Apple Seeds OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 Build 13D17 to Developers

mavericks_round_iconApple today seeded build 13D17 of OS X 10.9.3 to developers, one week after releasing the first OS X 10.9.3 beta, build 13D12. The beta is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store as well as through the Mac Dev Center.

Apple is currently asking developers to focus on Graphics Drivers and Audio. As was discovered last week, 10.9.3 adds new support for 4K displays, offering "Retina" resolutions that improve readability along with support for 60Hz output from the Retina MacBook Pro.

Hey macrumors, you stole my thread (again):

You might take note that MacRumors actually has useful information in it.

The beta also includes a 4K display option for 60Ghz output from the Retina MacBook Pro.

60Ghz huh? That's pretty good. ;)

Do NDA's mean nothing anymore. Seriously if you are part of the program and you post here you are in violation of your NDA.

There is no other mechanism available to me to get support.

The seed discussion area is broken.
I can't take the machine to the genius bar because it's running a seed.
I can't run the feedback assistant because the machine is bricked.

WTF else can I do?!

If Apple wants to get mad at me for posting here, then that's fine with me. They've seriously screwed the pooch and I have no other options.

Not to rebut everything you said above but you are incorrect. I will not disclose which points. I am not trying to be rude or pick a fight you are just not correct. With that being said. Go into recovery mode and if you are part of the seed the new seed will automatically download, the recovery partition I am sure is intact.

So far as I am aware, there is no newer seed. It would download the same one, which I have no particular reason to believe will resolve the WindowServer's assertion failure.

Your assertion that I am incorrect with no supporting evidence has no more value than simply saying "neener neener."

BORING...! GUI is still choppy...! :mad:

Ever wonder why Apple never get things done the way it should have been pre-Lion...? :confused:

When do we expect to see 10.10 or 11 or whatever it will be called?

At the next WWDC, hopefully it'll include OpenGL being upgraded to 4.4 along with harmonisation OpenGL and OpenGL ES.

I think your "Name," says it all.

My username is first initial, last name. It's been that for 30 years.

The reason I can't rebut your specific issues is the fact I won't violate any agreement I am currently under. Every negative assertion is clearly in conflict with what I know to be true. So take what you posted and each individual assertion reverse it and boom, there you have it.

You could have been helpful, but you've been so much more.

At the time I posted there was nothing else here about it.

So information I provided was useful.

I didn't know how long it would take for a news story to go up here about it.

Who cares? MacRumors actually provided people with relevant information.

I wish Apple would do a 2 year major OS cycle instead of yearly. It's annoying having to upgrade an entire system each year.

I rather have them release point updates 10.9.x with some new 'big' features instead of just fixes.

Example: Kind of how they had Facetime beta app on the current OS but then included it in the next major release.

Still not an excuse to violate your NDA which is a legal contract. Would SilverSpring be okay with you violating a NDA you had with them which is typical in all employment contracts.

Irrelevant. My relationship with my employer differs in rather obvious and substantial ways from my relationship with Apple. First and foremost is that my employer does not make themselves unavailable for consultation when I have a crisis.

Your actions simply jeopardize the existence of any beta program. I have never known Apple to leave a customer high and dry, beta seed customer or Golden Master customer, ever!

Well, then this is a new experience for you. As it has been for me, quite frankly.

Consider this discussion over and hopefully when you do have a opportunity to chat with Apple they will help you resolve your specific concern but be prepared to defend the legalities of your actions.

If they apologize for stranding me, I'll be happy to apologize for trying to seek help elsewhere.
