OS X Mountain Lion Developer Preview Updated. Adds Ability To Hide All Alerts (And Banners).


Following the seeding of OS X Mountain Lion (Developer Preview 3) towards the end of last month, Apple earlier this week pulled the wraps off a newly updated version of its OS X Mountain Lion Developer Preview.

Set to become available to the public in its final form later this year, OS X Mountain Lion (Developer Preview 3) now includes the addition of a “Do Not Disturb” option, for those who may wish to turn off the OS’s new ‘Notification Center’ and all the sounds and pop-up notifications that come with it.

The feature is activated simply by the click of a ‘moon’ type icon found in the top right corner of Mountain Lion’s desktop screen, providing a one-click silent environment for those who need to concentrate on what they’re doing, without being disturbed.
