So when will it be reissued?
I don't see why Apple would release a free-user PUBLIC beta before a developer beta, given developers have always had early access, and they pay $99/year to have this kind of such early access!
Anything. I suspect that an issue was found at the last moment that warranted waiting a day (or whatever) to fix it. I'd rather have Apple realize it, pull it, and fix it then let it slip through and say, 'oh well, we'll fix it in the next update'. This is especially true if the problem was critical (mail doesn't work, can't access settings, etc.).
My guess is that this is the reason.
I don't know but if a lot of people already downloaded Public Beta 5 then might as well release it even if it was a mistake. Next time they can give DP priority again.
Well, one it was a slip up, and two the Public builds are usually one build behind. They have the same consumer facing features, however the dev build is technically newer. Every DB and PB for both Yosemite and El Cap have been like this.
Security hole in the mere minutes after releasing the update? Extremely not likely, these are the things they review before they say yes to releasing the build, they have a checklist and go-ahead from various teams before releasing builds.
My guess is that it was an accidental release, Apple almost never released a new PB before the DB. I think someone got something mixed up and then flipped the switch to pull the build. They're taking the time to re-run the review and make sure everything's good to go.
In my theory, it's possible the build they released had a security hole (that's only an example) so they pulled it back to fix it, but it ended up getting accidentally being pushed out anyway. IIRC, there was one point in the Yosemite Public Beta where we did get 2 PB updates between 2 DB released but they were both based off similar builds. I could be wrong, but I remember something like that last year.
I just want this to turn off the shake to find mouse feature. So obnoxious.
i have atdl this PB, it works fine though, Adobe AEX works for me.
You can already turn it off. http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/how-to-disable-mouse-shaking-gesture.1906245/
You don't know how happy I am that Apple actually listened to us, and enabled an option to allow DISABLING the shake cursor zooming feature. The deal is so annoying...it's not much a problem on MacBooks, but on a desktop with a Laser Mouse, it can be very annoying. Previously, I could find no way in the OS to disable the feature, which came across as a flaw in the system. I even used Yosemite for the first few builds through and now for the past 2-3 weeks been picking up El Capitan as my primary system...still have a special place in my heart for Yosemite. I like the old system font better too. Easier to see!!
Yes, but when you upgrade to the next DP it removes that and you have to do it again. At least thats how its been for me. Might have to do with the fact that I went from a PB to DP. So with this next update its just a toggle.
Same with my custom screen calibration on my MBA.
Why is it obnoxious?
I lose my mouse cursor many times a day. Say, when it turns to a caret over text and it's similarly colored to the background.
It's SUPPOSED to be easy to see when you shake your mouse.
What are you doing shaking your mouse that you see this all the time?
For whatever reason mine is super sensitive on my iMac, but not MBA. On my iMac just move the cursor really quickly from one side of the screen to the other activates its.
Knowing Apple these days, something was probably broken and bugged.
Interesting. I've only installed El Capitan on my Mac Mini with an external mouse - and it only activates when I want it to.
Maybe it has something to do with the particular mouse? I remember having a Microsoft Mouse at one time that I couldn't stand. The cursor was hard to move in a straight line - it kept jiggling and shaking all the time. Any other movement was fine, just straight lines was bad.
Maybe it's that - or I have to worry when I start installing on other machines?
That's a feature I'm really looking forward to. Certain combinations of apps can make some mouse cursors difficult to see.
Its possible my magic mouse is just faulty. It is really old.
How about "shake mouse to locate update"?
Magic Trackpad on a Mac Pro here. No problems here. I am able to move my cursor between my two monitors really quick and it doesn't explode. Only when I move it side to side really quick in one area does it active it. It hasn't been a big deal one way or the other for me because I haven't really needed to use it.
Anyone have a link to download the public beta 5 file?
You will need to wait until it is officially released. Asking for, and discussing acquiring files outside of proper protocol is against the rules.
I'm a little bit confused here, I take it apple released the public beta then pulled it , then i heard it was released again. but it's not showing up for me, so is it officially pulled until further notice ?
I'm trying to figure out based on these comments.
Well, I think I know why it was withdrawn. I downloaded, installing stalled 8 min before complete. Had to turn the machine off, then it tried again, but luckily it rolled back to the previous version aften 1-2 attempts.
