[OS X TeX] Danger?

According to Mac Rumors, "a golden master candidate was seeded to developers earlier this week.” Apple is holding a special event on October 16, and I’ll bet the marketing people are pressing for perfect product convergence at that time, including Yosemite. I wouldn’t put it past Apple to knowingly sacrifice some users to get Yosemite pushed out the door. When they pushed out 10.9.0 they left in a very obvious and annoying bug in the finder. I will not be among the first downloading the Yosemite update.
