Apple has just sent out a new pre-release version of OS X 10.9.3. The update has a build number of 13D17 and asks developers to focus on testing the graphics and audio drivers. The limited scope of the focus indicates that issues in other areas have been ironed out and the software is almost ready to ship to customers. Apple first seeded 10.9.3 betas to developers earlier this month. The update is expected to bring support for 60GHz output to 4k Displays at Retina resolution from the latest generation of MacBook Pros. The full change seed note is below:
OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 build 13D17 Seed Note
OS X Mavericks Update 10.9.3 is an update to OS X Mavericks 10.9.
Please be aware that you will not be able to revert back to your previous system after updating. Please install this update on a system you are prepared to erase if necessary.
You can install this update using the OS X Software Update Seed Configuration Utility:
- If you have already installed the “OS X Software Update Seed Configuration Utility”, choose “Software Update” from the Apple menu. Otherwise, proceed with the following steps.
- Log into your Apple Developer account and download the “OS X Software Update Seed Configuration Utility”.
- After running the installer, the Mac App Store will open automatically. Click on the Updates panel and the latest version of OS X Mavericks 10.9.3 seed will now be available for download.
- When a newer seed build is available, you will receive a notification to update from the Mac App Store. Click the notification to begin the installation. New seed notes will be posted in the Mac Dev Center.
- To stop receiving new seed builds, go to the App Store in System Preferences and where it says “Your computer is set to receive pre-release Software Update seeds”, press the “Change…” button.
Note: If you are using a computer which gets its updates from a local Software Update server, the OS X Software Update Seed Configuration Utility will reconfigure your machine to use Apple’s Software Update servers. Your computer must be able to connect to Apple’s Software Update servers to install the seed. We recommend that you remove any Configuration Profile that specifies a local Software Update server before installing the OS X Software Update Seed Configuration Utility.
