    • Full Screen Safari title bar uses translucency.

    Picture of the calculator redesign:

    The version number hasn't been updated to 10.10 (still says 10.8), and there are no transitions when changing between the calculator types. Still a work in progress, but it looks great.

    Downloading new transactions in Quicken Essentials was broken in Beta 3. Happy to report this has been fixed in Beta 4.

    Safari audio issue

    In b3, video played in Safari (from most any source) would lose audio if I used the scrubber at all. This appears to have been fixed!

    Has it fixed Apple TV streaming (DP3 broke this and I had to send media to my ATV via Airplay instead)

    Can't send SMS again. This used to work on DP2 but I have no idea how I've ever gotten it to work.

    New close button when you mouse over a Desktop in Mission Control.

    Edit: This seems to be system-wide. The same close button can be found in Launchpad when you try to delete apps, and in stacks when you there is a downloading file or a copying file.

    Funny, I thought the same thing about making calls (on both my imac & mini). Sometimes it works, and sometimes it just doesn't. I didn't do anything specific to get it to work but when it's not working, I can't figure out why. I did notice, however, that it either works on both (iMac & mini) or not at all.

    Does anyone else have this annoying bug on Launchpad, that even after successful installs, still shows ghosts (which can't be deleted) that cause the dock icon to show an empty progress bar??

    I moved some apps from a folder, in launchpad. Now the folder is empty and still exists. There is also a gap between 2 apps where it should be another app.

    Another awful discovery:

    Now, if you drag a file to a "select file" window, it no longer selects the file wherever it is, but instead it moves the file to whatever folder you're seeing on the file selector.

    To get the old behavior you need to drop te file near the "open" button, not inside the folder area.

    It's behaving like Windows' file selector :/

    I am having the same issue (with iPhoto but I don't think it is related to the app)
    It happened when I launched iPhoto download through the MAS. I must have rebooted or something before the download was finished. So the download was paused. When I resumed it, it added a new icon instead in the launchpad.

    3 other members of the forum at least are having the same issue here and here.

    I am using the Public Beta FYI. I guess all we can do at the moment is create a new feedback to Apple.
