Apple Releases First OS X 10.11.4 El Capitan Beta to Public Beta Testers

OS X El Capitan LogoApple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.4 beta to public beta testers, just a few days after releasing the first OS X 10.11.4 beta to developers and more than a month after releasing OS X 10.11.2.

The new beta is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store for those who are enrolled in Apple's beta testing program. Those wishing to join the program can sign up on Apple's beta testing website.

OS X 10.11.4 has been provided to developers and public beta testers alongside OS X 10.11.3, which is also currently in testing. Apple has provided testers with two betas of OS X 10.11.3, and it could be released to the public shortly.

Both OS X 10.11.3 and OS X 10.11.4 appear to focus largely on under-the-hood bug fixes, security enhancements, and performance optimizations with few noticeable outward-facing changes. OS X 10.11.4 does support password protected notes in the Notes app, allowing a password to be assigned to individual notes.

System Preferences should give users the option to change the green buttons behaviour;

* Fullscreen
* Maximize (a la MS Windows)
* Enlarge to maximum area required (but doesnt fill the screen entirely)

10.11.5 will come out next week.


It's possible if they have overlapping betas from now on that beta users never EXIT beta, ever.

I hope they fix safari eventually. It has been so buggy for the past couple of releases that I can't even use it anymore. I like to use top sites and it works for awhile but then stops responding to input and I have to quit the whole browser to get it to respond again

I can no longer connect using OpenVPN, only IPSec (don't use Cisco though). Negotiations choke at the same point as above.

I just filed a report via the Feedback Assistant. Hopefully this gets fixed very soon.

In the meantime if anyone finds a workaround please share. Thanks!
