“Apple has come out with a second beta of Mac OS X Yosemite for developers, but it’s not clear whether this latest build will address the Wi-Fi problems that continue to affect an undetermined but apparently substantial number of users,” Juan Carlos Perez reports for IDG News Service.

That first beta yielded a formal OS update released to the public on Monday.
