    Even as Apple is continuing to seed builds of OS X 10.8.1 to developers in order to address some of the most significant issues with the initial release version of OS X Mountain Lion, the company has already notified some users that it is preparing to begin seeding builds of OS X 10.8.2 for testing.

    While Apple is likely moving fairly quickly on OS X 10.8.1 in order to deliver fixes for major issues to users as quickly as possible, the company may spend more time on OS X 10.8.2 to address other issues that require attention but which are not of as critical importance.

    I'm gonna guess this is the Facebook integration payload which needs to be tested separately from 10.8.1.

    Since when does Apple rely on users for testing?

    I hope Siri is integrated in Mountain Lion sometime in the near future. It would be a very helpful feature in my opinion.

    Any chance 10.8.2 adds support for running iOS apps?

    As far as I know, at least since Lion.

    It's called the Appleseed program and has been around for a long time.

    I think 10.8.2 will include iMessage phone number activation. 10.8.1 doesn't seem to have it.

    Nope. That's not a point-release kind of thing.

    Maybe in the future (possibly 2013) release of OS X, after Siri for iPad is done well.

    Do Apple usually put loads of exclamation marks in notices like these? Doesn't seem very Apple... (maybe I'm just being pedantic)

    That won't be in Mountain Lion. Probably 10.9

    ----------

    I also thought the same thing.

    Nope, FB is a separate install which has been available to developers since before 10.8 was released. Probably just fixes that were lower priority than what made it into the .1 release.

    I suspect one more quick beta and a release soon after that. The last .1 beta still had "TBA" in the installer text.

    Why would you want apps designed for a touch screen on your non touch screen Mac?

    I'd imagine that means 10.8.1 is in a golden state so that they could begin to develop off of it. Wouldn't want to build a beta off a beta!

    My guess is that with Apple moving towards a yearly Mac OS X release cycle, we're going to see less features in 10.x.x releases. 10.8.1, 10.8.2...will be used mainly for maintenance type stuff while true enhancements and features will be saved for the 10.x releases themselves.

    Being a new Mac user, how is one notified? Do I have to manually check?

    That's what developers do all day, every day.

    It's called a fork or a branch - and you can have multiple 'forks' or 'branches' of a project, and you merge them together for a release.

    Someone violated their NDA..... Again, as usual.

    I'd imagine there's at least one more build of 10.8.1. Latest build isn't GM.
