Inching the next Mac OS closer to public release, Apple has today issued an update for the preview of the next generation of Mac operating system, OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. The company issued the update containing new security measures in the OS for developers who are testing preview builds of the Mac OS prior to public release.
Currently this update is only for developers running the beta builds of Mountain Lion, specifically, Developer Preview 4. The update brings with it increased security features as well as better and more secure connections to Apple’s update servers. The update also means that Mountain Lion will make an automatic daily check for security updates.
The Mountain Lion operating system is expected to be released at some point in the last week of July 2012, and will be available through the Mac App Store priced at $19.99. The update to Mountain Lion is available to developers through the Mac App Store and is around 1.16 GB in size.
