Apple Releases Second Public Beta of macOS Ventura 13.2

Apple today seeded the second beta of macOS Ventura 13.2 to its public beta testing group, letting the general public try out the new features ahead of the software's release. The public beta comes one day after Apple provided the beta to developers and nearly a month after the first public beta.

Public beta testers can download the macOS 13.2 Ventura update from the Software Update section of the System Preferences app after installing the proper profile from Apple's beta software website.

‌macOS Ventura‌ 13.2 introduces support for protecting an Apple ID with a physical security key, such as a Yubikey. The physical security key is used for two-factor authentication when signing into your ‌Apple ID‌ on a new device, on iCloud, or on other Apple websites, and it replaces device codes.

Apple says that physical security keys offer an additional layer of protection for those who are concerned about their Apple IDs being accessed.

Has been fixed since the first preview release of Ventura.
Sigh. Why do people think that their experience is the only possible experience?

Maybe it's been fixed *for you*. For me, and for many, it's not. I haven't been running beta since 13.1, but in 13.1 Windowserver still crashes with distressing frequency. No doubt it depends on what you're doing.

Did the WindowServer memory leak and out of control CPU usage on Apple Silicon get fixed?
These issues are also on Intel, at least on my Macbook Pro.
