Apple Releases First OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan Beta to Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the first beta of OS X 10.11.2 El Capitan to public beta testers, just days after releasing the first beta to developers and just over a week after the public launch of OS X El Capitan 10.11.1.

The new beta is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store to 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.

It's not yet known what improvements the latest update to OS X El Capitan will bring, but it's likely to include bug fixes, security enhancements, and performance improvements to address issues discovered since the release of OS X 10.11.1. Apple's release notes for the first developer beta asked testers to focus on Graphics, Wi-Fi, Calendar, USB, Notes, Photos, and Spotlight.

Has anyone who was having Mail problems seen an improvement in 10.11.2?
What about those of us not having trouble? What makes us different from those who are? I have a GMail account, an iCloud email account, and a Yahoo email account all working perfectly well with El Capitan. I didn’t lose any folders, any archived mail, none of the reported problems others have.

Things like this have always fascinated me.

Scrolling through Facebook freezes my whole system (except the cursor). Reboot via the power button is my only way out. 10.11.1 didn't help me at all.

Do not go to Facebook.
