OS X 10.10.1 Beta 2 Released to Developers & Beta Testers
Apple has released the second beta version of OS X 10.10.1 to those registered with the Mac Developer Program and the Yosemite Public Beta. The update arrives as build 14B23 and is a relatively small download, weighing in around 300MB.
Release notes accompanying the second seed of OS X 10.10.1 are the same as the first beta seed, saying the focus areas are Wi-Fi, Exchange accounts in Mail, and Notification Center. A variety of users have experienced Wi-Fi trouble and SMTP errors with OS X Yosemite, which 10.10.1 may well resolve. Presumably some other bug fixes and enhancements are also to be included in the evolving beta update, though none others are specifically mentioned.
Currently, OS X 10.10.1 Beta 2 is only available to those registered with the Mac Developer program and Mac users who are running OS X Yosemite and participating in the Public Beta. The release was pushed to public beta users a bit later than developers but is the same build.
Eligible users can download the update from the Mac App Store.
OS X 10.10.1 will be the first update to the Mac operating system since the release of OS X Yosemite, versioned as 10.10. There is no known release timeline for the public version, but typically OS X betas go through several versions before finalizing and being made widely available to all users.
