Look, let’s face facts: it’s Thanksgiving week, which leads into a four day weekend that’s only preceded by gluttony.
In short, this week’s kind of a lost cause and you’re more likely to get stuff done NEXT week.
Per AppleInsider, in a note to developers on Friday, Apple revealed that it will be seeding one of the first beta builds of OS X 10.8.3 Mountain Lion sometime after Nov. 26.
Sources close to the story stated that the email was sent out to members of AppleSeed, the group of developers selected to test Apple’s next Mac update, and said the invites the company sent out last month were “too early.”
From the email:
“Thanks for accepting our invitation to test OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.3. The invites were sent out a little too early! We are working hard to provide you with a seed build soon, but we wanted to let you know that you have not missed any seed announcements. Please enjoy the USA Thanksgiving holiday! The Seed Team will be enjoying a break as well. Look for more information about the 10.8.3 seed during the week of November 26th.”
AppleSeed participants began receiving invites on Oct. 31, signaling that a beta for the next version of Mountain Lion was nearing completion. In the past, AppleSeed members have receive builds of new Mac versions alongside registered OS X developers.
The most recent Mountain Lion update came in September when OS X 10.8.2 was released, bringing system-wide Facebook integration and other features.
