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.
