The Apple Developer Network status page has seen quite a bit of updates lately. In fact, Apple developers got a nice surprise over the weekend – much of the site’s resources are back, including software downloads.
That didn’t take too long, and I’m really pleased with the level of progress that Apple has made since putting the status page up.
While the Member Center is still offline, each of their three dev centers – Mac, iOS, and Safari – are back up and running. The latest released build of each related developer preview for OS X Mavericks, iOS 7 and Safari are available from each page. However, please note Mavericks, Developer Preview 4, released on 2013-07-22, still isn’t showing as available via the OS X Development Center. Currently, the most current release is Developer Preview 3, released on 2013-07-08. If you want Developer Preview 4, you’ll still need to download it via the Mac App Store after installing Developer Preview 3.
A lot has happened with this story, and I’m going to move on to other items at this point, unless and until we hear about what actions, if any, will be taken against the security engineer that caused the whole bally-hoo in the first place. At that point, we’ll want to revisit the story, as I’m certain there will be consequences, and quite likely, serious consequences.
