How many more DP's do you think we will have before Gold Masters?
As far as I remember, Mavericks had eight.
I'm more interested in when the PB will be updated.
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, thats only a couple of days - certainly not more than a week.
AFAIK, theres 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.
Theres an iPhone event on september 10 is there a chance they could release Yosemite after the event like last year
september 1 GM
september 10 public release
september 1 dp7
september 8 gm
september 10 public release
doubtful, sources have indicated a late october lunch for yosemite. iOS8 will be the focus of the september event
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
.....and the 100% absolute correct answer is....
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
back to the sofa
PS, for search purposes: golden master

Seeding and release of golden masters
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
I meant to say released to developers.
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
29 september dp9
13 october gold master
21 october public release
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
Mavericks has disappeared from that page; the disappearance was expected around this time.
Yosemite isn't there yet …
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.
