It has been nearly two weeks since Apple released the seventh seed of the OS X Mavericks Developer Preview. But today, Apple released the eighth developer preview as the company slowly preps for the public release. For now, Apple is tied up with the release of two new iPhones, as well as the release of iOS 7 on Wednesday.
In this developer preview, Apple has noted there is a new version of iTunes that gives users the option to turn off song change notifications. They’ve also made a number of improvements with OS X Mavericks, including Safari enhancements, a tabbed Finder, Maps and App Nap. Apple always points out with each preview release that the software may contain bugs and that developers should not run the software on the devices they use on a daily basis.
Apple’s OS X Mavericks will be available to all users who have OS X Mountain Lion installed on their computers later in the fall, likely at the end of October. The OS X Mavericks Developer Preview 8 is now available via Software Update in the Mac App Store to all registered developers.
