Apple Releases New OS X 10.11 El Capitan Betas to Developers and Public Testers
Apple on Monday seeded the eighth beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan to developers for testing. The release took place about two weeks after the release of the seventh OS X 10.11 beta and more than two months after the official announcement of the operating system at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference back in June. Alongside OS X El Capitan Beta 8 for developers, the guys from Cupertino seeded OS X El Capitan Beta 6 for the members of the public testing program. Both versions are identical in terms of design and functionality.
The latest OS X 10.11 El Capitan beta has a build number 15A279b. Just like previous betas, it contains a wide number of stability and performance improvements. Apart from the enhancements introduced in previous builds, for example, tweaks for Safari and Spotlight, the latest beta can boast of only bug fixes. And that’s not strange since 10.11 is only an under-the-hood update.
If you have a developer account or if you’re a member of Apple’s public testing program, you can download the latest beta of OS X 10.11 El Capitan right now. It is available wither from Apple’s dev portal or via the Software Update section of the Mac App Store.
Although this version of Apple’s operating system is quite stable, it is still not recommended to install it on your main computer as it may cause compatibility issues.
