Today’s release includes a networking fix that allows non-standard HTTP headers in WebSocket handshakes; as a result of introducing this fix, users of the 1Password extension should see it functioning again. The media fix introduced today also allows Netflix video playback once again. The full release notes can be read at the Safari Technology Preview Release Notes page.
Ricky Mondello, a Safari developer at Apple, suggests checking off the “Install App Updates” box within the Mac App Store to streamline the update process. To do this:
- Launch System Preferences
- Select App Store
- Check off Install app updates
Subsequent app updates for Safari Technology Preview, and all other apps within the Mac App Store will all automatically download to your computer.
