OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 5 Released
OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 5 has been released to developers who are in the Mac Developer Program. The latest build is “recommended for all users” and focuses on bug fixes and improvements to the developer build of OS X. The build number is 14A314h.
Note that Developer Preview builds of OS X Yosemite are different and separate from the newly available Public Beta builds of OS X 10.10, and are updated more often. Users of the Public Beta will not find the Developer Preview updates available to them, and vice versa.
As usual, users can update to OS X Developer Preview 5 through the Mac App Store, where it will be available to machines running the prior OS X 10.10 dev preview builds under the Updates tab. Mac developers who are still running Mavericks can also go through the Mac Dev Center on Apple.com to find and redeem an App Store download code and install the latest version.
Separately, registered iOS developers will also find iOS 8 beta 5 available to download through the on-device OTA mechanism as well.
OS X Yosemite features a revised interface that is flatter and more translucent, many new features, and significant improvements to cross iOS-to-Mac compatibility. The public release of Yosemite is expected to debut sometime this fall as a free download, possibly alongside the release of new or updated Mac hardware.
