    I am running Beta 6; but I don't see an upgrade to the latest version. I don't want to reinstall fresh; I just want to upgrade. How do I do this?

    Just download the full installer & install it, you won't lose anything. You can always install new version without losing anything you just can't downgrade without clean install.

    Beware though that I upgraded from PB6 to Final Version & now the widgets are not appearing & Social Share isn't even working, but everything else is fine. It's been reported about the widget bug already by many people.

    Whenever I install a new version of Mac OS X (10.10 included). It causes configuration issues with apache/php and it is a pain to fix. I will do this; but I would rather just update like I have been doing.

    There is no update from PB6 to Final Version for some reason. I talked to Apple yesterday and they told me to download and install full version over PB6 & then if I want new betas to go to Beta Seed site and follow the new directions.

    There is no upgrade; just stay on PB6 and remove the Feedback icon from your dock.

    Or, if you're bored and have time to kill, download and run the full installer which will do nothing apart from change a release number (from 388b to 389).

    Thanks for the info. I will just stay on beta 6 as it seems it is the final version.

    The full release started downloading all by itself on mine. When I go to "purchases" I see Mavericks, 10.10 PB 4, and now Yosemite downloading. Weird. I swear I didn't do it so it must be what they want us to do!
