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.

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.

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....

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.
