Apple Releases OS X Mavericks Developer Preview 6

Apple has seeded the sixth Developer Preview of OS X Mavericks to developers, exactly two weeks after the release of the fifth Developer Preview. With the fifth preview, Apple introduced both the Mac iBooks app and a new beta version of iPhoto.

OS X Mavericks, which is expected to be released this fall, includes multiple new features like a tabbed Finder, full screen dual monitor capabilities, Safari improvements, and a new Maps app. Developers can receive the update via the Software Update tool in the Mac App Store.

I'm looking forward to Mavericks. That being said:

1) Tabbed Finder should have been here years ago.

2) Dual Monitor Capability for Full Screen Mode should have been implemented with the debut of the Full Screen Mode in the first place. Going full screen and having all your other monitors go grey is so ridiculous it should be considered a bug and patched in the Lions.

Now all we need is an upgraded iLife, iWork and iTunes Music Store with Lossless music, and everything will be dandy.

Can anyone verify this? For certain? I am still convinced with these colors it has something to do with the Dallas Mavericks.

Watch the Keynote.

Basically, all future OS X releases will be named after places in California.

Not really. What is new besides support for the new photo stream?

- Places now uses Apple Maps over Google.
- Create is now listed under the Share button.
- Share button has Print option
- Photo Stream is now referred to as iCloud
- No Sharing Preference Tab.
- Burn option under Share menu is gone

Didn't say it was anything good :)
