Apple Seeds First OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite Beta to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming OS X 10.10.1 Yosemite update to developers, nearly three weeks after first releasing OS X Yosemite to the public.

The new beta, build 14B17, is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store and through the Mac Dev Center.

While it is unclear what improvements the first update to OS X Yosemite will bring, there are several bugs in the operating system including a major Wi-Fi issue that has caused connection problems for a number of users.

Apple is asking developers to focus on Wi-Fi, Exchange accounts in Mail, and the Notification Center.

Just don't understand how working code in Mavericks never made it into Yosemite. Like Wifi worked in Mavericks, why isn't it working in Yosemite? Did they purposely break the code?

All these working sub systems, battery, graphics, etc...now having problems don't make any sense to me.

Someone like to explain?

It's not that simple. Yosemite has a lot of changes under the hood including iOS style wifi airdrop, iPhone hotspot configure, continuity, etc. who knows the exact path a wifi bug can take. It's a bug.

Here's hoping for a fix for the rMBP freezing with graphics switching.

Very nice, very nice. Apart from incidental GUI animation choppiness (which can be indeed quite frustrating sometimes), I found Yosemite to be very solid and stable. I'm looking forward to see how the updates will hopefully make it even more polished. I'm definitely not going back to Mavericks. ;)
