updated 09:52 pm EDT, Tue October 22, 2013

New version bring full compatibility to OS X 10.9

Adding to the plethora of Apple software updates today, Cupertino has upgraded Xcode, OS X Server, and Apple Remote Desktop as well. Xcode has been incremented to v5.0.1, with Apple Remote Desktop being boosted to version 3.7. OS X Server with the Mavericks core is now at v3.0.

The new revision of Xcode includes SDKs for OS X 10.9 Mavericks, OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, and iOS 7. New features included for OS X Mavericks include continuous integration bots to build and test iOS and OS X apps on OS X Server, a Source Control menu creates new remote Git repositories on Mac servers, and a Debug Gauge for energy use to display a live graph of an app's power consumption.

Advanced remote management tool Apple Remote Desktop has been upgraded to version 3.7. This update is recommended for all Apple Remote Desktop users, and addresses several issues related to overall reliability, usability and compatibility. This update also provides support for OS X Mavericks, automatic copy and paste between local and remote computers, improved support for Mac systems with multiple displays and multiple IP addresses, and enhanced multi-observe with gesture support for swiping between screens.

With the new version of Mavericks, Apple has updated its addition to OS X client to transform it into the server version. As with previous versions, the addition includes file sharing enhancements, a profile manager, Xsan, Virtual Private Network implementation, and Netinstall support. Server implementations included are for caching for Apple-distributed software, Xcode, Time Machine, Calendars, Contacts, Wiki, and Mail. Specific fixes from the previous version are not yet available.
