I have installed Maverick (OS 10.9). I have confirmed this by checking with "About this Mac". However, I only have version 7.0 of Preview, but I understand that the latest version of Preview is 8.0. How do I get this? I should add that I have searched for it, but I couldn't find it anywhere.

    Yes, that's what I said. I have Maverick and Preview 7.0. My question was, "How do I get Preview 8.0"? i ask that because some of the blogs I have read say that 8.0 is the latest version of Preview.

    I have Mavericks with all available updates, where do they say it should be 8.0 ?.

    Maybe I was wrong. I see "Preview 8" as part of the titles of many links, but maybe they are not referring to Apple's Preview. There is a Window 8 version, and I have seen "Preview 8" in several other places (Look for yourself), and I saw "

    Apple Releases OS X Mavericks Developer Preview 8

    but maybe none of them were saying that the latest version of Preview is "8".

     

    In any event, I won't bother looking for version 8 anymore. I have never been able to use the existing versions, so when I thought that there was  a newer version, I thought it would be worth looking into. I was hoping that it would be something that I could use. Now, I'll just forget about Preview and maybe the project that I was told I could do with Preview.

    I see now - you're right that those were announcements of release 8 of the Mavericks 'seed' or 'developer preview'.
