please!When the installer finishes downloading, I plan to perform a diff to find out the differences.
From my post in the El Capitan Release Time? thread:
The release in the App Store is version 15A284 and the GM Candidate was 15A282a.
Here's the download page:
Wow it is such a huge difference for me. I am running now a 4K monitor + my macbook pro 2015 with iris pro without any animation lags !!! I already tried the GM version but there wasn't a significant improvement so I would never ever expect such a big difference to the public release.
Maybe it is because I did a clean install but I don't think so because I didn't really have much apps or data on it..
Click Apple > About This Mac.
Click the TEXT that reads Version 10.11. A build number will be added to the end.
That build number should read 15A284.
Anything else and it isn't the public release of OS X El Capitan 10.11.0.
I'm on version 15A279b, but Software Update isn't giving me the option to upgrade. Is there no beta->public release path?
You need to download the main release from the App Store, as if upgrading from Yosemite.
As I keep explaining to people if you try the beta of a release, then you're on the beta path. You're supposed to upgrade to the next beta, which is currently 10.11.1.
