Apple today seeded build 13E25 of OS X 10.9.4 to developers, just under a week after seeding the third OS X 10.9.4 beta, build 13E19, and more than a month after the public release of OS X 10.9.3, which included enhanced support for 4K displays and syncing improvements.

The beta is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store and through the Mac Dev Center.

It remains unclear what improvements the 10.9.4 update will bring to Mavericks, but it is likely to include bug fixes and stability enhancements. Apple is asking developers to focus on Graphics Drivers, Bluetooth, Audio Drivers, Finder, App Store, and Safari.

I just got seeded 10.9.4 (13E19) as a Public Beta member, so I guess Devs are one cycle ahead.

I hope this means that Finder will become as snappy and responsive as it is in Snow Leopard, by far the most stable version of OS X to date.

Installed it... All works as in previous beta :) for the time being - did not mention any differences

I got the previous update a day after Devs

We're maybe just a rung down, and I'm in California, so... ? Just guessing.

The previous update is snappier, and I noticed that previously, when going back to the computer and getting to sign in, there was a lag and a moment of rainbow wheel before I could sign in. And that was gone.

Because they are different programs.

They won't always get the same seeds and even when they do they won't necessarily get them at the same time.

it does not say "pre release" on mine, maybe it's the final build?

Here's picture of this release and you can see there is nothing about pre release for this one compared to the previous beta :)

Edit: Nevermind I missed the picture on the first post, it didn't load right away and I did not see it!

Always good to see another build being tested to find any outstanding bugs before the General Release.

I hope someday Finder becomes as responsive and snappy as Leopard, which had the most speedy Finder ever.

WiFi issue finally fixed! (Hopefully) I don't have access to betas but some late 2013 MBP owners could report if this problem is finally gone.

Must be confusing for mac developers to test 2 different betas at the same time

Not really, most Devs would have multiple test environments anyway. Devs don't support just the latest OS, they have to support many previous versions of OS X, so adding one more to the mix shouldn't be an issue.

It's funny that in English we get the generic pre-release notes for the update but if I switch system language to French I get these same more detailed notes, in English.

The PowerPC version of Tiger was more stable.. 10.4.9 especially.

I'm not sure why you would expect a bug fix on the heels of an OS update (10.10) would include improvements to speed (or how it relates to stability). Personally I I have no issues with performance at all on 10.9.

I hope someday Finder becomes as responsive and snappy as Leopard, which had the most speedy Finder ever.

Personally I think Mac OS 8.6's Finder was more than a little faster than Leopard =P
