Apple Seeds Third OS X El Capitan 10.11.1 Beta to Developers and Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming OS X El Capitan update to developers and public beta testers for testing purposes, just over one one week after releasing the second OS X 10.11.1 beta and a week after the public release of OS X El Capitan on September 30.

The new beta, build 15B30a, is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store and through the Apple Developer Center.

10_11_1_beta_3
The first beta of OS X 10.11.1 introduced support for a range of new emoji included in Unicode 8, like cheese wedge, taco, burrito, popcorn, middle finger, unicorn head, and more. Other betas appear to include under-the-hood fixes that are not immediately apparent.

It is not clear what the first update to OS X El Capitan will bring to the new OS aside from updated emoji, but it's likely to be a minor update that includes bug fixes and performance improvements for issues encountered following the operating system's official release. According to Apple's release notes, the beta offers stability, compatibility, and security improvements.

676 MB again via Mac App Store for L2011 MacBook Pro 15.

Worth it for that middle finger icon alone.

Are we going to have taco and fu emoji's mentioned on every new beta from now on? If it's a joke, the joke is played out. In any case, hoping for some Audio Unit bugs attention soon....


They are getting almost as worn as "Safari is snappier"

Outlook 2011 is still broken, but not quite as much. It beach-balls part way through sync'ing new inbox messages. Before, it would hang earlier.

BTW, I think Apple is just as guilty as Microsoft for this issue. Apple should have made sure it didn't break in the first place.

.... um. beta.

it's what it's for.

can't stand the heat.. you know where to go.

It is not Apple's responsibility to make sure applications by other developers are compatible with their operating system. If Apple had to go around making sure every other developers software is compatible with their operating system, The operating system would never get released.

That is why they have developers build. So the developers have time to make sure their applications are compatible with the new operating system. If the developers applications get broken in the new operating system once it's released it is the developer's fault for dragging their tales and not getting it done. Same thing applies to Microsoft. It is not Microsoft responsibility to make sure Applications by other developers are compatible with their operating system.

What apps? Did Console.app say that SIP blocked these apps from installing? SIP is not an issue, it's a security feature meant to prevent apps from writing to specific system locations. If your apps haven't been updated to comply with SIP rules, you should contact the vendor, Apple will not fix this.


Or they can disable SIP in about a minute if they really want to. If you know how to be carefull SIP isn't for everyone. I mean we were fine for all the years and OSX versions that didn't have SIP till now. The world didn't come to and end and no ones computer exploded because they didn't have SIP.
