Apple Seeds First OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan Beta to Developers

OS X El Capitan LogoApple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan update to developers for testing purposes, just over two weeks after releasing OS X 10.11.4, the fourth major update to the OS X 10.11 operating system.

The new OS X 10.11.5 update can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center.

We don't yet know what improvements the fifth update to OS X El Capitan will bring, but like prior updates, it's likely to focus on security enhancements, performance improvements, and bug fixes to address issues that have been discovered since the release of OS X 10.11.4. We'll update this post with any changes that are discovered in the beta.

Steve is rolling in his grave!Why so many betas? When Steve was alive there have been no beta releases.

Still rocking my Jaguar iMac G4! Stable as hell! Apple is going down the drain.

Now where is my Bull cassette cartridge.


Steve also didn't want an App store for the iPhone. Originally.

He was not always right, you know.

You have to love these betas where it's up to random users to discover the changelog.
I mean, Apple definitely doesn't have the resources to publish a changelog.
Poor macrumors and its obligatory "We'll update this post with any changes that are discovered in the beta" each time there is a new beta...

and no they didn't "fix" green button maximize. there's nothing to 'fix" as it isn't broken. maximize by double clicking the title bar.


It's definitely broken. I work on a 24" monitor. My laptop is 17" with a resolution of 1920x1200. I don't need nor do I care for 'full screen' that hides the menu bar. I work in the Adobe Creative Suite every day and need access to the menu bar along with the dock menu to switch between illustrator/indesign/photoshop (among other apps). I am NOT going to swipe between all full screen apps either as that is asinine and counter productive to true multitasking when dragging/dropping objects/files between apps.

So yeah, the green button is definitely broken. Badly. It's a miserable nightmare. More importantly, it's an easy fix if apple just got it's head out of it's ass and added a simple option in System Preference to let the user decide how the green button behaves. I'll raise the stakes even; let the current behaviour remain as default just to satisfy you. But AT LEAST give me the option to change this garbage.
