Along with a new iOS beta, Apple has seeded OS X 10.10.3 build 14D98 to developers on Tuesday. Developers can download the beta from the Software Update tool within the Mac App Store to check out the new software.

Most notably, new APIs have been added to OS X that support Force Touch included on the MacBook Pro and MacBook.

Other changes, described by the release notes:

  • Accelerators. Pressure sensitivity in the trackpad enables apps to give users greater control. For instance the fast-forward button in media playback can speed up as pressure increases.
  • Pressure sensitivity. Drawing and other creative apps can take advantage of the pressure-sensing capabilities of the trackpad to make lines thicker or give the brush a changing style.
  • Drag and Drop. Apps can add the springLoaded property to their controls so they can react to a Force click gesture while in the middle of performing a drag, for instance to immediately open a new target for the drop.

Also found:

  • A new look-up feature. Now you can look-up text and it will show suggestions from iTunes App Store, movie show times, and more, using your location to show relevant information.

Past OS X 10.10.3 builds have contained Apple’s new Photos app, two-step Gmail login within Mail, and diverse emojis. It’s suspected the software on Thursday continues updating these new feature.

        I believe it is a specific developer seed not public.
