Improved OpenGL 4.+ support? No.

Improvements in WiFi (for some)? No.

SMB and AFP improvements? Nope.

Hmmm, well, rMBP graphics improvement? Nope, still glitchy.

Ummm, Finder improvements for large volumes? Haven't noticed.

Oh, wait, improvements in Facebook, Twitter and iOS integration! Awesome!

Can't wait for Facebook Home in OS X 10.9!

The shut down times have already been addressed ...


Oh no they haven't:

1. About 5% of the time my shutdown gets cancelled by Mail
2. Anytime I manually tell Time Machine to stop on my rig (e.g. because its been sat on having backed up up 90% of what it thinks it needs to backup for multiple hours) then OSX never shuts down - its pull the power plug time

So you can't just tell it to shut down and walk away

It has been addressed - if you spent a few moments reading the various posts on this website you would know that at least half a dozen people have addressed the issue. As for the time machine issues - I can't really speak as I don't use time machine.


It hasn't. The default time out time for all kinds of daemons and services is 20 seconds. They just stop responding, so after 20 seconds they are killed anyway. They screwd something so bad that the real fix i think will be 10.9 or whatver comes next.

Great points all around (esp. VxFS). I sincerely hope 10.9 focuses on more on core issues and stability than social integration (aside from improvements with iCloud, which would benefit from cross platform access such as Skydrive).

When is WWDC? Usually June, right? I should know this lol


Around June although it takes a few weeks some times for the sessions to appear on the developer website for those of us who are unable to attend - it will be interesting to see what the focus of this year developer conference will be about. IMHO I personally can't imagine too many end user visible enhancements but I'm sure there will be many improvements under the hood - LLVM, maybe making libc++ the default library, finishing off AV Foundation, enhancement to OpenGL/OpenCL/Grand Central Dispatch etc.

Edit: Forgot to include, I wonder whether Quicktime will eventually be moved over to being based on AV Foundation which will be a simple turn key solution with AV Foundation being the more low level kind of technology that the likes of Adobe and Avid will use in their applications to base their own encoding/decoding software upon. The last WWDC Apple developers announced that any new code should be based upon AV Foundation but Apple still very much makes use of Quicktime which makes me wonder whether the 'framework formally known as Quicktime' will be a lot more simplistic in basically turn key solutions that take advantage of AV Foundation - "I want to play a piece of music in my application but I don't want to re-invent the wheel again to do so" given how low level AV Foundation is.
