Apple seeds fifth beta of OS X Mavericks 10.9.2

“Developers can now download the fifth version of OS X Mavericks 10.9.2, an upcoming maintenance release, from Software Update through their registered developer accounts, or from the Apple developer portal.” MacNN reports.

“The latest update has no significant changes in the release notes,” MacNN reports, “but again asks developers to focus on networking, Mail, Messages, VoiceOver, VPN and graphics drivers.”

“As is usual, there is no indication of a final release date,” MacNN reports, “though sources have said to look for 10.9.2 to be ready in early March.”

  1. Does 10.9.2 have any adverse affect on Pages 4? Apple’s abrupt eviction notice didn’t give me enough time to find another WP and convert 950 files. If 10.9.2 breaks Pages 4, I can’t “upgrade.”

    1. I hope your idea is way off base. If 10.9.2 breaks Pages 4, I’ll have to find something else. “Pages so-called 5” is still crap – missing numerous features that I’d regard as basic… not advanced by any stretch of the imagination.

      1. This move certainly didn’t do Apple any favors and caused a lot of folks to rethink the trust they had placed in Apple or any company to manage their precious files. Keep your own backup you say? Well, they didn’t work so well now did it!?!?

    1. Uhh, how about, no meta data, sync, duplicates, unrecognizable file names, hiding my books for what purpose and moving the file out of iTunes with no obvious way to back it up, for starters? It still requires iTunes to sync it, sort of, but it isn’t’ backed up now in iTunes. Do a clean installation and try to figure out how to reload your non-iBooks store epubs and PDFs, when you can’t read the file names.
      Calling it crap would be a compliment!

      1. As Kirk Edgar was saying, there is no problem with iBooks.

        You’re used to a particular workflow–though I would welcome the ability to change the titles of books that I import–but that doesn’t mean that there is a problem with iBooks more so that it doesn’t do or work the way it may have or (more importantly) that you prefer it to.

        As I said, there are things that I wish it did as well, though to condemn it as you’re doing is a bit much.

    1. I have been running all the Mavericks betas and NEVER have had this problem. I have a USB hub and a USB hard drive always connected with no start up problems. External drive sleeps like a baby when needed, but always available also.
