Apple today seeded the second beta of OS X 10.10.4 to developers, approximately a week and a half since releasing the first 10.10.4 beta and nearly three weeks after releasing OS X 10.10.3 with the Photos for OS X app to the public. Alongside the new developer beta, Apple also released the first public beta version of OS X 10.10.4.

Developers can download the new beta, build 14E11f, through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store or through the Mac Developer Center.

OS X 10.10.3 introduced several consumer-facing changes including the new Photos for OS X app, a redesigned emoji picker, new diversified emoji, and more, but OS X 10.10.4 appears to be an under-the-hood update that brings performance enhancements and bug fixes.

The first two updates to OS X Yosemite, OS X 10.10.1 and OS X 10.10.2 were also minor behind-the-scenes updates that improved performance through bug fixes and enhancements.

They really seem to be striving to align OSX and iOS release schedules ... almost to the day.

Wonder why the iOS 9 and OSX 10.11 front has been so quiet.

they fixed some Kernel issue for the 2015 13“ MBPro and the update should also fix an issue with setting up the 12“ macbook. Nothing on the outside.

I'm afraid to ask, but will they finally fix wifi? :eek:

I'm still randomly losing connection but I've discovered a pattern. As soon as I do something that doesn't require the internet, the wifi goes. For example, If I'm working in Pages and quickly want to look something up, wifi = gone.

Is that really how bad it is for you? Is this what others have been experiencing? Crazy!

Which wireless router do you connect to? Which frequency are you using – 2.4GHz or 5GHz? What channel are you using – automatic selection or a specific one? How many other wifi networks are surrounding you? Do you have Bluetooth turned on even if you don't need it?

Probably because of the tighter integration they have now.

It's almost as if the .x has the same codeset/codebase.

10.10.x and 8.x

I'm a rolling stone.
Hope this beta is better than the last one, haven't had kernel panics for ages, the one I am on now had kernel panics almost everyday, and some processes crashed as well.
See how this one goes.
But, to be fair, for me WIFI has been stable for the first time since OS X 10.10.0 betas.

Wake On Network or LAN

Can someone test this? Using iTunes home sharing as the media server. Wake On Network hasn't been working on Yosemite.

I guess it's easier to keep software updates quiet. That and iOS 9 was rumoured to be largely a performance/footprint upgrade.

I'm just interested in the new streaming service, but wasn't that meant to be part of 8.4? Or will there be an 8.5?

That must suck. Did you try disabling Bluetooth, Refreshing the discoveryd service, or a complete erase install.
Of course I don't have this issue since Handoff is not officially supported on my Mac (Using Continuity Activation Tool)

We will find out about the next OS releases in June at WWDC. But let's start the guessing game on the name for OSX --

Death Valley
Kilauea
Monument Valley
Niagara Falls
Redwoods
Grand Canyon
Mammoth Cave
