    Apple appears to be nearing a public launch for OS X 10.8.5, with MacRumors receiving word that the company has seeded a new prerelease version to employees. The prerelease version arrives as build 12F35, and increment of two builds since the most recent developer seed just over two weeks ago.

    According to a source, the build includes final release notes for the update, highlighting fixes for Mail, AFP file transfer performance, screen savers, and Xsan.
    While a prerelease build for Apple employees is frequently indicative of an imminent public launch, it is not always the case. As was seen with OS X 10.8.3 back in early March, Apple issued a prerelease build to employees but then elected to distribute a new developer build roughly a week later with a public release following two days later.

    Such little amount of bug fixes, soo many developer betas over such a LONG period... seriously it seems they could of included a few new features to the OS in that time then a few fixes that should have been fixed ages ago (apart from the 802.11ac which has just been launched publicly in June).

    This isn't really a big deal, especially since 10.9 is coming.

    I hope the Mail.app issue is the same one I've been having (sounds like it, basically messages show up blank unless I open them in a separate window). It's so annoying that I've switched to Airmail for now. Airmail is nice enough, but I still run Mail.app for searches, because I really like the way Mail.app's search works.

    I think I have the same bug (in 10.8), I CMD+Q and then restart mail to fix.

    Nice to see them address the 802.11ac AFP File transfer bug. Hopefully it fixes the issue.

    You won't like Mail in 10.9 then. The bug is still there.

    I can confirm I'm having the problem with Mail not showing messages after a while.

    I'm also having a problem with Mail stripping the signatures from certain addresses when selecting them, even though there is a signature set. Anyone else?

    I'm really surprised with the patch notes. Assuming that this is the last version before Mavericks, you'd think that they would be going bugs like crazy.

    They don't usually bother listing all the bug fixes on the release notes, just the more notable fixes/changes.

    And after seeing the movie, I can't help but cringe everytime I see Kutcher's face now.

    Some people might not want to pay to update 10.9.

    Shipping version for the new rMBP? This is what some speculated about a few weeks back.

    So I thought this was also seeded to developers... but it seems it isn't yet. Very strange that it would go to employees only? Maybe the GM build is just days away and that there is nothing more to test.

    Might be an old fashioned concept, but some people (like me) believe that what you pay for should actually work. 10.8.x far from that...:mad:

    ? No such issue here. Neither 10.8.4 or 10.9
    Or, am I misunderstanding something?
