Apple on Thursday released the latest version of its OS X Mavericks operating system. Beta version 10.9.2 is now seeding out to developers with several updates, though Cupertino says the focus areas are specifically changes to Mail, Messages, VPN, graphics drivers and VoiceOver support.
OS X Mavericks first launched on Oct. 22 as a free update to all users with modern Mac computers, and it has received a couple of updates in the two months following that launch. The new release suggests that reports OS X 10.9.1 will be pushed out soon are accurate. That version is already available to AppleCare staff and also addresses issues with Mail and Gmail support.
As developers get their hands on the OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 beta we should start to get a better feel for what exactly changes in the release. As usual, Apple advises that beta releases should not be used on production systems that are relied upon for business work, and that users regularly backup their computers while using it.
