    God help me if I have to run M$ Office 2011 on a VM...

    Might work OK for Bento (RIP) though. Definitely preferable to spending an incredibly tedious day importing data into Google Sheets and creating Saved Filter Views in lieu of smart folders.

    According to Apple developer site, beta 3 is still the latest with build number: 19A501i. My macs cannot find a newer version either.

    Do you have Catalina? This article is about Mojave. I think 19A501i is the build number for 10.15 beta 3.

    If it makes the Majave final build perfectly stable, I’d call that MAJOR.
    Stability is THE most important feature of any OS imo.

    Because stability has been such an issue with Mojave, it's the first OS since 2005 (not counting Classic in the 90's) that I've waited until the final update to upgrade (from High Sierra), so I couldn't agree more.

    And with the death of 32-bit support, it might be another year before I upgrade to Catalina.

    I personally haven't had any stability issues with Mojave, but that doesn't mean there aren't any. What kind of symptoms have you experienced?

    I updated to 10.14.5, and it was slow and glitchy, so I rolled back to the buttery smooth 10.13.6. The point updates this year have prioritized adding new features and services, so I'm hoping this final point update will prioritize housekeeping to sweep up the bugs, and optimize the system before moving on to 10.15.

    I also understand that the Gmail issue introduced in 10.14.4 can be solved by deleting each Google internet account, and then adding them back (although not sure if they should be added as Google or Other type).
