Apple Issues First Beta of OS X 10.8.4 to AppleSeed Members




Apple today issued the first beta of OS X 10.8.4 to AppleSeed members, just over two weeks after OS X 10.8.3 was released. The 10.8.4 beta is build 12E27, while 10.8.3 was build 12D78.

Apple is asking users to focus on Wi-Fi, Graphics Drivers and Safari, though no specific issues were mentioned.

1 out, 16 over the course of more than a half year to go.

Not to mention 10.9 will probably come out before 10.8.4. :P

I hope they fix the Safari memory leaks. PID: WebProcess using 10GB of RAM after day or two of usage is a little extreme...

And no, it's not Facebook's fault.

Safari seems snappier.

(They're asking people to focus on Safari? Come on, you knew this joke was coming)

Seriously.

I don't know why, but it takes forever with my SSD compared to snappy start up times.

If I remember correctly, that's what they did with 10.7.5 last year. I know they had 10.7.5 in beta when ML came out, just not sure how far back the beta started.

What the hell is an AppleSeed member?

What happened to beta access through the developer program?

Appleseed Members are people that Apple choose to test software before it goes on to developers. It is an invite only membership.

From this thread on Apple's discussion forums it would appear that various programs are given a 20 second window in which to close, thereby causing a delay.

There's a solution in that thread of editing a plist file with a shorter time to pass before a program is force closed.

I wonder if Apple raised the time because of cloud services? Perhaps they want programs to finish syncing before shutting down?

In any case, it's annoying with or without an SSD

Ask John Appleseed. He knows all about it. In fact he's testing 10.8.5 already.

Before anybody asks. And I know this question will pop up.

Appleseed members are not known for leaking iso's or dmg's.

Currently my Safari has been up for around 17 days and never have I seen it consume GB of memory (in fact, I have never seen it consume huge amount of memory at all since August last year) and neither do I have any process called WebProcess.

What the heck have you installed on yours ?

Hopefully this isn't an April fools joke! They definitely have more work to do on the graphics subsystem and Safari performance improvements. The WebKit dev builds are still snappier overall.
