I don't think so. The latest version of the TeXDist pref panel is  
build 14, announced by Jérôme Laurens on 21 May on the MacTeX list  
(private), with the following comments:

gwTeX has probably build 11, announced there on 11 May.

How to check the version: Ctrl-Click (or Right-Click for people with  
a Mighty Mouse) on TeX Distribution Helper or  
TeXDistPrefPane.prefPane, select Show Package Contents and open  
Contents/Info.plist (it will be opened in Property List Editor in  
case you have Xcode installed). The string TeXDistSourceVersion is  
the build number, I think.
