Apple today released an OS X El Capitan Beta Supplemental Update, with the release notes indicating it "fixes an issue that may cause some 32-bit apps to quit unexpectedly."

The update is appearing for users on both the third developer beta, which was seeded on Wednesday, and the public beta released yesterday.

With the start of public beta testing, a wider audience now has access to OS X El Capitan, which is planned for a full public release in the fall, presumably around the October timeframe Apple has used for OS X updates the past several years.

Doesn't fix issues where most Java apps freeze upon launch (e.g., CrashPlan).
Oh, the irony. It doesn't just contain the word "Crash," it's actually called CrashPlan.

I was hoping this would fix Outlook crashing, but it does not.

Anxiously awaiting the install - there are a couple of apps that just won't start up at all.

I was hoping this too. Need Outlook but really don't want to be re-building anytime soon... :-(
You installed a pub beta on a machine with apps that you need?!
