    Apple issued a software update for OS X Mountain Lion Developer Preview 3 this evening. Apple released Developer Preview 3 to developers. The update brings the build number of Mountain Lion up to 12A193i (from 12A178q).
    One change noted by 9to5Mac is the addition of a "Do Not Disturb" setting to Mountain Lion's Notifications Center:

    Besides the Notification Center, Mountain Lion also borrows a number of other features from iOS, such as Reminders, Messages, and Game Center. Apple first previewed Mountain Lion back in February and promises deliver to customers in late summer 2012.

    Xcode

    "Xcode 4.4 Developer Preview 4 for Mountain Lion" is available as well.

    Edit: Original post mentions that.

    Most likely, except for the GM.

    What do you mean is it active? It's been active since DP1, just nobody has bother to sign yet, so it doesn't matter.

    There's one thing I have started to hate about Apple - Bad UI design.

    I mean - we have great UI experts at Apple and some of the UI elements on OS X and iOS are just so bad-looking.

    Just look at the volume bar or status bar on iOS, notification centre on iPad and OS X, now this switch button with the exact same UI from iOS, the whole final cut pro in helvetica.

    There's something wrong going on in 1 Infinite Loop. Apple needs to come up with much more innovating and better looking UI designs even those these ones solve a purpose and do it just fine. It's all we Apple geeks have craved for years - great UI design and its implementation.

    EDIT: Apple needs to fix the font in the notification centre on OS X- Helvetica is not suitable for low PPI displays running OS X and it looks crippled.

    I havent heard to many complaints about bug issues for the last dev beta. That gets me excited, especially since its may now. We could just a few short months from a GM. Idk about anyone else, but i still have a soft spot for Mac OS X, iOS is great and by far more popular, but my love for Apple goes back well before iOS :) :apple:

    Option to ungroup windows is now in Mission Control preference pane. This should make a lot of people happy.

    I feel like that's a very welcome addition to the message center in ML... good thing to know I won't **HAVE** to deal with the notification if I don't want to.

    This is true. Best practice (before Apple took over the world, lol) was to use Arial(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) on websites, because it is nicely hinted for the 72dpi crapmachines of the 90s and 00s.

    ...that's about the only good thing about it BTW:p

    That's the notifications drawer icon (but in do not disturb mode).

    Also, I think no body mentioned this, but you can activate the notification drawer via a drag from left gesture with 2 fingers (trackpads). It only activates if you are doing the gesture from the edge of the trackpad, so as to keep the 2 finger swipe gestures working correctly most of the time (except when you really want to get the notifications drawer out).

    Works well in practice.

    Older Macs

    Anyone know how it runs on older Macs? More specifically, a 2.26 core 2 duo with 4gb RAM?

    Thanks

    Been running DP3 for two weeks now on my MBA and it runs pretty smooth, also in combination with the apps I used most.


    This update does take a while to install, though.

    Some pro-Apple people on this forum are seriously butthurt over any critical comments made. Sad thing, is they fail to understand that this is for our benefit as well as for Apple.

    This was used to be a constructive forum - now its just people getting butthurt over any critical comments made on Apple or Apple products. Grow up.

    There is now an option to use Spaces instead of Mission Control, amazing!

    Nope, but I now do have a nice System Preferences icon on the button of my Notification Center.

    And a Display Preference icon in my menubar.

    Scroll down to reveal the toggle.

    Awesome! I'm definitely going to upgrade to ML just because of this. :D
