Apple Releases OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 2

 

Alongside iOS 8 beta 2, Apple today released a new version of OS X Yosemite, just over two weeks after initially introducing the operating system at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference.

 

The update, Developer Preview 2, has a build number of 14A261i, and can be downloaded from the Mac App Store or the Mac Dev Center.

OS X Yosemite brings a flatter, more modern look to OS X, with an emphasis on translucency, along with a slew of new features, including improved integration with iOS 8 through Continuity. It also includes a new "Today" view in Notification Center that offers integration with third-party apps, a retooled Spotlight search that offers new data sources, and several new features for apps like Mail, Safari, and Messages.

 

OS X Yosemite is currently only available to developers, but Apple plans to offer a beta version of the software to Mac users at some point during the summer. A public release of OS X Yosemite is expected in the fall, after several additional beta iterations.

 

New Features:

 

- Photo Booth: Photo Booth, which was missing from the first Yosemite beta, has now returned.

- Time Machine: Time Machine has a redesigned interface that removes the stars. (via 9to5Mac).

- Settings: There's a new Settings icon.

The settings icon was in DP1

 

Safari seems less buggy. DP1 was doing something weird with Facebook when I used the messenger parts (jumping around the page). That's stopped now

The general design of the icon hasn't changed, but the actual icon itself changed from rectangular (DP1) to square (DP2).

If you use 'digital' as the time display it doesn't seem to actually display the time..

For dark theme, try this in terminal:

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences AppleInterfaceTheme Dark

Happening to me, too. Time on its own will display, as will time with date and day, but not day and time.


Might be because of the non-English region.

Menu bar extras aren't readable yet... Otherwise, not bad. I like it.

Speaking of "chrome" they've gone a bit nuts with transparency in this update. The UI for Safari, Preview etc gets tinted with the window contents. It's a bit much.
