Mavericks Developer Preview 8 is available - developers, come and get it!

Apple on Monday released Mavericks Developer Preview 8, the latest pre-release build of OS X Mavericks specifically for registered Mac developers. The new release is available for download from the Mac App Store.

As is customary, the information surrounding the developer preview is covered under Apple's non-disclosure agreement with developers. But if you are a registered developer, you can sign in to the Mac App Store and download the new build right away. If you haven't yet installed Mavericks on a test machine, you'll first need to retrieve a download code from Mac Dev Center.

Are you looking forward to Mavericks, either as a developer or a user? What features are you most excited about? If you need a refresher about what's coming, check out iMore's Mavericks preview.
