Seventh 10.9.2 beta seeded to developers

updated 05:44 pm EST, Mon February 17, 2014

Latest release comes ahead of schedule, may portend release

Apple has released another beta of OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 to developers, just five days after the previous build -- suggesting that the public release may not be too far off. Build 13C62, just three builds higher than the previous beta release, lists no new issues and again asks developers to focus their testing on Mail, Messages and VPN. The next update of Mavericks will bring make SMB2 the default to replace Apple File Protocol as the network standard.

In addition, 10.9.2 will bring FaceTime Audio to the Mac for the first time, along with contact blocking, both of which have already been implemented in iOS 7. The update continues to focus on issues in Mail, particularly with interaction of Outlook and Gmail accounts. A standalone patch for Gmail issues, and subsequent release of 10.9.1, has thus far failed to completely fix the issues.

Although no final release date has been indicated, the smaller gap between builds and earlier hints that the release may be ready for distribution by early March. The latest beta is available through Software Update for registered developer accounts, or by logging into the Mac developer portal.
