Apple Seeds First OS X 10.9.2 Build to Developers [Update: Includes FaceTime Audio]




Apple today seeded the first test build of OS X 10.9.2 to registered Mac developers, just three days after the public release of OS X 10.9.1. The build, termed 13C32, is available to registered developers through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store as well as through the Mac Dev Center.

Apple cites no known issues with the build and asks that developers focus their testing on the following areas: Mail, Messages, VPN, Graphics Drivers, and VoiceOver.

There is no word yet on specific fixes and changes included in the update, and a public release target remains unknown.

Update: OS X 10.9.2 adds FaceTime Audio to the Mac for the first time. FaceTime Audio was originally introduced to the iPhone in iOS 7.

There was no fix for Finder's preview with photos in 10.9.1 and it's not listed here for 10.9.2. Wtf Apple?

Good.

Frankly, at least in my case, 10.9.1 seems to have made my Mail IMAP interface to my Google Apps account flakier than before. Slow, doesn't update at all for several minutes at times, odd time-out warnings, and so on. I understand Google has a nonstandard IMAP implementation but Mt. Lion's Mail app seemed to handle it just fine.

Since OS X 10.8.3:

"Apple Seeds OS X 10.A.B Build to Developers"



"Apple asks that developers focus their testing on the following areas: Mail, Messages, VPN, Graphics Drivers, and VoiceOver."

They are working on future revisions well in advance. This one was probably started weeks ago. Look to any open source project and you'll see a "Timeline" tool where they are planning changes and updates several versions into the future. It's not really a start-stop-start-stop process. There's several overlapping versions in development at any given time. They are also working on OS X 10.10 and iOS 8 right now, too.

What's wrong with QuickTime?.... though I do agree they need a 64-bit implementation of their QuickTime 7 player or equivalent functionality restored to regular QuickTime player.

Consumer? Hmmmm, guess I've been a delusional professional for the past 13 years... thanks for waking me up! Time to switch to a "real" operating system.

I also have been using OS X professionally in the 3D animation market... it's not a 'consumer' OS. Though you could successfully argue that it is consumer-friendly.

Yes, please enlighten us as to what is so f*ckuped about QuickTime? Missing features? Something not working right?

Any chance this will fix the 2013 Airs periodically freezing on a black screen? my friend exchanged one with that issue and the replacement does the same thing. Apple pretty much said they won't replace it again because it is a problem for many people, and they were working on a software fix.

Hope this fixes mail and stops the bug introduced in 10.9.1 where a system with 16GB RAM with not much open will run out of Application Memory regularly. Can't use some of my apps if the Mac will pause them randomly when I need them to be working.

does anyone know if the PCIe issues that have been affecting some users has been fixed? it started in 10.8.5 and was present in 10.9.0... havent heard if 9.1 fixed it or not. blackmagic design, tc powercore, some other expansion card users were all affected and Apple acknowledged it was a bug.
