safaripreviewiconApple today released a new update for Safari Technology Preview, the experimental browser Apple first introduced on March 30. Apple uses Safari Technology Preview to test features that may eventually be introduced in the release version of Safari.

Safari Technology Preview release 5 includes a bug fixes and updates for JavaScript, CSS, web APIs, Web Inspector, media, security, networking, and accessibility.

The Safari Technology Preview update is available through the Mac App Store to anyone who has downloaded the browser. Full release notes are available on Apple's Safari Technology Preview website.

Apple's goal with Safari Technology Preview is to gather feedback from developers and users on its browser development process. Safari Technology Preview can be run side-by-side with the existing Safari browser and while aimed at developers, it does not require a developer account to download.

The release notes for each release of this project are a thing of beauty. If only they did this for their released products.

So is this going to get a final release at some point?
Nope, they'll throw all the advances away at the end of the year and start all over again.

Everyone knows you don't produce release notes for toys, it just confuses the youngsters. So once the engineers turn this over to marketing, say goodby to common sense. It then becomes all about style. Your jeans don't have release notes.
True, though our jeans don't develop certain bugs as time goes on that can be fixed with an OTA update. Knowing which of those bugs are fixed and which features are changed is something that even youngsters would appreciate. The notes were never shown on the main screen unless you clicked on the link anyway, so being all about style seems presumptive.
I do sense however, that you would appreciate release notes, as would I. For me, that is a large part of beta testing. Knowing what was fixed so you may move on to other areas to test. Sure wish they would bring back the notes.

Is this in Mac App Store? I cannot find it on my Mac. Need to manually download the update everytime.
After downloading it from the Safari for Developers website it should update through the MAS.
