Apple Seeds Second OS X 10.11.6 El Capitan Beta to Public Beta Testers

Apple today seeded the second beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.6 beta to public beta testers, one day after releasing the second OS X 10.11.6 beta to developers. OS X 10.11.6 has been in testing since May 23 and the second beta comes three weeks after the public release of OS X 10.11.5, the fifth update to the El Capitan operating system.

Beta 2 is available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store for those who are enrolled in Apple's beta testing program. Mac users who want to join the program can sign up on Apple's beta testing website.

OS X 10.11.6, like most of the previous updates to the El Capitan operating system, appears to be minor in scale, focusing mainly on bug fixes and security improvements that are not immediately obvious to testers and developers. No outward-facing changes or major bug fixes were discovered in the first two developer betas.

I'm just gonna hold out for the 10.12 beta, even if it'll be buggy.

In my opinion mission control needs to die, and Expose and Spaces needs to come back. It still doesn't compare 4 years later.


Strongly disagree, the inclusion of multiple desktops and full screen apps with the trackpad gestures and utilising hot corners has drastically increased my workflow with Mission Control.

I wish they would restore functionality that was in 10.6-10.9.


As in...

* Files being fully coloured instead of those nearly invisible coloured dot tags?
* The ability to have 3rd party developers give us proper cut/paste commands in Finder with TotalFinder or XtraFinder?

I'd actually pay to have that functionality... and pay even more to turn off the green button fullscreen CRAP (I work on a 24" monitor, I dont need full screen).

Disk Utility, Save As..., window zoom, advanced color calibration, Finder column view scrolling, Mail.app searching, rootless mode??? really?? and so on.
Everything has a work around with the Option key or a command in the Terminal. But why should it?

This is what OS X should have been back in 98.

Considering OS X didn't ship until 2001, that would be quite an accomplishment.

Mission control with a trackpad is supremely easy to use. I would miss it if it went.
