OS X 10.8.3 Build 12D78 Seeded to Developers




One week after the previous seed, Apple today released a new build of OS X 10.8.3 to developers. The latest version, which arrives as build 12D78, represents the 13th developer seed since Apple began developer testing last November.

As with previous builds, Apple is asking developers to focus their testing on AirPlay, AirPort, Game Center, Graphics Drivers, and Safari.

We had previously heard that Apple was seeding the prior 12D76 build to employees, suggesting that a public release might be imminent, but it seems that Apple is continuing to make final tweaks to the operating system update.

It's like Apple won't update 10.8 ever again, so they're making this 10.8.3 update count.

I look for the release news every Tuesday and Wednesday, only to find that developers have another seed. Apple could have released 10.8.3 and 10.8.4 by this point !

I'd be bracing for 10.8.3 to be the last update before 10.9 after this.

This update won't fix everything and it won't be perfect, and by the way Apple are dragging 10.8.3 through release after release, it doesn't appear that it will bring any joy this week.

This is just ridiculous. I have had wake on LAN issues ever since 10.7.2 and have done troubleshooting GALORE with Apple and at no point did anyone ever admit that it is their software issue. Finally I read that it fixes it in 10.8.3 and still waiting. What happened to IT JUST WORKS? It seems that it is a thing of the past.

I've gone from

and now going toward Anger.

At least let the dev's know what's wrong with it so they can help track it down.

Is that like admitting there's something wrong in the first place?

I hope this version is really polished because otherwise, Apple's wasting everyone's time.

Keep it going for 1 week and we'll have a new record!

(If you go by the original 10.8.2, it's been 175 days!)
I updated with new calculations (hope I got them right). Anyway if accurate crazy compared to the other top spots which were not anywhere as early as .2 to .3 releases.
