    I recently noticed that when I leave my rMBP plugged un for extended periods of time, the battery does not fully charge...

    The indicator on the menu bar shows 100%, but a 3rd party app shows that that batter is at 96%. Furthermore, System Information also shows that that battery is at 7600mAh while the max capacity is 8000.

    So is this a new feature with Mavericks which should prevent battery damage?

    Apple on occasion has tweaked how its managed the batteries so its possible that they decided to further tweak it in Mavericks. I really don't know if they did that as I've not noticed any changes on my rMBP but I can be a bit oblivious at times :p
