Apple released a third Golden Master candidate of OS X 10.10 Yosemite (Build 14A388a) today, and if you ask me… this won’t be the last one either. Why? Because Apple removed some display and power management related files some time ago, and with new hardware on the horizon it is either that or we’ll see some special builds popping up soon.
Anyway. I went looking for changes. As usual, and Ok. This is a really small, but important update. Small because the Payload file is only 8MB. A fraction of that of GM2. Which itself wasn’t that big either. And it is an important update, because most of the changes are security related. Something that Apple isn’t sharing with us, but it is clearly the whole point of this update. Perhaps something ugly was found along the way, so lets hope that they nailed it this time. Oh no. It’s nothing bash related.
I also see some refreshed (private) frameworks and like GM2 there is no new kernel. We’re still using the kernel that came with GM1. And don’t you worry boot.efi won’t be replaced. So now. Like last time, I cherry picked the most interesting files for you – with help of Pacifist. And here you have it:
– Utilities / Keychain Access.app
There is also another EFI/SMC update:
Most likely with changes for Handoff and Continuity.
