    I'm more interested in when the PB will be updated. :confused:

    Just google the DP 6 updater and run it. It's so much better than the PB.

    My two cents.

    DP 7 - September 2
    DP 8 - September 16
    GM - September 30
    Public Release - October 21

    I was thinking that we may see PB2 being released along side DP7 on that September 2nd

    I thought the Public release would have been more around the 10th (is that not when the hold the Oct. event)?

    I like this, but doubt there will be 3 weeks between the GM and the GA releases. Typically, that’s only a couple of days - certainly not more than a week.

    ----------

    AFAIK, there’s no "Oct event" scheduled yet. But that does seem to be about the right time for a hardware event - a month after the iPhone event.

    Since they have a new public beta program this year, I'd expect to have more than 8 DPs because they're getting way more feedback than they ever did before.

    Which means :

    DP7 : Sept 1st. (Public Beta 2)
    DP8 : Sept 15.
    DP9 : Sept 29.
    DP10 : Oct 13.
    GM : Oct 27.
    Release : Oct 28.

    There's probably one more PB in the works imo, and maybe 2 or 3 DPs. If the DP6 or 7 is very stable we may not see a developer preview 8.

    The only way to know is to wait :)

    There's a public page, not in the apple.com domain, that might be used to tell whether parts of the pre-release operating system are complete. That page was not a barometer for 10.6 but did seem good for 10.8 and 10.9:
    • Snow Leopard (2009-08-28 release, 2009-10-22 observation)
    • Mountain Lion (2012-07-10 observation, 2012-07-25 release)
    • Mavericks (2013-09-18 observation, 2013-10-22 release).
    I can't guess a number of developer previews, and I'll not share the URL (tease!), but the current view of that page shows nothing related to Yosemite so I guess that a release is not imminent. No surprises there :rolleyes: … back to the sofa …

    PS, for search purposes: golden master

    Seeding and release of golden masters

    Not quite.

    Golden master 13A598 was seeded but not released.

    Golden master 13A603 was seeded but not released around 2013-10-20.

    Golden master 13A603 was released on 2013-10-22: OS X Mavericks Available Today Free from the Mac App Store

    Thanks, that makes sense. Digging a little deeper, it appears that:
    • golden master 13A598 was seeded, without release notes, and not released
    • golden master 13A603 was seeded, but not released, on 2013-10-19, presumably as a full installer (I don't recall a delta or combo update for that build)
    – and I don't know whether release notes accompanied the pre-release seeding of 13A603 … in any case, it's not unusual for a GM of OS X to be without release notes in such contexts :)

    Without commenting on the dates: there may be two pre-release golden masters.

    I'm actually wondering about that too. If there will be a Public GM and a Developer GM, or just one for both. And if the PB tester will even get a GM.

    My guess is that there will be a PB4 and after that either GM or public release. PB3 is way to buggy for a lot of people (no problems here though), but it is quite stable overall.

    Well, time will tell! I'm happy enough to be a Public Beta tester, feels great to help :D

    Mavericks has disappeared from that page; the disappearance was expected around this time.

    Yosemite isn't there yet …

    Postscript

    2014-10-16 18:38 nothing Yosemite-related at the page that I watch …

    What is this mysterious page? Hope GM arrives soon, PB3 completely removed for everyone from purchases, might be a sign...

    I would think that if the pre-release was removed, the sign might be that there was a major problem with it.

    That very well may be. But why no communication on what's going on for 3 days? Just removed and thats it... How about those who already installed it. I know its a beta, but a little info wouldn't harm anyone.

    I think the public beta should get the GM so Apple can iron out all the major issues with the GM in a month before the release.
