Apple’s latest OS X version 10.8.3 is due out on Wednesday, and the new operating system is the first time that the operating system’s underlying technology has been modified to make it easier for developers to build apps on.
The Mac OS 10.9 Developer Preview includes several new features including an ability to write Java apps on Macs without needing to write a custom runtime.
But developers still have to write the same code as in the previous OS X versions.
To make things easier, Mac OS 11 will be released on August 6, and developers will be able to use the same Java runtime as the 10.6.2 Developer Preview.
The developer preview includes a new feature called Java Runtime Extensions (JRE).
The only difference between the current version of Java and the 10,9 Developer preview is the fact that the developer preview adds support for an optional JRE for developers who wish to build applications using the JRE.
The Developer Preview for Mac OS Mojave is due to be released in September.
