OS X 10.8.3 Beta seeded to developers

Apple, in its continued stand on churning out quality tested updates for its OS X line, recently seeded a new build of its Mountain Lion update, dubbed build 12D50 of the OS X 10.8.3.

As a pre-release build, the new beta is reported to have undergone significant enhancements over its previous predecessors, with no known issues reported as of yet regarding the build.

The last seeded build, build 12D44, proved to have certain major and minor issues which developers had raised and pointed out, issues which have apparently been resolved in the new release.

Also, apart from being the latest build, build 12D50 is revealed to bear the same “focus points”, giving emphasis on developer support on Safari, Graphic Driver development, Game Center, AirPort and AirPlay.

The new build also comes with the new “OS X Software Update Seed Configuration Utility”, a relatively new tool that streamlines the notification and availability of updates through Software Update.

As of posting, a report hailing from Cult of Mac notes that though versions of the new OS X beta had been circulating since November last year, there has yet been any official announcement on when the final version of the update would roll out.

Developers who are interested in taking part of beta testing the new build can easily find more details via Apple Development Center, and while the build is still on its beta stages, end users are no advised to give the versions a go, with waiting for the official release version being a smarter move to make.
