Apple’s Tim Cook already made it clear the company’s upcoming WWDC would largely focus on software, and some behind-the-scenes housekeeping reflects that notion. Developers on Friday were sent an email notifying them beta testing for OS X 10.8.4 has closed, suggesting a public release is imminent. A Gold Master has still yet to be rolled out, but today’s notice could mean it’ll arrive any day now.
Previous beta builds hinted at potential Wi-Fi, Safari and Graphics Drivers improvements. Otherwise, it’s unclear how much the small jump will introduce. Apple’s Mountain Lion was released last July, putting the software’s lifecycle almost at a year. It’s unclear if a completely new cat is incoming at WWDC, but we at least know little fixes are arriving for Mountain Lion relatively soon.
