First OS X Yosemite 10.10.4 beta for Mac developers now available

Apple today seeded the first developer build of OS X 10.10.4 Yosemite to testers. The build is labeled 14E7f and follows today’s supplemental update of OS X 10.10.3 and the first developer beta of iOS 8.4 which includes a brand new Music app and iTunes Radio experience.

Today’s release appears to only be available to registered developers and AppleSeed testers; public beta versions of OS X tend to follow in subsequent build releases. For registered developers and AppleSeed members with the Configuration Utility installed, the pre-release software update should be available through the Mac App Store. Apple says the update focuses on “stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac.”

Apple has released a new beta version of OS X 10.10.2 to developers through the App Store’s software update mechanism and the Mac Developer Center. The update, which has a build number of 14C99d (compared to 14C94b in the previous release) is not yet available to AppleSeed users.

The 10.10.2 update will include fixes for common Wi-Fi problems, issues with the built-in Mail app, VoiceOver, and more. With only one week passing between pre-release builds, it seems the patch is getting closer to completion, and could be expected for public release soon.
