A couple of weeks following the previous seed, Apple has released OS X 10.9 Mavericks Developer Preview 7 to registered developers. The update is available via Software Update in the Mac App Store. If you find anything new, you can let us know at tips@9to5mac.com. We’ll be updating this post as changes are discovered. A new Apple Remote Desktop 3.7 seed has also been issued.

- Several new wallpapers included in System Preferences.

A tipster has sent in release notes:

iCloud and iCloud Keychain

  • iCloud Keychain users will be prompted to reenable iCloud Keychain after installing Developer Preview 7.

Installation

  • 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.

iBooks

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

Other

  • 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 com.apple.appstore domain.

    I think this will be the fourth update to the OSX that won’t affect a single change in my use of the Finder or computer itself. The last three were virtually unnoticeable.

    It’s good to have option. Me who is using the terminal like every day don’t have a problem finding this option.. I wonder if there will be a GUI checkbox in the Security page in System preferences later on?

  7. Since the update my Aperture has Problems to show the original *.CR2 RAW Files, it’s say that the filetype is not supported. Problems are on Macbook Pro and Mac Pro! I can reprocess the image, but i have to open everyone first!

    Some solutions or same problems?
