Apple Releases OS X Yosemite Mail Update for Developers and Public Beta Testers

Apple today released a new version of Mail for OS X Yosemite, fixing an issue that could prevent users from composing a message. The update is available to all developers with the Yosemite Developer Preview installed, as well as public beta testers.

The software can be downloaded through the software update function of the Mac App Store.

A new public beta version of Yosemite and Yosemite Developer Preview 8 were released last week, on Monday. The software is expected to continue on in its beta testing phase until late October, when it will be released to the public.

OS X Yosemite brings several new features to the operating system, including Continuity, which offers unprecedented integration between iOS and OS X. The operating system also includes a complete visual overhaul with a flatter iOS 7-style look.

Its horrible UI design is a giant bug that needs to be squashed.

Wow, this is the first time I've ever seen a core app (minus iTunes and Safari) being updated separately in Software Update.

OS X Yosemite is a Monumental Release so the boxes need to be ticked 100%

Wow, this is the first time I've ever seen a core app (minus iTunes and Safari) being updated separately in Software Update.


Just one more indication OS X Yosemite will have less bugs compared to other releases when it is set free to the public.

I didn't have problems with Mail in Yosemite, but installed the update just the same. Glad to see Apple being this proactive.

Hope if fixes the memory runaway problem. Several times it has eaten up all of my memory. Activity Monitor was showing 64GB in use for Mail. It has happen more since DP8. Fingers crossed.

Then you must have missed the multiple times that Apple was forced to update mail under OS X Mavericks when it debut last year.

Excuse me? I've been using Macs for over 20 years. Yosemite's UI design is far below the standard that Apple has set for itself over the years. I'm not sure why they are changing to this "elegant, bright look", but it is a big step backwards in terms of a comfortable usable interface. The new Finder icon alone is a glaring example of just how far off-course they have veered from years past. There's plenty of other examples that I could present as evidence, if you need more.

This 20MB update took over 20 minutes to install. I sure am not happy with how the Software Update mechanism inside the App Store app works. I preferred the older standalone application.

When I saw Yosemite for a first time at a keynote, all I was thinking, was jumping on a beta ship immediately, and it was the first time that I decided to run an OS X beta version or any OS beta version for that matter, Yosemite's new design was/is that cool to me.:)

You should be able to make calls on your Mac now via your phone, if you are running Yosemite and iOS 8.


I'm missing 10.10 right now, waiting for GM to be released....
