Apple lanseaza OS X Mountain Lion Developer Preview 4 si anunta aplicatiile pentru iOS si OS X care au cel mai bun design


  Apple a promis in cursul serii trecute ca va lansa o noua versiune beta a OS X Mountain Lion pentru dezvoltatorii sai si iata ca acest lucru s-a intamplat. OS X Mountain Lion Developer Preview 4 build 12A239 si OS X Server Developer preview 5 build 125254j sunt acum disponibile pentru dezvoltatorii de aplicatii pentru Mac. Noul build contine toate functiile prezentate aseara de catre Apple si ar trebui sa fie o versiune aproape finala a sistemului de operare, insa nu orice versiune a OS X contine integrare cu Facebook. Apple a facut un build special pentru acest lucru si a anuntat ca va integra Facebook in OSX abia din toamna acestui an.

  Trecem de la OS X la aplicatii deoarece in cadrul WWDC-ului Apple a anuntat castigatorii concursului sau anual privind aplicatiile cu cel mai bun design. Apple a deschis in luna aprilie o sesiune de propuneri pentru castigatorii acestui titlu si acum anunta tot ceea ce a decis in urma propunerilor facute de catre utilizatori si dezvoltatori. Aplicatiile prezentate de catre Apple sunt disponibile in toate App Store-urile sale, deci nu s-a facut discriminare in ceea ce priveste platforma pe care sunt disponibile ele. Mai jos le aveti listate pe toate plus changelog-ul pentru cel mai recent build al OS X Mountain Lion.
