Did anyone try the 10.8.2 builds on a retina MBP? Any UI performance improvements compared to 10.8.0/1?

I don't see it on the Apple dev center or in software update. Where'd you see build 12C35?

It's an Appleseed seed.

Oh I see. Cool! Apple invited me to join AppleSeed even though I'm already a developer and have an ADC account. I never replied to their invitation because I didn't think AppleSeed had anything that my ADC account didn't in terms of OSX builds, but since this is AppleSeed only I just accepted and now I can download the new build. Cool!

Interesting the devs didn't get it first, that's pretty rare. I assume they'll have it soon though.

Mind posting the OpenGL 3.2 drivers, since those are the ones that particularly matter for a Mac sold in the last three years?

I'm not sure if it's just me, but scrolling in safari while zoomed (using pinch to zoom to zoom in on content on a page) seems to be better than in 10.8.1. Forbes.com was a site that always gave me trouble in 10.8.1 and while scrolling while zoomed in is not buttery smooth, it's certainly passable in 10.8.2. I didn't ever really find there was a problem with scrolling in Safari in 10.8.0 except when scrolling while zoomed in.

Thanks for the info, nice to hear. I just tried on 10.8.1 and forbes.com is indeed very laggy when zoomed in.

Could you try the following:
- Go to http://www.theverge.com and wait until the page is fully loaded
- Fully zoom in using pinch to zoom
- Give it a fast scroll on the trackpad (so it scrolls down at least 1/3 of the page on it's own)

It's a bit of an extreme test (it doesn't even run 100% smooth on my iMac), but on the retina MBP (running 10.8.1) it's so slow that you don't even perceive it as scrolling because it's only updating 2-3 times per second.

I'll do that when I get home. I wish I did a more scientific test with Forbes.com before I installed 10.8.2 but I didn't really think about it until this morning when I realized it was scrolling fine. I'll let you know how that test goes later today.

yeah.

sorry i should have explained when i posted that apple hadn't yet updated the mac dev center frontpage and initially to access it you had to click on the "View all downloads" link at the bottom of the page.

however they have now updated their frontpage as well.

Scrolling on that site is perfectly acceptable. Not smooth as butter but it is completely fine to use. Forbes under 10.8 was so bad I couldn't even read anything unless I just didn't zoom in.

Mission Control and Changing Desktops

On my Macbook Pro 13" 2010 with Nvidia 320M, the Mission Control in 10.8.1 is choppy/laggy most of the time. Does anyone know if Mission Control runs butter smooth in 10.8.2 on this machine?

Also is the three finger Desktop swipe animation much faster?

If these two issues are fixed, I'll be a very happy Mountain Lion user!

It definitely got faster in 10.8.2. You should at least feel the difference.

Could you test another site?

Go to here http://www1.skysports.com/football/n...purs-extension

When on battery and it is using the built in GPU do you get a line running through the page that is not there when plugged in?

Worked for me. The issue is that Absinthe 2.0.x doesn't run natively under Mountain Lion if you just click on the app--you have to go into the .app bundle and launch the absinthe-10.6 binary manually from a terminal. I think the issue has something to do with .app signing, so turn your Gatekeeper option off before trying this.
