    This may be a personal opinion, but El Cap seems to have crippled one of the best tools on OS X, Disk Utility. Has anything changed in 10.12? Especially looking at resizing, merging and creating partitions on the main hard disk.

    The UI to create and resize partition is bigger and easier to use, and there is a new function to create a raid.

    They've added back RAID UI functionality but I'm unsure whether that is a seperate application to Disk Utility.

    Has El Cap Disk Utility been nuked from orbit and replaced with something useful?

    I am not sure what you mean...

    To my knowledge, only the RAID support was missing. Everything else can be found in other places of the system now. Permissions repair is handled by the system installer/updater and disc burning can be done with Finder.

    Disk Utility in MacOS Sierra is what the one in El Capitan should have been. IMHO it should be released for El Capitan users in a minor update at the same time as Sierra.

    Agreed Sierra fixed a lot of the issues with the old Disk Utility

    I sure hope so since it seems that the older unsigned Yosemite version does not run in Sierra as it did in El Capitan.
