Here we go again. My money's on 30 betas being tested before being released to the public

I find it strange that although the release notes clearly tells developers to focus on Safari, it still has the same build as 10.8.3; Version 6.0.3 (8536.28.10).

Possible that there are updates to shared libraries used by Safari.

Why is that every build of 10.8.x requests wi-fi testing? Do any of you still have wi-fi issues? Why are their drivers in such bad shape that they need constant improvement?

Let me guess, 10.8.4 will still not fix the mdworker bugs.

Probably updated Webkit rather than the actual app.

There is an enterprise level bug in the WiFi.

I hope this fixes the frequent kernel panic on my 2009 Mac Pro with dual NVIDIA GT 120s, as many note here.

It could be the interaction of Safari with the new graphics drivers or wifi stack

I'm hoping that we only have a few builds to download before this goes gold...

EDIT: The UI seems a bit snappier, I just downloaded and I'm working through a few apps. It's noticeable on my 2012 MBA 13"

310.20.xxx so very close to the first build of 10.8.4 very much as expected.

The graphics driver version won't really change until 10.8.5 or 10.9 and it was the same thing with 10.8.2 and 10.8.3 so there you go.
