Mountain Lion Developer Preview 3

Apple has just released a new OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion Developer Preview about a month after the last release. Dubbed Mountain Lion Developer Preview 3, build 12A178q is the third beta release of the company's next major desktop operating system. Developers can grab a download redemption code in the Apple Developer portal, which will be used to get the update from the Mac App Store. OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion will be publicly released late this summer, but anyone with a Mac developer account can get access to the Developer Previews immediately. Release notes after the break.

  • On systems with FileVault enabled, canceling the restart to the Mountain Lion Developer Preview 3 Installer may leave your system unable to present a password dialog at boot time. You can repair the problem by holding down command-R to boot to the Recovery OS and then using Disk Utility to unlock and Repair your volume.
  • Installing OS X 10.8 over 10.7.2 or earlier with FileVault turned on may fail
