mountainlionApple today seeded build 12F26 of OS X 10.8.5 to developers, marking the sixth beta iteration of 10.8.5. The release comes exactly one week after the previous OS X 10.8.5 beta, build 12F23.

As with previous betas, the update contains no known issues and can be downloaded via Apple's Developer page or through the software update tool of the Mac App Store. It is also available to AppleSeed members with a new version of Safari.

Apple's OS X 10.8.5 beta is being tested along side the next version of the operating system, OS X Mavericks. Apple has thus far seeded four developer previews of Mavericks and plans to offer the new operating system to the public in the fall.

I'm a total noob in this area, but can someone explain me why they are still updating ML when they're releasing Mavericks in Oct/Nov? :confused:
Why not...? ML is the CURRENT OS, Mavericks is the OS to be launched. It's not there yet. So ML needs to be maintained. Simple as that.

Then there is the whole "Testing a new OS" side of IT.

You wait for 10.x.2, test, and deploy. Unless it's Lion. Then you ignore it.

How do you know this, MacRumors? The developer site is down and you can't login.

Am I the only one confused by this?
