OS X El Capitan

Apple on Wednesday released the seventh OS X El Capitan beta to developers. The new build is available to registered developers via the Updates section of the Mac App Store or through Apple’s Developer Center.

Today’s update comes just over two weeks after Apple pushed out the sixth beta of OS X El Capitan, and well over two months after its initial release in early June during Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference.

Most of the changes in recent El Capitan betas have been under-the-hood adjustments, rather than significant visual tweaks. And that’s really the theme of the overall update—a focus on reliability and performance.

There will be some user-facing changes, though, such as a revamped Mission Control with a new Split Screen mode and enhanced Spotlight features. There’s also a new system-wide font in El Capitan called San Francisco.

We’re installing today’s beta now, and will report back with any major changes. It seems Apple has also made the fifth public beta available again, after pulling it yesterday, so be sure to let us know if we missed anything!
