The first beta seed of 10.8.3 was released back in November, and Apple has updated the beta software no less than 10 times in 3 months. Still no official word on when 10.8.3 will be available to the public, but we’ll keep you posted.

The update is available to registered Mac developers running Lion Developer Preview 2. It can be downloaded through Software Update. The release contains no release notes and appears to contain only minor UI tweaks, according to tweets crossing the wire. It’s unlikely to be a big update. That will come with Developer Preview 3.
