Apple Seeds OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 Build 13C44 to Developers

Apple today seeded build 13C44 of OS X 10.9.2 to developers, marking the third developer beta iteration of 10.9.2. The release comes a week after the second OS X 10.9.2 beta, build 13C39, and a month after the first OS X 10.9.2 beta.

The update is available to registered developers through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store as well as through the Mac Dev Center.

Apple continues to ask developers to focus on mail, messages, graphics drivers, VoiceOver, VPN, and SMB2. The second beta of OS X 10.9.2 began allowing Mac users to block people on iMessage and FaceTime, as can be done in iOS 7.

Apple has also seeded new versions of Safari 7.0.2 for Mavericks and Safari 6.1.2 for Lion/Mountain Lion, asking developers to focus on General Website Compatibility, Accessibility, AutoFill features, Printing and Emailing from Reader, Dragging Tabs Between Monitors, and Extension Compatibility.

everything working good here. only problem is that all these beta updates are a bit annoying as they are too frequent.


If you don't have time to be a beta tester, don't be a beta tester.

Get a SSD, I did a while ago, no more beach balls.

It still happens occasionally on a late 2013 rMBP. There's an underlying problem here.

I hope this speeds up finder. I just got my refurb Macbook Pro and it moves like it was built in 1999. smh


Install a SSD. Do a clean Mavericks install on the SSD. Never look back.

I've got a 2012 rMBP. Maybe I should try a clean install of Mavericks.
But somehow good to hear that it's just me, I guess :o


It's definitely not just you :) and I've noticed a bit of lag in earlier versions of Mavericks. I should clarify that with this current seed, on my machine, it's behaving much, much better.

Hope they fixed Quick Look. Opening RAW images is a pain in the a**.
Too slow. I don't know what they've done in Mavericks that it's so slow.

Does anyone know anything about that?


This is the reason why I only have Mavericks on one out of three macs in my house. It is unusable for a photographer when finder's preview (or Quicklook; whatever it is that loads automatically in column view) takes 7 seconds to load a raw image, and just trying works the hell out of the processor. I'm shocked that hasn't been fixed yet. It happened on two late '07 MBPs so I rolled one back to Snow Leopard and just left my late '12 iMac with Lion.
