For a second I thought it's a 10.9 Beta release.

What if 10.3 was just a placebo. I mean, 10.3 and 10.4 have exactly the same 'focus', wifi, safari, graphics.

Maybe 10.4 was supposed to be 10.3, but they were taking forever with 10.3 so they decided to actually release half baked thing.

EDIT. Sorry, meant 10.8.3, 10.8.4.

Definitely not a placebo. I've noticed a few additional annoying bugs since 10.8.3. Looking forward to 10.8.4...

Will this fix the networking problems which sees my network drives loose connection after deep sleep?

It seems like it's a bit late to be complaining about Panther and Tiger if you ask me.

They rarely details the changelog in the seed notes, it is almost always the same general list of area to focus on, it does not imply anything most of the time.

If anyone that can run the build has OpenGL Extension Viewer, could you post AMD new driver number and if more extensions have been unlocked? Currently on 10.8.3, 50% of OpenGL 3.3 has been unlocked, hopefully 10.8.4 will bring more!

Just yesterday there was one user with this issue, his admin was off in Users & Groups, you could also try disabling and enabling it.

Any significant performance improvements?

(Looking forward to the day when graphicscards on Mac running OS X performs as well as on Mac running Windows).

Slow shutdowns are usually there for a reason. When you ask the system to shutdown, it politely asks running processes to terminate. There are very many reasons why an individual process may not respond to a shutdown request in a short time. You would not thank your computer, for example, if it powered off with half a file written to your filing system. Hardware problems, as well as software and networking problems, can cause slow shutdowns.

If you use Google you will probably find guidance that you can use to go through the system events that take place during shutdown. There may be some clue there as to why your particular device is taking its time. If you raised a help call with Apple, they would probably ask you to provide the event log.

Safari IS snappier for me with 12E40. Seriously, not kidding. Fastest browsing I've ever experienced.

Does this version cache pages correctly? For example, visit the following site, which marks its home page as having a 30-minute expiry.

http://www.theregister.co.uk/

Enable Developer tools: Safari | Preferences | Advanced | Show Develop Menu in menu bar.

Go to the menu bar and choose Develop | Show Page Resources

On the LHS of the tools section, click www.theregister.co.uk.

On the RHS of the tools section, expand Request & Response.

Click the vulture icon near the top of the web page to reload the home page a couple of times. Request & Response should indicate "Cached Yes".

In version 6.0.4, it indicates "Cached No", which is incorrect. This particular site clearly sets response headers that give the page a life of 1800 seconds (expand the Response Headers section). And yet Safari doesn't seem to put it in the cache. That means an unnecessary and slow reload from the internet each time this kind of page is requested.
