    The interval between each DP release has been approx. 2 weeks, which means that DP4 should be just around the corner. Does anyone have any thoughts/hopes about what it will introduce? Any bugs that will be fixed?

    Maps graphics corruption on resize issue.

    Would also like to see 11.1 with iTunes Radio.

    I expect Overall stability and performance improvements.

    Here's hoping this extended downtime of the developer portal does not effect a release of DP4 of iOS & OS X.

    I hope it includes replacement icons and designs for contacts, reminders, calendar and mail.

    I'd expect for developer releases to increase as time goes by. But if it should come, bet it will be simply overall stability and improvement. Hopefully they will redo Contacts and Calendar apps and add some contextual lines along the way. Now it just seems waaaaay to simple.

    ...but this is officially DP3 13A510d (DP2 was 13A497d and DP1 was 13A476u) and not DP3 1.0. Apple doesn't use version numbers on DP (that I can remember) and I believe any revised release would automatically be DP4 xxxxxxx.

    DP1 and DP2 are just listed like that, DP3 is listed as Developer Preview 3 1.0,
    which leads me to believe it'll be a smaller update.

    Remember that mountain lion had several versions of some of the DPs. I expect it will be the same for mavericks.

    I could be wrong, but I don't think we will see a DP4 this week. Maybe just another version of DP3.

    Riddle me this...What constitutes a full DP version over a partial? DP3 didn't add any features (at least in the release notes) except Migration Assistant and seemed VERY minor.

    If they make mail have notifications when the app is quit like reminders that would be nice.

    DP3 has destabilised my entire system, so I'm hoping DP4 will sort that.

    Could be nice, but also could be difficult to do without moving mail server logic into the notifications ... thing (technical term!). With all of the different types of servers supported by Mail, it could be more trouble than it's worth.

    Maybe also add the Quick Reply feature found in iMessage to Mail as well? That would be nice.

    A DP release is not about adding new features with every release but addressing outstanding issues that Apple wants developers to test out.

    If they found one or two bugs that were rather large or show stoppers, they'll update the current DP with that without calling it a new DP.

    Don't think that's ever going to happen.

    I don't think it has ever been that way?

    On my MBP i've noticed that System Preferences loads instantly now when I click on it. Previously it would take quite a while or not appear at all and I would have to click it again (even though the light appeared underneath it!).

    Overall system seems much more responsive.

    They would more than likely just move the Mail server logic into an agent that runs in the background like iMessage (imagent).

    Mavericks performance is outstanding when compared to Mountain Lion. The difference is literally night and day. Transitions are fluid, as is Safari (even with the iGPU is heavily in use).
