uptime on a mechanical with 16GB page outs.

Is that another beta or a final release to the public?

Must be a beta, there's no updates showing for me. I see no mention of 10.8.3 on other tech sites. Nor is Apple Insider reporting anything about it.

A beta that hardly fixes anything.

I'm sure it fixed something. It's the second build since the last beta.

Is it really necessary for Apple to make us wait?

Hmmmm this build appears to have fixed the slow shutdown issue for me.

I've restarted my computer several times now and every time it's shut down within 4-6 seconds regardless of what I have running. I haven't even seen the spinner show up, all the apps just close, the screen goes gray and it's off.

Anyone else who was having slow shutdown before have it fixed with this build?

That does not spark confidence. Spaces can be a little laggy sometimes.

The new builds mean they still have bugs unfixed that they want addressed before release. And with any of these builds there's the possibility that an attempt at a fix breaks something else, so they want to get any update tested enough before public release. The last build seems like it may have had a couple things that got worse, so it's good they did another beta.
