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

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

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

OS X 10.11.1, like iOS 9.1, includes support for a range of new emoji like cheese wedge, taco, burrito, popcorn, middle finger, unicorn head, and more. New emoji were introduced in the first OS X 10.11.1 beta. Subsequent betas have not included any other outward-facing changes.

It is unknown what the first update to OS X El Capitan will bring aside from updated emoji, but as a minor .1 update, it's likely to focus primarly on bug fixes and performance improvements for issues encountered following the operating system's official release. According to Apple's beta release notes, OS X 10.11.1 offers stability, compatibility, and security improvements.

Uh how long have you been using computers? It's not a Fad. Emojis have been used in emails since the 90's.

Emojis ≠ Emoticons. ;-)

Amen. It's almost as bad as the selfie fad.

I wish everyone would just stop banging on about emoji support - MacRumours should stop bringing this minor detail in the latest beta news update, and people should stop whining.

The whole thing is ridiculous - there's probably a single guy/gal at Apple who occasionally adds support for the latest Unicode standard (of which emoji are the tiny part) to the system font in OS X / iOS. That's all! Nobody is distracted from any other work, bug-fixes are not affected, and people who work at creating fonts are not the same people fixing bugs in code!

Um.... http://www.zdnet.com/article/os-x-10-11-el-capitan-bugs-bugs-and-more-bugs/


If your criteria for upgrades revolves around people complaining on Apple's support forums - you will never be able to upgrade! The said forums are always full of people reporting bugs, because that's what they are for. People who don't experience bugs don't write about it.

Myself, I found El Capitan a noticeable improvement without any compatibility issues. It's great.

It's pity that Apple would focus .1 for happy faces. How about actually fixing "under the hood?"


You think they've released 4 betas of a x.x.1 update on emojis?

What? This fad won't be over. It started with the ancient Egyptians who used emojis exclusively. We're now just getting back to square one.
