Supplemental update for El Capitan beta fixes problems with 32-bit apps
Just one day after launching a public beta of the operating system, Apple has released a "Supplemental Update" for OS X El Capitan, fixing a bug that could cause some 32-bit apps to crash.
El Capitan users can also download a minor update to the OS' "Samantha" voice, improving clarity and pronunciation.
Because El Capitan is still in a pre-release phase, it's wise to make backups before trying the beta and avoid using it on mission-critical Macs.
The final version of the OS should launch for free sometime this fall. The software is mostly a refinement of Yosemite, but does include new features and refinements such as Split View, performance boosts, expanded search functions, pinned Safari tabs, and an easier incarnation of Mission Control.
