Apple seeds second OS X 10.9.1, Safari beta to developers [U]

updated 06:41 pm EST, Thu November 21, 2013

Multiple fixes made; more sought for Mail, Safari, VoiceOver

[Updated with info on Safari beta] On Thursday, Apple released its second beta for the forthcoming OS X 10.9.1 release, build 13B35, noting some improvements from the first beta release and asking for further testing on areas such as Mail, Safari, graphics drivers and VoiceOver. In addition, the updated beta improves compatibility with VPN servers in OS X Server (addressing a standing but web hosts have had to work around) and now periodically updates Shared Links in Safari, improving that service.

The company also issued a new beta of Safari, now at version 6.1.1, for Lion and Mountain Lion. An updated Safari 7.0.1 beta was not included in the Mavericks beta, hinting that it may be released shortly.

Apple had already issued a separate bug-fix upgrade for Mail and iBooks in an effort to combat serious bugs found in the early versions, and mentioned in its release notes that the new 10.9.1 beta includes fixes for GMail and Smart Folders as well as other issues. Developers are still asked to continue focusing on Mail as one of several areas that needs further testing.

The second beta also resolves a problem with VoiceOver when it is used to read emoji characters. It is available through Software Update or the Apple Developer Center for registered developers.
