    The issue with the sidebar width in Finder appears to be resolved now.

    Quick-Look is working better for me now. In beta 4 it would sometimes refuse to show images correctly.

    Image now open correctly in preview. In beta 4, they just wouldn't...

    The auto-complete drop down in safari works now. In beta 4 it was just blank text (but showed the drop down bars)

    :) Time to pop a bottle of champagne. They did it. We must be close to the GM now.

    Application switching between spaces is still broken, it's killing me. I had to go back to DP3

    Pop a beer instead :). I am sure for every single annoyance fixed, they still have 2-3 of them open, and I mean a long term ones, not related to El Cap especially.

    All that said, my download seems to stuck at 108 MB every time... Gotta try it again tomorrow, I suppose.

    Careful, IIRC, these betas are time-bombed. If it expires, you have to restore to the previous OS version before updating to the latest beta.

    But what is the issue? I don't have any issues with app switching between spaces.

    When you swipe with three fingers to switch spaces there is a huge graphical tear that only settles after the space has completely finished the transition.

    Does nobody else notice this?

    I'm getting a lag as well when I open 3rd party apps, started on Public Beta 2.. So annoying, I though they updated so fast to fix this!

    Thanks for reminding me of that, I really hope this gets fixed before the expiration.

    The problem is when switching to another space, the focused window of the frontmost app is still in the previous space.

    To rule out incorrect/legacy settings, I installed in a clean virtual machine, and still experience the same problem.

    A bug report submitted.

    No tears here on rMBP '12 and iMac 5k, animations are generally fairly quick and stable here, far better than any previous OS X versions.

    Does it happen in scaled resolutions or something like that?

    My resolution is scaled, but I tested with the default and it happens too.

    I must be missing a step here but I have multiple app windows on three separate spaces, no tears or lags or any issues.

    I booted up my Yosemite install and there was no tears. This started happening in beta 3 I believe.

    MikhailT, can you help to confirm if this happens on your machine? (I suppose it's >= DP4)
    1. Open a Safari window in Space 1
    2. Open a Safari window in Space 2
    3. Now the active window is the one in Space 2, you can ⌘-T to create a new tab
    4. Switch to Space 1
    5. The focused window is still the one in Space 2, so ⌘-T will create a new tab in the one in Space 2
    6. Even worse, ⌘-Tab to another app, say Finder, and switch back to Safari, it switched to Space 2 even there is already a window in Space 1 (This can be "fixed" by running "defaults write workspaces-auto-swoosh -bool NO", but the focused window is still in Space 2)

    Headings on Activity Monitor and About This Mac are no longer truncated.
    Finder and Dock icons appear to work correctly again.

    Yea, I can reproduce that. You should file a bug report with these steps. By default, I always click to focus on the main app in separate spaces, so I don't often see this.

    Not sure if I'm imagining it... but transitions seem way faster than previous betas.

    Hey guys, does it solve the scaling problem with Safari in side-by-side full screeen mode? When I use safari side by side with another app, everything becomes tiny and unusable. While Chrome is able to just show the normal window, the normal size

    gaming performance just jumped incredibly. I was playing Dead Effect and it was running smooth at full settings under DP1 then plummeted in DP2 and never got better with DP3 or DP4, glad to say that performance is back to silky smooth.

    Reminders and Calendar still not working for me in the notification today-view sidebar, although notification alerts work.
