Apple Seeds Fourth OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan Beta to Developers and Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the fourth beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.5 El Capitan update to developers and public beta testers, one week after releasing the third OS X 10.11.5 beta and more than a month after releasing OS X 10.11.4, the fourth update to the El Capitan operating system. OS X 10.11.5 has been in testing since April 6.

The fourth beta of OS X 10.11.5 can be downloaded through the software update mechanism in the Mac App Store or through the Apple Developer Center (developers only).

OS X 10.11.5 focuses on security enhancements, performance improvements, and bug fixes to address problems that have surfaced since the release of OS X 10.11.4. As with prior betas, the changes appear to be minor in scope, and no obvious outward-facing tweaks have been discovered in the first three OS X 10.11.5 betas.

We'll update this post if any new features are found in the fourth beta.

Till now I haven't seen any bug fixes related to Finder. These betas are fast becoming irrelevant.

Encountered a strange problem.
As well as the OS X beta update, there was an update to XCode.

I'm not sure if it's related to the beta, but there's an anomaly with the update for XCode.
The update wouldn't work, so I cancelled it.
I uninstalled XCode, or thought I did because I'd 'removed' it using Launchpad.
Xcode.app was for some reason still on the disk.
Xcode is no longer listed in Launchpad, yet Launchpad has begun to download the should be canceled update without permission.

Thankfully, going into the 'Purchases' tab of the App Store allowed me to abort the download.
I had problems with XCode update too. First it updated the app, but App Store didn't register it so in Purchased tab XCode was stuck at waiting. So I uninstalled and now I am downloading it at abysmal speed. And one more thing that bugs me is that in mac App Store XCode icon is missing, it's just white space.

I had an odd wifi issue where I'd have to restart my MBP to fix it since the prior public beta. Hopefully this fixes it!
