With the final version of iOS 7 set to debut for iPhones tomorrow, Apple is concentrating their efforts on cleaning up another of their operating systems. Mavericks OS X 10.9, first announced back at WWDC in June, has so far run through 7 beta versions and the 8th is now available.
The Developer Preview 8 of Mavericks can currently be downloaded through the Mac App Store for registered developers, headlined by iTunes 11.1 which adds the option to turn off song change notifications. In addition, the release features improvements to iCloud Keychain, Apple's cross-device password manager which was recently omitted from a Golden Master release of iOS 7.
The developer release also brings with it a variety of enhancements and fixes, improving on new features such as a tabbed Finder and the new Maps app. Sadly, no official release date has been made available by Apple, although odds are it'll be coming whenever the company decides to release their refreshed Retina MacBook Pros.
