The latest beta build of Apple’s OS X 10.8.3 was recently released to developers, with no major issues reported to date (as of writing).
The newest build, dubbed as “12D58”, came with minor changes to the system’s Wi-Fi access/features/assets, which hasn’t really caused a dent in its overall stability and functionality.
Well accepted by the general developer community to have no real issues, the newest Beta comes roughly a week after its last build was released, with its early release attributed to have been the cause why no issues and problems have yet been noted.
Just like its previous builds, the new 12D58 build tests developers in trying out how their engines fair with AirPort, AirPlay, Safari and Game Center. Graphics Drivers and their compatibility are also among the items which Apple hopes beta testers of the new build would look into.
Also seeded through Apple’s new OS X Software Update Seed Configuration Utility, the latest build mirrors the same notification update system found in beta versions released in December, making the process of receiving updates and notifications quick, easy and convenient for developers via Apple’s Mac App Store.
As a beta, 12D58 is positioned as a pre-release update to Apple’s Mac OS X 10.8, more popularly known as Mountain Lion. As a beta, the version is geared towards having developers assess how stable it is with their developed projects, as well as geared to help Apple address potential problem areas within the update’s internal codes.
For end users, downloading the beta is not advised, given that an official update is more inclined to be free of bugs and certain software/hardware incompatibilities.
