According to people familiar with the pre-release software, dubbed Safari 7.0.3 for OS X 10.9 Mavericks and Safari 6.1.3 for Mountain Lion and Lion, Apple is asking developers to focus on general website compatibility, push notifications and AutoFill enhancements.
Apple introduced Safari push notifications in version 7.0 of the Mac Web browser, allowing websites to deliver real-time breaking news, important updates and other content via Notification Center.
In addition, Apple is requesting testing of the Login AutoFill feature and generic extension compatibility, while credit card AutoFill is getting special treatment in the OS X Mavericks-only Safari update.
All three seeds can be downloaded individually from Apple’s Developer Center.
Just few days ago community approved RC version as stable and here we go.

It is unclear why Apple has chosen to drop support for Windows 7 on the Mac Pro, but it could be a sign that the company intends to discontinue support for the operating system in future Macs given its advanced age.
Apple’s Mac Pro only supports installations of Windows 8 or later with Boot Camp, according to an updated Apple Support document that lists versions of Windows compatible with the 2013 Mac Pro.
Boot Camp Assistant on the Mac Pro also specifies that it only includes support for Windows 8 or later, as evidenced in a screenshot from Twocanoes Software (via MacWindows) indicating that users are not able to install earlier versions of Windows. The 2013 Mac Pro is the first Mac that does not include support for Windows 7 with Boot Camp 5

Text Detective is a fully accessible app that reads text from the camera in your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad within seconds. Point the camera and sort through mail, read menus, cards, product packages, medication labels, and all kinds of other print around you. The text can easily be read, edited, copied and pasted into documents, emails or other apps. It even keeps the text in a history for future use.
Text Detective works best with the clean and crisp text you find in documents, and at a distance of about the length of a forearm. You can use it wherever you go – no need for network coverage – it even works on the plane.
The app is optimized for iPhone 4S or 5, but can be used with iPhone 4 and iPod touch. If you want to use Text Detective on an iPad, please be aware that the camera position is different to the one on the iPhone / iPod, which might require additional training and practice to align the camera lens and align the text.

The new Mac Pro 2013 is advertised to support up to 64GB of memory, and we understand that pro users running applications that place high demands on RAM have a need to meet and most likely exceed this threshold,” said Angus Wu, Director of Research and Development at Transcend. “For this reason, we have developed and fully tested higher density modules to give users the option of raising their Mac Pro system memory to the advertised 64GB right up to 128GB
Transcend has introduced new RAM updates for the 2013 Mac Pro, allowing users to bring the total amount of memory in their machines to 128 GB, double Apple and OWC’s maximum 64 GBs of RAM.
Transcend’s DDR3 RDIMMs are available in 16 and 32 GB modules to boost Apple’s 2013 Mac Pro machines to 64, 96, or 128 GB of memory, but its 1333 Mhz 32 GB modules run more slowly than the 16 GB 1866 Mhz memory modules it offers, along with those from OWC and Apple.
While the slower speed of the 32 GB modules may be an issue in certain situations, the possibility of bumping RAM to 128 GB will outweigh the speed loss for many power users.
Apple today seeded build 13D17 of OS X 10.9.3 to developers, one week after releasing the first OS X 10.9.3 beta, build 13D12. The beta is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store as well as through the Mac Dev Center.
Apple is currently asking developers to focus on Graphics Drivers and Audio. As was discovered last week, 10.9.3 adds new support for 4K displays, offering “Retina” resolutions that improve readability along with support for 60Hz output from the Retina MacBook Pro.
