Developers asked to focus on AirPlay, AirPort & Graphics in first OS X 10.8.3 beta

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Apple on Monday supplied developers with its first pre-release beta of OS X 10.8.3, a forthcoming security and maintenance update for its Mountain Lion operating system.

People familiar with the beta software indicated to AppleInsider that it is identified as build 12D32. Developers have reportedly been asked to focus their testing on AirPlay and Graphics, as well as AirPort and Game Center.

As OS X 10.8.3 is the first beta of the software, there are reportedly a handful of known issues. Specifically, the preferences in Software update may appear shifted, particularly in non-English localizations of the software.

Apple was also said to have warned developers that some background graphics may appear black or transparent after waking their machine from sleep while running OS X 10.8.3.

10.8.3


The new beta software also may have issues when switching between applications using the Command-Tab keyboard shortcut. And Safari 6.0.2 is not offered to systems with the latest Mountain Lion beta installed, so Apple has advised developers to update to the latest Safari before installing built 12D32.

Apple promised developers last week that it would seed the first beta of OS X 10.8.3 after Thanksgiving weekend. Developers first began receiving invitations to test the software on Oct. 31, but Apple later explained that those e-mails were sent out "too early."

The current up-to-date build of Mountain Lion is OS X 10.8.2. That software arrived in September, bringing system-wide Facebook integration to the Mac.

I don't suppose OpenGL 4.x support is part of the updated graphics systems?

Safari is slow(er) under 10.8.2 and version 6.0.2.  I hope they look into this.

I sure hope it is included. OS X could always use more graphic drivers.

Is MacMini 2012 display problem addressed? PLEASE let this have a fix.

I'm not a professional developer but I'm wondering why would an incremental update introduce problems such as app switching using the tab key and other things I suppose have long been thoroughly tested and function on a modular basis? Maybe someone could explain this to me. Thx.
Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, my opinion, man.

No it isn't so they don't need to look into it.

I've not noticed it any slower, but it could certainly be faster, yeah? At the very least a lot less wasted from RAM overdose.

It's same old same old for me...  but it's renegade flash sites that are killing me.  I can't quite kill flash.

It's better... now it takes a couple nights of forgetting to close a flash laden window (e.g. comedycentral.com) to consume a couple GB of RAM... used to be just a few hours.

 

AirPlay is my critical need.  Make it work... make it faster  Make it great!!!!!

Why the heck do Mac apps not include AirPlay audio settings ala iOS besides iTunes -- QuickTime Player is the biggest omission!

Apple, add this is 10.8.3!

The VJ/ VDMX/ Quartz Composer community is recommending to stick with Lion until Core Image is optimised in Mountain Lion. Is Core Image part of "graphics"? Any insight, anyone?

Good. I'm happy about this announcement. Let's hope it pans out well. I plan to buy an Apple TV (ATV) next month, when I arrive back in the States. It'll go perfect with the iPad Mini, and MBP. Can't wait, especially with AirPlay on a 55" HDTV.
