    Hey guys,

    For those that have had the opportunity to try out 10.10.4, does anyone know if this release will improve functionality, such as animation transitions? (and general performance)

    Never really noticed the UI lag before, until I hooked up to my 4K external monitor. I do really like Yosemite and the features it brings, but would just love the UI transitions to be super smooth.

    Regards :)

    Sill surprised that my 15" rMBP with 750M, which can run StarCraft II at 60fps on high settings, has UI lag and lags viewing PDFs in Preview.

    No, Yosemite continues crappy as ever in the lag department. Ridiculous.

    ny somewhere
    am having no problems in 10.10.4, except a lag moving email to a folder in apple mail (this happened in 10.10.3 as well); reported it to apple.

    otherwise (so far), a stellar experience (but no perceivable difference between this and my 10.10.3 experience).

    personally, am enjoying yosemite...

    Running 10.10.4 with no discernible problems. Everything works fine.

    Is there any noticeable improvements with 10.10.4, if not id rather wait and use public release software rather than beta until there is a reason to actually upgrade? Thanks

    It's almost perfect for me.

    I'm sure the new 10.11 will fix a lot of the problems :)

    It's not terrible, as long as you remove transparency.

    Yep. Still laggy with 10.10.4.

    Animations are smooth after restart but using an external display or working a few hours and the 10 fps UI animations are back:mad:

    I guess all OS X software engineers are busy fiddling with their new Apple watches:rolleyes:

    Are you using a retina Mac?

    No, and I understand that's the reason why things run so well for me. I have no plans to buy a retina Mac until the Intel graphics can run OS X as smoothly as the HD 4000 chip does on my mid-2012 cMBP.

    That new 12" MacBook is tempting... but I know better.

    Which depends less on having a more powerful chip and more with Apple fixing retina on the Mac. So wait for that.

    What is there to fix? Just curious, because it seems to me like the problem is more pixels than power.

    Except it isn't more Pixels than power. Last generation could power a 4k monitor.

    Edit: This generation can run a 4k monitor, too, obviously. And if you turn off v-sync, the lag on said monitor practically disappeara.

    Any improvement in battery life, especially for those who suffered drain after 10.10.3 update?

    Apple's worst-in-class GPU drivers. They are buggy and slow as hell. Just look at cross-platform graphics benchmarks and you'll realise where the problems lie. As an aside, the HD4000 certainly has more than enough bandwidth to drive my 15" rMBP theoretically, if only Apple employed engineers who specialised in GPU drivers...

    Back to the OP, can't really say I notice any improvement in the 10.10.4PB, but I run in the very non-optimal 1920x1200HiDPI mode most of the time. Even so, although I do see "jank", mostly using the mouse to switch spaces, my rMBP is still fully useable.

    What I haven't seen is anyone coming up with a reliable benchmark to test these things, like using automation and Quartz debug to e.g. trigger spaces switches etc.

    10.10.4 public beta seems to be running fine here...

    It looks like 10.10.4 is already a great polish of OSX not very great but just good to have.. Also no more Wi-Fi problems anymore now..

    Does any one have a guess of the live release date?

    Interested to see any stability changes.

    this happens with every OSX apple released. I still use mavericks at work, and its borderline unusable at times with multiple programs open.
