Apple Seeds First OS X 10.9.2 Build to Developers [Update: Includes FaceTime Audio]

Apple today seeded the first test build of OS X 10.9.2 to registered Mac developers, just three days after the public release of OS X 10.9.1. The build, termed 13C32, is available to registered developers through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store as well as through the Mac Dev Center.

Apple cites no known issues with the build and asks that developers focus their testing on the following areas: Mail, Messages, VPN, Graphics Drivers, and VoiceOver.

There is no word yet on specific fixes and changes included in the update, and a public release target remains unknown.

Update: OS X 10.9.2 adds FaceTime Audio to the Mac for the first time. FaceTime Audio was originally introduced to the iPhone in iOS 7.

Consumer OS.

Still; I love it.


I also have been using OS X professionally in the 3D animation market... it's not a 'consumer' OS. Though you could successfully argue that it is consumer-friendly.

Consumer? Hmmmm, guess I've been a delusional professional for the past 13 years... thanks for waking me up! Time to switch to a "real" operating system.

Since OS X 10.8.3:

"Apple Seeds OS X 10.A.B Build to Developers"



"Apple asks that developers focus their testing on the following areas: Mail, Messages, VPN, Graphics Drivers, and VoiceOver."

Only Apple could release OS X 10.9.2 so quickly.


I guess that's literally true. It would be quite a shock if Microsoft or someone else released OSX 10.9.2.

This may be the 4 gin and tonics talking from
The company Christmas party, but how about you fix f'in quick look in Finder? No one gives a crap about FaceTime audio.


What's the issue with Quick Look? None of my macs experienced any issues with QuickLook in Finder on Mavericks. It's quick, responsive, and does what it is supposed to do.

Do you have custom quick look plugins that could be the cause?

A lot of folks like FaceTime audio, kept saying it provides a better call experience compared to the regular phone calls. So, adding this to OS X will be useful for those folks.

i hope the "i hope this'll fix" posts will be fixed soon, because it's really annoying to read about things that are obviously a problem on a computer level instead of a global omnipresent bug implanted throughout the OS.
