  • Network migration from earlier versions of OS X requires the Migration Update for Snow Leopard, Lion, or Mountain Lion, available from the Mac Dev Center.
  • Migration from Windows is not supported in Developer Preview 7.


  • PDFs imported into iBooks in previous seeds of OS X Mavericks may be renamed when opened with Preview.


  • Screen recordings taken with Developer Preview 7 are not compatible with earlier releases of OS X.
  • Fusion Drive volumes created with Developer Preview 7 are not compatible with OS X v10.8.4 or earlier.
  • Moving a full-screen Aperture window to a secondary display may prevent the app window from being visible in subsequent attempts to use full screen.
  • In Full Screen in Aperture, some menus and thumbnails aren’t immediately available until interacted with by the user.
  • When in Full Screen in Aperture, the toolbar at the top of the window may not be usable until it is locked.
  • Starting in Developer Preview 4, non-admin users will be allowed to install and update software from the Mac App Store. This functionality can be disabled with a profile that sets the “restrict-store-require-admin-to-install” key to true (boolean) in the domain.
