Been on OS X 10.10 since DP1 and this update addresses so much of what was 'wrong' with the beta if you could say that

Full Exchange is finally working
Safari tabs work
Safari opens URL's within an AD environment now
Its quick and fluid

:D:D:D Sounds interesting - are you using 10.10 as your main machine.

I have held off as I use Exchange and Citrix - which I had heard were unstable

Feedback on these would be appreciated if you use them

Is there any improvement in performance in retina macbooks since DP2 in your opinion guys?

I'd say so. In addition to Safari not lagging (especially when opening new tabs), desktop scrolling (left - right) seems much smoother, what you'd get with Mavericks.

I held off on upgrading to Yosemite until a couple DPs were out, and today I finally took the risk. Having experienced DP1 I can honestly say this build is fantastic, and that's coming from someone that needs his production system (yes, I only have one computer and it's also my work computer) to work correctly.

This build may be completely acceptable as the Public Beta Program build.

thank god they fixed spotlight.

In the last DP it was like it had not indexed anything, and was only picking up installed applications, not files and documents.

But - yes this is public beta ready.

The most important thing for me that was fixed was the wifi speeds. DP3 ruined my wifi speeds to low terrible 1-5mbps speeds. Now I get the 50mbps I'm paying for

Safari is amazing with DP4, I now use it as my main browser. iTunes 12 is sexy, but I expected more.

DP4 is still crashing Safari tabs for me left and right. Also now other apps are crashing a lot (i.e. Sublime Text). So far I haven't noticed any improvements in stability from one DP to the next.

Speed is better though. Animations are better. And indexing hasn't been as bad.

Exchange support for one of my Exchange accounts is working better but not perfectly. The other account still is a mess (emails not syncing) but it has 60,000+ emails in the Inbox.

It's all great and ****ing dandy, but AirDrop still isn't working between my rMBP and my iPad Air running iOS 8.

Have you tried fixing your disk permissions? Some people were having Safari issues and this fixed it for them.

It's starting to take shape, but it's not ready for Public Beta yet IMO.

I still notice a bunch of small UI problems, have had a few crashes with Safari and still have a red process showing up : SpotlightNetHelper

But yes, we're getting real close.

I installed it on my spare machine for testing, I find DP4 less laggy but now it cannot find my wifi networks so no internet!!!!! (It was fine from DP1 to DP3)

Tried reboots etc and it just searches for ages but never finds my home network

It's running so smoothly for me from an external drive I've been tempted to install it on my main disk. The only UI glitches I can recall so far are the times in the weather widget are muddled up, and that opening mail always scrolls you to the bottom of your inbox, meaning I have to scroll back through my thousands of emails to reach the top.

I think the next release could come with public beta though, because its very close to good enough.
