OS X Mavericks Developer Preview 5 includes a pre-release version of iPhoto for the purpose of testing compatibility with Mavericks.
- Opening your Photo Library with this pre-release version of iPhoto will permanently upgrade it and make it incompatible with current versions of iPhoto and Aperture.
- This pre-release version of iPhoto will only upgrade libraries from iPhoto version 8.x and later.
- Photos with GPS locations will be marked with pins on the map in Places. However, searching for locations using the Places map may return only partial results, or may not display any results.
- The Help system is not fully enabled. Searches using the Help Center will return limited results.
- Localization is not yet complete, so some text may not be displayed correctly in certain languages.
- Photo Stream updates will not be registered to your Mac after installing OS X Developer Preview 5. To enable Photo Stream you can either restart your Mac or launch iPhoto with the library connected to the Photo Stream.
- Make sure all photos that appear in My Photo Stream have been imported into your iPhoto Library before using this pre-release version of iPhoto.
- Attempting to use My Photo Stream or iCloud Photo Sharing with an earlier version of iPhoto or Aperture after using these features with this pre-release software may cause some streamed photos or data to be displayed incorrectly. Disabling and re-enabling Photo Stream on your Mac will resolve the issue.Installation
