Possible to update BB10 Alpha on Mac?

Hi, 

 

The page for upgrading the BB10 alpha seems to ask you to download the latest desktop manager for Windows (even if you are on a Mac).

 

For Mac users, is there a way to upgrade to the new BB10 release?

 

Thanks!

@BlackberryDev tweeted earlier today that a Mac version was in the works I believe.  But no news yet.  I still haven't been able to update my DevAlpha even on Windows!

This is a real pain RIM!

 

Why don't you just use the PlayBook OS / BB10 built-in capabilities of updating the OS. I have a Mac, you have a great NDK for Mac, everything works fine. I just can't get the BB10DevAlpha upgraded. 

 

This is a real pain. Please fix this.

The Desktop Manager with the update for the Mac is live now, and it's working (unlike Windows)!!!

I was on Bundle 188, so first it updated me to 197, and after my DevAlpha restarted and reconnected, it found todays update.  It's installing now!
