    Apple today released an OS X El Capitan Beta Supplemental Update, with the release notes indicating it "fixes an issue that may cause some 32-bit apps to quit unexpectedly."

    The update is appearing for users on both the third developer beta, which was seeded on Wednesday, and the public beta released yesterday.

    With the start of public beta testing, a wider audience now has access to OS X El Capitan, which is planned for a full public release in the fall, presumably around the October timeframe Apple has used for OS X updates the past several years.

    I was hoping this would fix Outlook crashing, but it does not.

    Anxiously awaiting the install - there are a couple of apps that just won't start up at all.

    That was quick! Glad to see them rushing things like this out.

    Need an update for iTunes too, one that hands rearranging icons on the iPad (iTunes still has the 3x3 folders).

    I was hoping this too. Need Outlook but really don't want to be re-building anytime soon... :-(

    In case nobody has already noted, Developer Beta 3 is build 15A216g , and This Public Beta initial build is 15A215h -- This new Public Beta 3.10 Build is 15A216g, exactly the same build number as Developer Beta 3!! It's the same one!!

    My Apple Mail crashes all the time, and still did even right after this update. Messages freezes once in a while too, but at least it never crashes.

    Doesn't fix issues where most Java apps freeze upon launch (e.g., CrashPlan).

    Then why did the developer beta 3 build get the supplemental update unless these updates don't increase the build numbers for certain builds?

    Java is not supported (Java SE6) Apple dropped it in El Capitan -- my Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 will not even load for this reason.

    This supplemental update brings the public beta up to 15A216g, same build as Developer Build 3, released last week. This supplemental update raises the build number from 15A215h to 15A216g, but does nothing to the Developer Beta 3, which does not need this.

    Also, I'm on the Public Beta. The update did not raise the build number—still on 15A215h.

    Developer Beta 3 was released two days ago on Wed, not last week. It was released as 15A216g.

    I was asked to install this specific update on all of my beta 3 builds. I'm guessing Apple is pushing the same update to all betas, regardless of developer and public betas and doesn't increase the build number for developer beta 3.

    Hojx just said it is the same build for his Public beta. So it really isn't consistent.

    The supplemental update raised my El Capitan build number from 15A215h to 15A216g -- I checked before and after the install. I had Developer Beta 3 installed previously, and the build was 15A216g, same number as after installing this supplemental update. Installing the initial public beta 1 lowered my build number to 15A215h

    Oh, the irony. It doesn't just contain the word "Crash," it's actually called CrashPlan.

    Downloaded El Capitan but have not loaded yet to see what problems other are having. I think I'll wait for the next Beta release.

    Anybody know if it is working in Parallels 10?

    A week can seem like a long time, right??

    How did you install Public Beta 1 over your Developer Beta 3? I'm wondering if your build number changes has to do with you having installed DP3 previously.
    Will need someone else with Public Beta 1 build number raised to confirm this.

    Was anyone able to fix the Mail app crashing? Very frustrating...

    Small interface change seems to have gone unnoticed--new button design in toolbars with a more three-dimensional quality:

    Yeah a subtle gradient has been added rather than having a flat white base in OS X Yosemite.

    I'm not sure if it was this little update or the Public Beta 1 which I installed one day ago, but my mac just crashed to a black screen saying something about not turning off properly and it rebooted. Should I be worried?
