Any idea or precedence on when 10.1 GM will be released?

Hey guys, just a quick question that I thought you all would have the best chance of knowing the answer to. I've upgraded to the 10.1 beta twice (B1 and B2) but had to downgrade back to 10.0.2 each time because it was destroying my battery. I'm in love with the portrait mode though so I was wondering when you think the GM will be available or if the battery has gotten better in B3. Is there any precedence for how long X.1 releases go through beta periods? I'd assume they're not as long as X.0 releases but not sure. Maybe some guesses when it'll be released based on your B1-B3 use? Thanks guys.

Nothing Apple has done this year with respect to the beta program has been precedented. There really is no way to predict for sure. However, the latest beta build has a release like nomenclature, I'm told, so this may be a Gold Master candidate. If I had to venture a guess -- and that's all it is, a guess -- I'd say we'll see 10.1 before Halloween.

That's a shame. Battery life has been a winner for me. GM probably before the end of this month. Maybe one more beta. It's impossible to predict.
