    Anyone notice any changes? My sidebar is still messed up and is oversized (started in the 3rd beta).

    Modified animation when you do QuickView (press Space on a file).

    More like slowed down towards the end of the animation

    Finder' sidebar is still stuck in a small size for me. I can change it, but reopening a Finder window takes it back to the small size.

    Call Out Your Cursor, that shake to make bigger thing, is much harder to activate now.

    SIMBL, which I installed under DB3 by temporarily disabling SIP, is still working after this update.

    The Finder side-bar still shrinks each time.

    I had an issue with Calendar sometimes not showing the right alarm times after edits (I link it to Google calendar not the iCloud one) which has been resolved.

    Spotlight correctly opens where I last left it (in DB3 it started opening at the bottom of the screen each time).

    My recent FaceTime caller list has been wiped, so I'm wondering if some work has been done in that area.

    Contacts is grabbing email addresses from mail messages where the name matches one in contacts. There's a (i) next to each one and clicking gives me the option to keep or remove. There's an option in settings to turn this feature off. I think this is new; at least I never noticed it before.

    Eclipse is working again.
    VMWare Fusion appears to be working again.
    Silverlight is working again in Safari.

    On the whole, not a bad update.

    You meant undersized, right?
    Yes, the bug is still present in DP4.

    One of my favorite browsers - iCab, began working again. It would just crash in earlier El Cap betas. I didn't do anything to troubleshoot, nor make other changes, but it launches now without crashing. Another webkit-based browser, Roccat, is also working again.

    VPNs seem to be fixed in this beta, HMA client actually launches and runs fine instead of bouncing in the dock forever.

    Also don't know if it was Spotify update or DP4 that fixed the Spotify/iTunes conflict dialog to pop up when switching between them with both open.

    Is iCab still being maintained? I only used it briefly on Panther a while back because it's one of the newest browsers for that OS.

    Yes, you can still download versions that run only on MacOS 7 or 8

    The version 5.5 that I have runs on Lion or newer, and appears to work fine on El Capitan. That iCab was updated last year.

    Anyone having network problems? Ones where you can connect to Wi-Fi or Ethernet but still have no network access?

    The annoying NIB preloading issue has been fixed in System Preferences, where they would load the UI first and then set the values. But i'm not sure whether it was already in DP3.

    DP3 caused some Mail weirdness but now it's working fine. So far I'm seeing nice improvements in performance in DP4 which is great!

    I finally can do split screen between outlook 2016 and other apps.
    Previously I wasn't able to do this with Outlook. Other Apps worked though.

    Not sure if this happened just to me.

    In my side, split screen with any office 2016 application has serious issue, which will halt the app indefinitely.
