    Now with the install of GM, is there any way to remove all the Developer Previews from the install history? I edited /Library/Receipts/InstallHistory.plist and that doesn't seem to do it. I can't find anything in /var/db/receipts that seems to relate so I'm not quite sure where this info is stored.

    Wait for them to go away naturally in 30 days?

    Do you mean it doesn't go away in the System Information pane? It worked for me editing the plist in the library receipts folder. So two things to check (1) did you refresh the installation pane in system information? And (2) did you make sure you are opening and saving the plist in plain text format? Check your preferences in TextEdit to make sure it isn't converting the plist to rich text format, since that won't work.

    In the App Store Update history.

    Didn't notice it says Updates Installed in the last 30 days, so it will disappear. Thanks.
