Beta OS X 10.8.2 – also known in the development community as build 12C35 – is said to feature new Facebook integration, confirmed by Apple to appear in the updated public version of Mountain Lion launching the coming months.
Apple has reportedly asked developers to focus their attention on the Facebook integration, as well as other updated areas within the OS, including Messages, Game Center, Safari and Reminders, according to a report from AppleInsider.
The second version beta contains no known issues, unlike its predecessor which was released to developers last week, with reports of a failure to fix the system’s battery-sapping issues.
Apple spoke briefly about its plans for Facebook integration in Mountain Lion, upon announcing the launch of the new OS X on July 25. Confirming that the new feature will ship with the second major update of Mountain Lion later in the year, Facebook will operate in similar fashion to the OS’ current integration with Twitter, whereby users can post photos and content directly to their Facebook profiles via Apple’s ‘Share Sheets’ button.
Mountain Lion ($20.99 from the Mac App Store) is the highest-selling major OS for Apple, with a recorded three million downloads in four days following the launch. To see our complete review of OS X 10.8, click here.
