    Apple today seeded the third beta of OS X 10.10.4 to developers, approximately two weeks after releasing the second OS X 10.10.4 beta and three weeks after releasing the first OS X 10.10.4 beta. OS X 10.10.4 has been in testing since mid-April, following the early April release of OS X 10.10.3, which included the new Photos for OS X app.

    The beta, build 14E17e, can be downloaded through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store or through the Mac Developer Center. Apple is asking developers to focus on Photos, Migration, and Arabic and Hebrew languages.

    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. Thus far, OS X 10.10.4 betas have not included outward facing design changes or feature additions.

    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.

    I tried to rejoin the Beta Program for several days, but the appleseed website seems to have redirecting problems - anyone else having this problem?

    Yup... But I already tried several browsers (Website asks for Apple ID to login -> "Can't load... too many redirections" )

    Lol, so ever since installing one of the original Yosemite betas, the Mac App Store has shown all the developer betas as updates for me.

    I originally thought 10.10.4 was the cause of a bunch of increasingly bad wifi issues, but it's still persistent on 10.10.3. I thought that since maybe that drive/file system has been on 10.10.4 at some point that, I was going to still have problems. Now I'm convinced it's something wrong with the hardware in my 2015 MDA as I tried 10.10.3 on an external disk and and formatted the internal drive with it and it's still giving me problems. My 2010 MacBook reports accurate speeds in comparison now I'm even able to get a better connection in the MBA with using my iPhone as a USB hotspot.

    YES. I'd love to know if they've tweaked Photos some more.
    I usually fall all over myself trying to integrate with Apple's next big thing, but Photos has been among the few I regretted.

    4 hours 29 minutes. MR members must be hammering that server(s) right now. :)

    And now it's down to 2 minutes. That was a quick 4 hours.

    This could be the one that finally fixes the wifi bug...

    The problem with "the wifi bug" is that I doubt it's A bug. It's likely not as simple as that.
