OS X Mountain Lion
Just one month after Apple released the first revised edition to its Developers Preview of the upcoming OS X Mountain Lion (10.8) OS. The third Developer Preview has just been seeded, and as the title reveals, it is only for those subscribers of Apple’s Developer Program who are paying for their subscription.
The latest build is 12A17q, and since it is only just been seeded, the new features and changes are yet to be ascertained. However, Apple have noted of some known bugs and issues in full detail, with the latest iteration of the upcoming OS.
At this point of time, installation of OS X 10.8 over 10.7.2 (or previous) using FireVault activated may not work, while some Apple menu items may not function correctly if there’s a sandbox app in the foreground. It is also been noticed that iTunes is currently having difficulty in synchronization of notes – in fact, it isn’t syncing them at all. Whereas mail’s photo browser can’t access the iPhoto library at this point in time.
Apple will have to resolve such couple of issues from this version of OS if the projected late summer release of Mountain Lion is to bear fruit. Still it have its fair share of bugs crawling through, but after the teaser back in February, there’s still much for Mac users to be excited about.
With iOS becoming so popular in such a short span of time mainly because of those so called post-PC devices that is the iPad, it was almost a formality that elements of Apple’s Mobile and desktop operating system would begin crossing over. Mountain Lion is an amalgamation of the two, as it is always the case with Apple Products; we expect everything and every device to be perfectly harmonious and in sync.
As mentioned, it is set to drop late this summer, although with so much to do and only a few potential developer previews to come, having everything ready by the deadline period is going to take much development. As usual the users will need to be a developer in order to download Mountain Lion, Developer Preview 3 and if users have an interest in to the inner workings of OS X, it is strongly recommended you sign on to the program.
