    which model ya got and hows it working?

    I understand it literally just came out today and moments ago at that, but given the last macOS update was just over two months ago, think some people may be interested in learning about the results as it pans out

    I've only just installed it so haven't had much time to put it through it's paces yet but so far I'd say night shift is good, and it appears as though the animation skipping that occurred when scrolling up and down in the Applications folder is more or less gone - huge improvement. Hopefully this smoothness carries across the rest of the operating system.

    So far, so good. Night Shift is great! Installation took maybe 5-10 minutes or something.

    I have been running the Developer betas on my 2016 tMBP with no problems thus far, and today's release is no exception.

    awesome I know its early on but thanks guys

    this feedback is especially helpful for people running betas prior (assuming much didn't change, which is often the case but I know not always)

    going to give .4 a whirl on my nTB

    Mine took 24 minutes if I'm not mistaken, is that fine or should I be concerned?

    mine took around that too, and failed to reboot properly was just a black screen

    force restart and a reboot got it fixed.

    geez

    Mine installed perfectly without any issues. I can't tell a difference in usability; working flawlessly.

    It did take awhile to update, but that has been a typical experience for me.

    I have been running it on my 15" since beta 4, been very happy with it and no issues even from the mid-beta on.

    I can't really comment on the final release so far, because I've been only using it for few hours, but my observations about the developer betas:

    - massively improved PDF performance for larger documents
    - much nicer bluetooth audio out experience (seamless switching, no lag)
    - Safari feels snappier :)
    - the last beta (one before the release) did introduce some weird slowdowns and partial hangs (so far haven't noticed them on the final 12.4)

    installed this morning and I can say everything went very smooth, update process went fine, night shift is working great, I dont really know about performance difference but its running good.
    Graphics glitches never happen to my 2016 pro since I bought this machine.

    The 5k display interrupted the update, caused rolling kernel panics after login. I was so angry I packed up the machine to return it. Then I took it back out and tried a bunch of restarts and single-user mode things, eventually inadvertently landing on a screen I'd never seen before related to unlocking file vault.

    Apparently the kext cache or signing was screwed up. I just hate these machines but I need a new computer. They are so buggy and I know it's just a matter of time before I lose some data. I can't believe this $4000 setup barely works at the basics.

    I'm stoked.
    Three finger drag lives on!
    Running a 2016 15/2.7/500/460 Pro, only recently acquired a week ago.

    Spent the whole day editing a 1080P project in FCPX, going well so far.

    Took a good 25min to install with two reboots happening while letting it do its thing.

    Working really well.

    Though I did have to change how the dictionary is invoked, as the updade process had changed it to force touch only. What's interesting is, that before the update the dictionary would come up with force touch, and three finger tap. Now it seems to be either or, which is fine by me, but still a bit curious. That, or I'm missing something.

    All fine... or at least not worse than before. TouchBar is still buggy and shows just an empty bar from time to time and Mail still cannot handle attachments along with S/MIME.

    To be honest, I wasn't really keeping track of the time. I might be mistaken, it could have taken more than 10 minutes.

    As long as your Mac is working fine after the update, I'm sure you've got nothing to worry about. :)

    So questions for those who have 15" MBP that runs by default on HD 530...there is a lag in mission control etc?
    and how its the three fingers? it is working as it should now? palm rejection is still good?

    Volume icon on TouchBar is slightly changed: grey waves show current volume level in the scale of the peak.

    BTW, I've experienced random TouchBar freezes from time to time. Not a single one on the new macOS version so far! I hope, this is because of the bugfixes they've silently included ;)
