Apple Releases OS X Mavericks Developer Preview 2


After releasing the second beta of iOS 7 for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch developers, Apple has also seeded the second Developer Preview of OS X Mavericks to developers. 

The second iteration of the OS X Mavericks beta carries a build number of 13A497d, while the original version released on June 10 was build 13A476u.

Thanks for the news, was expecting this after Beta 2 of iOS 7. Unlike that, I've found Mavs pretty stable so far, so I don't expect to see too many changes/fixes in this one.

iBooks could come as a seperate Mac App Store download. A view I found elsewhere and that I support. Time will tell though. iBooks for iOS was also something you intially had to obtain from the App Store on iOS.
