Apple has again updated its "Golden Master" candidate of OS X 10.10 Yosemite in a developer-only release, the third such build. Apple had already seeded a second GM candidate just two days ago, with the first one coming exactly a week before that. The new version, build 14A388a, is exactly two nightly builds up from the previous version. There were no new release notes to indicate what was changed, suggesting that the new GM candidate contains a fix for a recently-discovered issue.

The final version of Yosemite is expected alongside some new product and software announcements at Apple's next press event, being held at the company's own Town Hall auditorium on October 16, a week from today. New iPads, technology demonstrations of Apple Pay and the formal release of OS X 10.10 Yosemite are expected to be announced. Yosemite offers a handful of features that work in conjunction with iOS 8, such as the ability to receive or make phone calls or send SMS text messages from a Yosemite-running Mac.

Registered Apple developers can obtain the new seed by signing in on the Mac Dev Center page on Apple's website, or by using the Mac App Store's Software Update function. The most recent Public Beta version was released on Tuesday, and is unaffected by today's update.

GM candidate? it used to be that there were RC (release candidate) and the actual GM was the final copy before it got sent for "printing" and no changes were made unless a critical flaw was discovered
