OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 Beta Seeded to AppleCare Employees

MavericksFollowing the seeding of the latest OS X Mavericks 10.9.1 beta to developers yesterday, Apple has now distributed the latest build of the OS to AppleCare employees, reports 9to5Mac.

This sort of internal release typically signals an imminent public release of the software, assuming the OS X development team does not find any mission critical bugs in final testing.

The update includes the following fixes:

- Improved support for Gmail in OS X Mail, and fixes for users with custom Gmail settings
- Improves the reliability of Smart Mailboxes and search in Mail
- Fixes an issue that prevented contact groups from working properly in Mail
- Resolves an issue that prevented VoiceOver from speaking sentences that contain emoji
- Updates Shared Links periodically when open in the Safari Sidebar

The first beta of 10.9.1 was seeded to developers back in mid-November following a public update specifically to address issues with Mavericks' Mail.app and Gmail.

I see why apple made this update free, buggy mess

Because 10.8 was such a great release that it deserved to be charged for. And the same with 10.7.

AirDrop? Not so fast. You want it to work magically somehow...but I bet you haven't thought of the 10 million reasons why its not so simple.

If they don't get this right they should stop calling it AirDrop on both devices. It's definitely not the same. Using the same name for it implies that it's compatible. And if it doesn't work I'd prefer a Bluetooth solution that any other devices use.

Glad to see they aren't wasting resources on trivial issues like the 5-minute long system freezes that happen to me on a daily basis since installing.
