Apple Seeds Two New Mavericks Updates to Employees for Testing
Apple has internally seeded two upcoming updates to Mavericks, OS X 10.9.1 and OS X 10.9.2, to its employees, according to a source that spoke to 9to5Mac. Reportedly nicknamed "Board," OS X 10.9.1 will be released later in the month to fix several bugs introduced with OS X 10.9.
Since the release of Mavericks, users have reported several different issues, with the Mail app, mostly related to Gmail accounts. Apple has already seeded an updated Mail app to its employees and AppleSeed members, and it is possible that a Mail fix could be bundled into the next public Mavericks release. Apple is also said to be preparing updates for issues within Safari, iBooks, and Remote Desktop.
OS X 10.9.2, nicknamed "Carve", is also said to be in testing with Apple's software engineering teams, adding minor feature enhancements and additional bug fixes after the 10.9.1 update.
In addition to Mavericks updates, Apple has also been testing iOS 7 updates. As we reported this afternoon, MacRumors has seen increasing numbers of devices running iOS 7.0.4 in web logs since October 22, suggesting that the next minor update to iOS 7 could come in the near future.

Interesting that they're giving names to minor releases. I don't remember Apple doing this with the Cat versions of OS X (at least not that I heard about).
I'm guessing, based on the surfing terms that:
"Board" -- will be focused on system stability and bugfixes
"Carve" -- might focus on new features or improvements, adjusting to user and internal feedback

Os x 10.10
I hope OS X 10.10 will not be created with the same philosophy Microsoft created Windows 8 thinking that we all now have huge touchscreen displays in front of our desktops. Seriously I installed Windows 8 on Fusion out of curiosity and I was like 'what were they thinking?'.

I will always hate those bug-fixes descriptions from Apple's software. They seem to always fix what nobody cares and the true annoying bugs are rarely mentioned and you have to install the update and play the dice.
