Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming OS X 10.11.4 update to developers for testing purposes, two weeks after seeding the second OS X 10.11.4 beta and three weeks after releasing OS X 10.11.3. OS X 10.11.4 has been in testing since January 11.

The third OS X 10.11.4 beta can be downloaded through the Apple Developer Center or via the Software Update Mechanism in the Mac App Store.

OS X 10.11.4 offers a couple of new features, such as the ability to support password protected notes in the Notes app, but like the recent OS X 10.11.3 update, it appears to focus primarily on under-the-hood bug fixes and performance improvements with few noticeable outward-facing changes. Almost all of Apple's OS X updates to date have been smaller updates that improve performance rather than introduce new features.

We'll update this post with any features or significant changes that are discovered in the third beta of OS X 10.11.4.

It keeps dropping to my synology....

Password protected notes is an interesting idea. It could be used as a free and a simple substitute for a password program like 1Password.

Except that you'd still be copy/pasting passwords instead of integrated shortcuts. The key to 1Password is the workflow advantages that it offers across platforms. iCloud Keychain has taken a decent stab at this, but still isn't there yet.

For fast password protected notes may be, but there is no way this will replace the secure notes on 1Password.

Build number is 15E39c

EDIT: Apple have now re-released it to developers with build 15E39d - the same build released to public beta testers.

I really want the same kind of video floating multitasking thingy that iOS now has on the iPad.
Facebook has a version of it (just for Facebook.com though)

Been wanting that for years

Well, it's the price you pay (or actually don't pay) for a free and a simple substitute. However, I agree, once you use 1Password, it is hard to find a good substitute for it.
