Apple seeds macOS Catalina 10.15.1 beta 3 to developers

Juli Clover for MacRumors:

Apple today seeded the third beta of an upcoming macOS Catalina 10.15.1 update to developers, a week after seeding the second beta and a little over two weeks after releasing macOS Catalina to the public.

The first update to ‌macOS Catalina‌ is minor in scale and appears to focus on performance improvements and fixes for bugs that weren’t able to be addressed in the first version of Catalina. An interim supplemental update was released just two days ago with some other bug fixes that needed to be addressed before 10.15.1 was ready.

MacDailyNews Take: Hopefully, with this update Catalina will remember where application windows were left on dual display setups upon awakening from Sleep. It’s pretty maddening.

  1. Catalina is a total show-stopper for me – I tested it on an old MB Air. So many of my GUI/UX tweaks, 3rd party apps etc don’t work.

    Productivity has gone down the toilet.

    FolderGlance DOA. The single biggest contribution to my workflow gone. I have big screen – having contextual menu app to allow me to work on files etc by two-finger touch was remarkably useful. Now I am expected to travel the pointer to the bottom of screen, use the FUGLY dock everytime I want to do something? Seriously? Improvement in productivity and efficiency? NOT!

    Happy that cDock and BarTender work, but no CM for Finder is a deal breaker.

    as always with Apple, its all about form over function. I don’t need 100s of new emojis, or all the other tweaks planted in the OS for the kids, I need a machine to work on – meanwhile Apple doing everything in its power to reduce the usefulness of their gear.

    And please spare me the, “.. security, security, security…” waffle – I need to run java for Cold Fusion db, I run without SIP and I want my Mac to look like I want, not Jonny and his minions. I need control over my machine.

    Apple has become the very embodiment of the foe in the 1984 commercial – bland, no control, no customization or personality – bland bland bland GUI/UX.

    Even AOL Desktop has a feature to remember window size and location! It is not a good day when AOL actually has Apple beat!
