    Yes, i wrote the title Like This, i just had too and i hate it too.

    So i downloaded 10.9.2 Beta when it was released and i have since then gotten 10.9.3 updates, so i downloaded 10.9.2 stable from apples website and installed it. I still have beta updates therefore i can't update through app store anymore. Lets say 10.9.3 officially comes out, but 10.9.4 beta also comes out. That would mean 10.9.4 would show as latest version. I could download it from apples website but i like the App Store because its faster, easier, smarter etc.
    How can i disable these? I don't want get any beta updates.

    What was the reason you signed up for beta access again?

    You're a developer but you couldn't figure that out on your own?

    Yes, people with genuine problems. Not so called "developers" that seemingly have no clue how to troubleshoot on the most basic level in the OS they are supposedly "developing" for.

    Tragic, no?

    To be honest, I was trying to find a solution to this too. I never suspected to find the options in System Preferences considering you install it like any other packaged program.

    It's entirely different to not knowing how to troubleshoot conflicts/errors in your code.

    Um no? I have been using Mac OS X since 2001 the first release, i use Mac OS X more than 5 hours a day, and i know pretty much everything. But this, i couldn't figure out lol.

    ----------

    Not really tragic, why do you have to be rude just because i didn't figure that one thing out my self?

    Doesn't this work back and forth?

    Once klicked on 'Do not show pre-release updates' the whole section of 'Your computer is set to receive...' disappears, no change button anymore, so obviously the Mav Beta Access Utility doesn't install this as a permanent option in App Store prefs. How to enable it again?

    Edit: figured it out, it needs to be reinstalled. Nevermind.

    Not sure if this works with the Beta Access Utility for the public beta testing program, but for the mac developer program, we get a similar thing called the mavericks seed configuration utility and it works pretty much the same way. I once disabled it and got it working again simply by reinstalling the utility. It worked for the developer version, but I haven't tried it for the public version. I suspect though that this will probably work for the public version too.
