Apple seeds OS X 10.9.1 Mavericks beta to developersApple on Tuesday seeded the latest OS X 10.9.1 beta build to developers, bringing minor changes to the upcoming maintenance update as it inches closer to public release.
Tuesday's beta, dubbed build 13B40, comes two weeks after Apple issued its last pre-release update, which brought fixes for Gmail, the OS X Mail app and Smart Folders.
According to reader Gregg, Apple asks developers to focus on the same areas for testing, including Mail, Safari, Graphics Drivers and VoiceOver.
Since OS X Mavericks launched in October, Apple has issued two updates to fix issues with Mail and iBooks for Mac. Unlike the usual maintenance update, these were separate standalone patches.
Developers can download the latest OS X 10.9.1 beta via Apple Developer Center or Software Update.
