Windows 8.1 - because the new BootCamp causes that the installation of Windows stops not seeing/recognizing the ready NTFS partition once formated!
Windows 10 - because of the same problem with the new BootCamp! - for info: MP 6.1 late 2013.
(If someone succeded to install Windows with BootCamp please comment. Thanks!)


I'm concerned about:

Acrobat Pro (X works fine for me)
Backup Buddy
Drive Genius 3
DiskWarrior 4.4
Drobo Dashboard <-- according to this thread, it looks good except for iSCSI:
http://www.drobospace.com/forums/showthread.php?tid=144837
And Drobo says on their support page that it works with "our current product line": https://myproducts.drobo.com/support
Stata 13
Scrivener 2.7 is still a 32 bit app so you need to apply the NSFont fix, then it works. Type the following in Terminal (probably applies to all 32 bit apps):
defaults delete .GlobalPreferences NSFont
Then either log out or reboot.

If anyone has these and are using El Capitan Beta could you please post if they are working OK? Thanks

Unusually, some of the applications that always seem to break when a new OS version arrived (Parallels & RoboForm) seem fine on this release. Istat Menus and Little Snitch are my biggest casualties.

I lost Box Sync as well as Little Snitch & iStat Menus (both mentioned above)

OS X firewall also blocked Drobo's DDService64d, that was a simple fix though

Fitbit Sync is no longer able to find the USB Dongle, so I have lost seamless syncing

CCC is not working due to compatibility.. same as Little Snitch :\
Is it not working or is it just warning. I have an old version of CCC (the old free version) and it works for Yosemite, it just issues a warning about compatibility. It then goes on its merry way backing up my system

CopyClip doesn't work.

When launching from Spotlight or Applications in Finder, it shows in the tray but then immediately crashes and disappears.
