The final few versions of Yosemite are prevailing through beta versions before the arrival of El Capitan later this fall. A few days ago, Apple seeded OS X 10.10.5 to developers and recently the course shifted to a public beta release. Considering the launch of El Capitan, this may be one of the important updates to Yosemite. There are a lot of significant changes yet to be introduced before Apple puts ground to its forthcoming OS X update.

If you want to update to the OS X 10.10.5, it is available through Software Update Mechanism via Mac App Store. Do make sure that you are enrolled for the Apple Beta Software Program that will enable you to get the update. The public beta for OS X 10.10.5 carries the same build number (14F6a) that was seeded to developers a few days back. Lets see if there are any changes introduced in the public release.

OS X 10.10.5 Public Beta Released - No Major Upgrade

Since the two builds are the same, public beta and developer beta, there may not be a major jump in upgrades. It seems that OS X 10.10.5 public beta does not constitute any major visual differences and performance enhancements but it does seem likely that there is improved stability in the overall OS. Since testers would be keen to notify any major bug fixes, it is presumed that Apple will forward this build as the final release as OS X 10.10.5 Yosemite.
