They must have outsourced Mail and Preview dev to India. They just can't seem to get it right.
As if people could only write a bad code in India and not elsewhere...Get a life.

Fix Preview which is been broken since the initial release. PDF still render pixelated especially if you resize the window, and it still uses ridiculous amounts of RAM.

After the series of usb beta problems with 10.11.2 betas, I am afraid of Apple betas. I used to be first on board with these but they seem to be pushing more and more experimental changes under the hood that are not readily apparent. I wonder what's up with this series....

On another matter, how do they coordinate all of these betas for ios and osx to now always come out about the same day? Do they give each team the same deadline . . ready or not .. go?
