Apple released the third beta of OS X 10.8.5 (build 12F17) to developers today.  In the seed note Apple asks developers to focus on Wi-Fi, Graphics, Wake from Sleep, PDF viewing, and Mobile Device Management.

Given the planned release of OS X Mavericks this fall, 10.8.5 could very well end up being the last major version of Mountain Lion before Mavericks ships to the public. A developer beta of Mavericks was made available to developers the week of WWDC.

    They will release 10.8.6 around the same time as Mavericks to parallel any new features between the two OS’s.
