OS X Mavericks Released for All Mac Developers as Golden Master Seed

 

Following today's release of OS X Mavericks Build 13A598 for members of the company's AppleSeed testing program, Apple has now posted the build for all registered Mac developers, referring to it as the "GM" (Golden Master) version that will be released to the public.

Apple has also seeded the GM build of Xcode 5.0.1 for building applications for Mavericks. 

Apple is reportedly targeting a late October launch for Mavericks, with the company starting to train AppleCare staff on the upcoming operating system this week. Sources have indicated that training must be completed by October 11. 

Update: Apple has also seeded developers with an iPhoto 9.4.7 update that "addresses an issue that could cause iPhoto to quit unexpectedly on launch when running OS X Mavericks GM Seed."

I'm looking forward to tags, the new energy saving features, long overdue improvements to multiple monitors and not feeling the need to gag when using Calendar.

I've been using the DP on my dev machine for a while now - multi-monitor support is SO much better. Probably worth the $30 or so they'll likely ask just for that.

Quite the rush job for a GM.

 

Game Center and Reminders makes the ui inconsistent with the recent visual upgrades to Contacts, Calendar and Notes.Screen%20Shot%202013-10-04%20at%209.00.0Screen%20Shot%202013-10-04%20at%208.59.3Screen%20Shot%202013-10-04%20at%208.56.5Screen%20Shot%202013-10-04%20at%209.00.5

Then there's these not updated pieces, the Downloads Stack PDF still says Mountain Lion and the Trackpad videos still show Mountain lion as the background and then there's the issue of iBooks not having a show in finder option.

Apple just doesn't care about OS X anymore.

Personally, I love Mavericks! The Multiple Displays, Tabbed Finder and Tags make my life much easier!

Does anyone have the MD5 hash of the Golden Master for comparison?

I just installed OS X 10.9 as upgrade on my Macbook Air. So far so good. 

 

One thing I noticed: Apple must have modified the colour profiles. Red in particular seems much more intense than on OS X 10.8.5.

 

Positive side effect: The upgrade unbroke the FaceTime HD camera, which yesterday's 10.8.5 Supplemental Update had broken on my machine.

Ironically the supplemental update was supposed to fix the FaceTime HD camera!

 

If you have a MacBook Air with an LG display there are a couple of calibrated profiles around which are a massive improvement!

The calendar looks nice though.

For whatever reason it completely disabled it on my machine.

I'm out of luck then, as my MBA has a Samsung display.

*shrug*.  Would you rather have Apple update us with a few small new features every year and have an upgrade cost of $20 - $30 or rather hold onto it for multiple years and go back to charging $80 - $120?

 

I agree overall with your post.  A consistent looking UI in OS X use to be what set it apart from Windows.

 

Good thing I don't use GameCenter at all, but I am using Reminders quite a bit and wish they would have updated it.

 

I suspect we will see an OS X next year that has a lot of the UI elements iOS 7 has.

No, i like the yearly releases it's just the inconsistency of the UI that bothers me and how they let bugs slide through QA sometimes and make it to the public even though people are constantly reporting issues to them.

If so it will have to be done carefully as Microsoft's attempt to unify phones, tablets and desktops has been poorly received.

Meh, I don't see them taking it to that extreme.  More in the way that iOS 1-6 style goes well with the OS X UI style from Leopard on up.  Or, how Windows Mobile matched Windows OS in style.

 

I'm anxiously nervous to see what I worry might be an overly white OS X.

 

The frosted effect on the menu bar would look really cool.

OS X has never been that consistent since at least Tiger but ok...

I hope it'll be a free upgrade for my new iMac though. I think I'll unbox it only when Mavericks is out.

I also hope it doesn't take the iOS7 route, I don't see this on my computer screen. Flat interfaces are okay but taking out all the skeuomorphism elements only alienates technology and their users.

Report your findings to Apple they may be fixed quickly and ammended before it is released on the app store?

After using iOS7 for a while now, I REALLY wish they were making the entire UI look like iOS7 UI.. Much more polished look

It is very, very fast and responsive. Finally, I was just about to switch back to Windows because of the absolutely pathetic performance of Mountain Lion.
