Apple Releases OS X Mavericks GM Ahead Of Release Later This Month



Apple has released the Golden Master (GM) version of OS X Mavericks to developers ahead of the software’s reported launch later this month. The GM build of Apple beta software is always the version that ends up shipping to the public.

The Mavericks GM is available for download now in the Mac App Store for those already on the developer preview. It’s also available as a direct download in the Mac Dev Center. Apple has seeded the Xcode 5.0.1 GM (to make apps for Mavericks), OS X Server Preview 9, and Apple Remote Desktop 3.7 as well.

Releasing a GM means that Apple is done with this version of OS X. Mavericks went through 8 developer previews since its initial unveiling at WWDC in June. The new OS includes additions like iBooks, Maps, iCloud Keychain, better support for multiple displays, enhanced performance, and more efficient memory usage.
