Apple has released the Gold Master edition of Mavericks to developers, suggesting that the newest iteration of OS X is ready for public consumption.
Last night Apple released a new version of Mavericks to developers that it is referring to as the “Gold Master” edition. For those of you unfamiliar with software terminology, this is the term used by companies when they feel that the software is ready for use by the public. We already knew that Apple is targeting a late Oct. release for the software, so this milestone being hit at this time definitely fits in with that timeline.
This latest version of OS X is going to bring a lot of changes with it, such as killing off the cat sub-names, and promises a lot of redesigns as well as new features. If you’re Mac is currently running Mountain Lion, the last major update to OS X, then you’re ready for Mavericks and now you just need to wait for its release.
