Alongisde the iOS 6 beta, Apple has also seeded OS X Mountain Lion Developer Preview 4, making it available in its Dev Center. This is a near-final version of Mountain Lion, and as such, there aren't many areas of concern listed in the seed note. It makes sense, since Mountain Lion will be released next month. If you're a Mac developer, you can grab build 12A239 now, as promised in the WWDC 2012 keynote.
While troubleshooting a home network issue today, I stumbled upon a new feature that Apple is introducing in OS X Mountain Lion. Many have referred to the Safari Reading List feature that debuted in Lion and iOS 5 as a glorified list of bookmarks. That's kind of true, although Reading List can also let you know which items you've read and which you haven't, and also gives you a text preview of each item as well. However in Mountain Lion you are able to read your Reading List items even when you're offline.
When you aren't connected to a network and pull up Safari, you get a message that tells you that you aren't connected to the Internet, but that your "Reading List articles are available for viewing while you are offline." Definitely a nice bonus when you wanna read some stuff but have no way of browsing the web.
