precedent from el cap and Sierra both had beta 8 last week of Aug for late Sept release.
Plus there are still things not turned on/working such as iMessages sync/iCloud. I would think a GM would have that enabled? IDK, I am a first timer beta testing.
IMO, it's nowhere near GM. At least 3 or 4 more betas to fix a host of glitches. Even the High Sierra install over previous Sierra systems is still VERY unstable and doubly so considering SSD and non-SSD support for HS by different models. Apple cannot afford a mess with this transition, so I think the betas will continue some time into late September and possibly until just before the new iMacPro gets released.
That feature isn't going to be in the initial release of iOS 11, if you believe all the rumors.Plus there are still things not turned on/working such as iMessages sync/iCloud. I would think a GM would have that enabled? IDK, I am a first timer beta testing.

Well, No - They just issued another DB this morning.
I finally updated my 2009 13" MacBookPro5,5 (with the installer patch from dosdude1) with High Sierra beta 9. I figure this must be the GM, or at least the last beta before the GM. Even if just the latter, it's close enough.Probably stopper bugs. This is it, folks, so fasten your seat belt for the main 12.13.0 event on Sept 12th!
Possibly, but I'm guessing there will be no more betas. 9 betas is already a new record. That's more betas than any other OS X / macOS release.There will probably be one more release before the "final release", and then one more 1-3 days after that for .0.1 release.
Nope. At most 1 more beta, but I'm guessing no more betas, although the possibility remains that the GM is slightly different from the last beta.hmmm....
There is plenty of time for at least 3 more betas.
In the old days, when Apple had to release final code to manufacture installer media, then a couple of weeks was necessary, I suppose, from final to stock stores, etc.
Now, you might get bug fixes within hours of the actual release.
Who says it is October? The last couple of OS X / macOS releases were in September. I don't think there has been any official release date stated.macOS High Sierra is due in October. And with APFS still in very rough shape (at least with FileVault + APFS Encrypted), I suspect we will get at least a couple of more betas before it is declared GM quality.
Same. I don't understand what the issue could be. Seems to me it's the same as Contacts, Calendars, Notes, iTunes, etc. all synching in iCloud. It worked well for me in betas 1 and 2 before they removed it.Hopefully they’re getting close - I’m also pretty disappointed that messages in iCloud was taken out, as it was working well for me... here’s hoping that isn’t too far into the future. I haven’t had too many issues with the HS betas thus far, and yeah we’ve had a fair number of revisions must be getting close!
