Apple today seeded the first beta of OS X 10.10.4 to developers, just over a week after releasing OS X 10.10.3 with the Photos for OS X app to the public.

The new beta, build 14E7f, can be downloaded from the Mac Developer Center.

It is not yet clear what's new in the 10.10.4 beta, but according to the release notes, the update "improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac." Earlier OS X Yosemite updates, including OS X 10.10.1 and OS X 10.10.2 brought only minor changes to the operating system in the form of bug fixes and performance enhancements. OS X 10.10.4 may serve the same purpose.

OS X 10.10.3, released last week, was the first major update to OS X Yosemite that brought new features, including the Photos for OS X app, a redesigned emoji picker, and new diversified emoji.

Very small beta in terms of MB.. Don't expect much people!

It's ~900MB for my '12 rMBP. Not sure why you think it's a small one. Since Photos.app is out, they've probably removed it from the seed and thus, it will be smaller than the previous 10.10.3 betas

Only 600MB for me on my 13" Retina MacBook Pro :p

Wait, 10.10.1 and OS X 10.10.2 included performance improvements? :rolleyes:

...only minor changes to the operating system in the form of bug fixes and performance enhancements.


Both did decrease the CPU usage of WindowServer for me, which is considered as performance improvements.

10.10.3 got a nice boost IMO. Hopefully, 10.10.4 continues that progress.

Snow Leopard took a long time to get it perfect, the original release wasn't that great.

Safari wasn't updated, so no update in that area.

I think you are (partly) wrong, see screenshot:

No, it's not working fine, I still have WIFI issues, also on other routers.
But, it is better than before.
YOU don't have problems doesn't mean others don't have issues.

I have 2 different model MacBook Pro's, both have been on Yosemite since 10.10.0 and never had a WiFi issue with my router or public ones.

I have been on OS X since 10.0b (yes, the first OS X release more than a decade ago) and never had WIFI issues until 10.10, that says something, no problem before on 10.9 with 3 different routers, now all of them have dropouts/disconnects so it's 10.10 which is the problem, not my routers.

Yes, and because you have issues doesn't mean others also have these issues.

As if buying a new router will fix it, wasting money on something that doesn't work, some good advice you gave in your post. :rolleyes:

I am not claiming most people have WIFI problems, I just say there are still WIFI problems and that is a fact.

Have you gone back to those previous versions to see if you still have the issue or not?
