Apple Seeds First OS X 10.11.1 El Capitan Beta to Developers

Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming OS X El Capitan update to developers, two weeks before OS X El Capitan will be released to the public on September 30.

The new beta, build 15B17c, is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store and through the Apple Developer Center.

It is not clear what improvements the first update to OS X El Capitan will bring, but it's likely to include bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that have been encountered following the operating system's official release.

Update: OS X 10.11.1 includes support for Unicode 8 and a range of new emoji like taco, burrito, cheese wedge, hot dog, middle finger, and unicorn head. The emoji are also included in iOS 9.1, which is currently in testing as well.

Good idea.

End users should only use beta software if they're 100% comfortable with trading stability for a preview of what's coming up.

Why would you do beta testing if you can't handle the pressure?

Actually, end users should only use beta software if they want to help submit bugs to improve the beta.

Weird. Thought we'd get another GM candidate first.

This has nothing to do with Apple not caring about QC. I believe Apple has advanced enough version control systems to be able to fix RC while continuing on the OS (in fact, they are probably far away working on 10.12 as well). The fact that they are working on OSX 10.11.1 doesn't mean they are finished with the RC. And all the stuff they are fixing for the RC will come into the final version of 10.11.1 as well. The only thing this means is that Apple is efficient and has moved a certain amount of the OSX team that were redundant over to the next version while some remains fixing the last hickups of the RC version. Anything else would be strange and why would they wait to release the RC if they dont work on it? Also, any serious software developer work this way.

Question for you guys. Currently am a developer. Have 10.11 GM installed on my machine. With this machine that is far as I want to go with it. Do not want to put anymore betas on it. In the App Store there is as update for 10.11.1. Anyway to remove this? So it is not asking me to put betas on anymore? Just on this machine. I only want to be asked to put the final version of 10.11 on when it gets released on the 30th. Any help is appreciated. Thanks :)


Try system preferences > App Store. I remember in some of the older versions of os x there was a button to stop receiving pre-release software
