Apple seeds first beta of OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 to developers

“Just a couple of weeks after releasing OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 to users, Apple has seeded the first beta of the upcoming OS X 10.9.4 to developers,” Mark Gurman reports for 9to5Mac.

“It’s unclear what changes are in store with the new system, but hopefully it fixes the many headaches that Mac Pro users have been facing since 10.9.3′s release earlier this month,” Gurman reports. “No word on when 10.9.4 will go public, but it is interesting that this Mavericks release will be in beta in tandem with OS X 10.10‘s beta release next week at WWDC.”

  1. > but it is interesting that this Mavericks release will be in beta in tandem with OS X 10.10‘s beta release next week at WWDC.

    Why is it “interesting”? The last incremental update of the current OS X version is usually “in-progress” concurrently with the developer releases of the next OS X version. What would be unusual is if the next major OS X version (10.10) was officially released “to the public” BEFORE 10.9.4 was released. And that won’t happen…

  2. From past experience, I suspect 10.9.4 beta testing will be long, drawn out and lackadaisical on Apple’s part. I hope I am entirely wrong. Thankfully, I haven’t found OS X 10.9 Mavericks to be much of a problem (unlike 10.7.5, which remains IMHO unfinished to this day).

    The really interesting beta testing is going to be 10.10. I do so hope it offers some good stuff, and not the ultra-boring flat, flatter, flattest crap we’ve seen in analcyst predictions. I want to have a pleasant summer, free of ranting at Apple. 😉

    1. A Summer free of ranting at Apple? Where’s the fun in that 🙂 I’m really looking forward to testing 10.10, or what ever it’s called. I too have not had any major problems with Mavericks, except some Open Directory glitches with OS X Server. I’m hoping that Apple will shock the always wrong analysts and release something totally different from what they’re predicting. I get so sick of these morons trying to speak intelligently about what Apple’s plans are when they have absolutely no idea.

      1. I’m sorry to hear 10.9 Server still has glitches. I skipped it after finding 10.8 Server largely unusable.

        It’s annoying to have Apple FUD and bizarro predictions about Apple come true. I’m going to step back and watch for awhile.
