Apple Releases Third OS X Yosemite Golden Master Candidate to Developers

Apple today released a third golden master candidate of OS X Yosemite to developers, just two days after releasing the second candidate golden master and the fifth public beta. The first golden master candidate was seeded to developers on September 30.

The latest Yosemite update can be downloaded from the Mac App Store and through Apple's Mac Developer Center.

OS X Yosemite brings a flatter, more modern look to OS X, with an emphasis on translucency and redesigned dock, windows, and more. It also includes a multitude of new features, such as improved integration with iOS 8 through Continuity, a new "Today" view in Notification Center that offers integration with third-party apps, a retooled Spotlight search with new data sources, and several new features for apps like Mail, Safari, and Messages.

Over the course of the beta testing period, each Developer Preview has added new features and refined the look and performance of OS X Yosemite, although changes have become less obvious in more recent builds as Apple begins finalizing Yosemite ahead of its public release, which is expected in late October.

The current build, like the previous golden master candidate, may not be the final version of OS X Yosemite, depending on the outcome of final testing. Last year, Apple seeded multiple golden master versions of OS X Mavericks, with the final version coming a couple of days ahead of the software's public release.

lol, they *still* haven't fixed this extremely visible bug. I guess everyone at Apple uses the transparency.

I predict another GM candidate on Monday.


So what's the bug?

So, don't click "reduce transparency"?


You're joking right?

What's wrong with this? Now it looks like on iOS.

But there is a glitch on the Time Machine screen.


What's the bug?


Here's a more obvious picture for you.

Continuity and handoff now work flawlessly for me. As soon as I open up Safari on my iPhone, I see the icon on my Mac's dock. As soon as I close Safari or put the phone to sleep, the icon disappears. Also, SMS messaging is back for me.

Edit: Also, there appears to be icons in the top right corder of the Safari icon for Handoff depending upon if you're using an iPhone or an iPad.

Maybe I should have taken a bigger screenshot. It's the black corners.
