OS X 10.10 Yosemite – Testing Part 2

By | 2014/09/16

Following my testing of OS X 10.10 Yosemite [1], today I have downloaded the following two updates from Apple for the Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite:

  • OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 7
  • OS X Beta Recovery Update

First of all it would be helpful to provide some more details in regards to the context of the update. An “this update is recommended for all users” with an 1.6 GB package is a bit questionable. Unfortunately directly after the installation I was not able to use Mail anymore. Trying to write a new mail, I’ve been able to define the recipients, to attach a file, but actually not to write any text.

Then I wanted to create an bug report with the Apple Feedback tool. As far as I remember it was possible to report it via the Help menu. When I looked there, actually the help was somehow missing. I’ve check on other apps – e.g. Safari, but the help menu points are missing there as well.


Actually the menu points are there and can be selected, but the labels are missing.

I am just wondering if there will be another patch when iOS8 is going to be released 2014/09/17 following techradar.com [2]. Anyway that is going to be interesting how the integration with Yosemite works.

[2014/09/21] Update: Furthermore I’ve noticed that the search function in the Calendar does not work correctly. I searched for “PPL-KURS”, where I should have at least 10 entries in the future, but it gave me “No results found”.
