    As noted by 9to5Mac, Apple today seeded build 12E55 of OS X 10.8.4 to developers. The release comes nine days after the previous build 12E52 and marks the eighth beta iteration of OS X 10.8.4.

    As with previous beta releases, Apple continues to ask developers to focus on Wi-Fi, Graphics Drivers, and Safari.

    The update is available through the software update tool in the Mac App Store and Apple's Developer Page.

    They really seem to be taking their time with this one. I hope the get most of the crap ironed out. OS X gets buggier and buggier with each new release.

    So have they reduced the time it takes for the laptop to go sleep?

    Yeah! Only a handful more to go. I'm betting 10.8.4 is released around WWDC, with 10.9 DP1.

    Gonna install this now and check on OpenGL support, test out WiFi on my Mac Pro, MacBook Air, Mac Mini and console reports.

    ----------

    Same thing happened to me last beta release, an hour after I posted it. They took my screen shot as well (and yes, I got confirmation it was). lol :eek:

    Is there anyone, who is testing this 10.8.4, to simply advise us of the shut-down time they are getting, and give no further comment on why other people should or should not desire a faster shutdown time.

    i.e. for this beta, just state the average shutdown time in seconds, and add no further comment.

    Runs fine, as do the other previous betas. Notice no difference between this beta, the last beta, or 10.8.3

    Usatoday.com has been flashing artifacts since build 12e47. Hopefully this is rectified before public release. I'll be updating in a couple of days to 12e55.

    OpenGL 4.0 support is probably only available via the Haswell IGP drivers. Some OS X frameworks need also some changes. iThink only OS X 10.9.x on Haswell-hardware will support OpenGL 4.0.

    They better not! I just bought my RMBP not that long ago!

    The Intel HD 4000 (Ivy Bridge) has had a couple of really good driver updates on Windows: they've added OpenGL 4.0 and improved performance by 10% while allegedly lowering power consumption (oh, and that update includes OpenCL 1.2, too).

    Let's hope Apple can do the same for OSX (man, why must they insist on writing their own drivers?)

    I'm pretty sure Intel is responsible for their OSX drivers. Apple writes the front end part of the graphics subsystem.

    What's the current record for the number of beta seeds?

    Whatever the number is I think we're headed for a new one!

    Really hope this fixes the networking issues I have after deep sleep on my iMac.

    My Macbook Pro has been flashing MAJOR graphics artifacts since upgrading to 10.8.3 (this did not happen in 10.8.2). When the glitches become severe enough, the system freezes up completely, with a hard restart being the only recovery.

    I'm hoping that 10.8.4 will fix this issue!

    Here are some videos of my problem:

    FYI: Intel Linux OpenGL driver is faster than Apple OSX driver...

    Graphics artefacts with overheating happens usually due to faulty hardware.

    Really? I always understood that the drivers were written by Apple.

    There seems to be some debate with the ATI/NVidia cards. It's possible Intel has a different arrangement though.
