Apple’s OS X 10.9 Mavericks will ship this fall, bringing better performance and battery life along with several welcome interface changes, such as tabbed Finder windows, dual full-screen app views, and tags for files.

It also includes the first Mac OS version of iBooks with sync support for iOS devices, a desktop version of Apple’s Maps that syncs locations with your iPhone, iCloud Keychain (password) syncing, and more.

Also, there’ll be no more cat names for Apple’s operating systems; Mavericks is a popular surfing spot near Half Moon Bay south of San Francisco.

And of course, Quark’s QuarkXPress 10 will support Mavericks!
