I love the new OS X Yosemite interface, no matter what other people say. It's not as flat as you think and if you don't like the new dock, there is probably a 70% chance some 3rd party app will let you get back the 3D dock, just like Jailbreak offer for iOS 7 users. It's clean, fresh, still has a depth to it, the icons are perfect (except the trashcan of course), Notification Center is more attractive to use with the new Widgets system, since the widget system for Dashboard has never attracted me and many others I know of, if you don't like the translucency you can turn it off and so on. I really don't care what people say about the user interface. I can see how people running on older hardware won't upgrade, since it will probably have poor performance. But people hated the new iOS 7 as well until they just had to live with it. Now the percentage of iPhones running iOS 7 is at 90%, only 9% are running iOS 6.x. I bet it will be similar for OS X Yosemite as well. It's one of those things you either accept or don't. But if you don't like it, don't whine about it. It won't change anything.

I too need to get the original upgrade from Mavericks to Yosemite because I have an Apogee ensemble firewire version that is not supported by the manufacturer after Yosemite. I'm sorry I didn't ever download Yosemite and now I could really use some help in getting the original Mavericks to Yosemite upgrade. I tried several of the 3rd party websites. Turned out to be a big waste of time! And from what I've read here if it doesn't have a current certificate the upgrade won't work either. Appreciate any help you can give me. Thanks!

10.10.4 is the first version of Yosemite that now feels on par with 10.9.5, in terms of responsiveness, stability and speed. The return of mDNSresponder (ba bye DiscoverD!) has fixed all my network share and connection problems. No drops at all in the 24 hours since installing. Wireless rock solid. Graphics much faster, especially noticeable in a VM, where before bringing up Grid view from the Dock, you could literally see the screen redraw. Now, even though it's not instantaneous, I can actually say it 'pops up' as opposed to 'redraws'. Enabled TRIM using the new 'sudo trimforce enable' command on all my systems, using various SSD brands ranging from Samsung EVO to Seagate, no issues. IF YOU OWN A SAMSUNG EVO OR EVO PRO, 840 OR 850, be sure to install the latest firmware before turning on TRIM support http://www.samsung.com/global/business/semiconductor/minisite/SSD/global/html/support/downloads.html There is a lot of confusion about the multiple issues with the Samsung and the need for firmware update. Some users are insisting the problem is only with Linux, and you don't need a firmware update. Not true, there are actually TWO critical issues discoverd so far with the EVO drives, one known problem, true, related to the drives having an incorrect bit set that tells the OS what type of NCQ queing command it supports, in which Linux attempts to implement and runs in to problems. Windows and OS X ignore this bit because as of now, they only support 'normal' sequential TRIM, so is unaffected BY THIS PARTICULAR PROBLEM. HOWEVER, there is ANOTHER issue with Samsung EVO related to reading data that is 'old' (not been accessed) where the charge may degrade, requiring multiple attempts to read the data. This problem is not OS specific and deals with the actual physical nature of the drive itself. The latest firmware from April 15, 2015 fixes this by periodically 'refreshing' all the data on the drive to keep the charge strong, even data that isn't accessed. This problem affects the drive regardless of OS, so highly recommended you update the firmware. Read more about this SEPARATE PROBLEM UNRELATED TO THE LINUX PROBLEM HERE: http://www.extremetech.com/gaming/203449-new-samsung-840-evo-firmware-will-add-periodic-refresh-capability Firmware update is provided as an ISO bootable CD image that will boot Macs or Windows PC., using a Linux micro kernel, that locates and updates the drive. I've updated without issues. TotalFinder, (my one MUST HAVE mod) is working fine on 10.10.4 using the latest version of TF.

I had a hard time getting this update to install. The App Store app kept hanging, and the combined updater refused to run. It wasn't until I'd re-started about 4 times that it finally installed. No issues once I got it installed, though.

Version: 10.10.4
CAUTION: IF YOU USE ANY SYSTEM MODS (TotalFinder, cDock, Liteicon, Yosemite Revert, etc. , anything using SIMBL), refrain from updating until you thoroughly understand the consequences or the developer has offered a workaround (if possible). Frankly, developers who are part of the Apple Developer Program have known for quite some time during the beta of 10.10.4 that Apple was integrating SIP (System Integrity Protection) aka 'rootless' administration, so developers should have had plenty of time to figure out if their app is effected and what to do. those that are finding out now their app is broken either weren't following what was going on, aren't registered with Apple, or maybe hoped Apple was going to change its mind about SIP (System Integrity Protection). SIP is a security feature, on the whole, it actually makes sense. It's to prevent non-Apple programs from modifying operating system files, which is what malware and viruses do. From the very beginning of OSX, from 10.0.0 up to 10.10.3, an installer program was free to modify just about anything it wanted, once the user entered the password during install. (and the user was an admin, which just about everyone runs from an admin account). It's amazing there hasn't been more chaos and malware because of this ability. The flip side of this is that many 'legit' programs that modify the system, also by definition, have to modify system files. Many of these programs (Totalfinder, cDock, anything using SIMBL) work by 'injection' , they actually find Apple code in memory and 'inject' themselves into it, or substitute themselves for it. From a app standpoint, even though it is intended and 'okay', 10.10.4 can't tell the difference between that and viral behavior. You can't judge intent, you can only go by behavior and what you see. 'Thou shalt not touch or attempt to modify the operating system in any way!" Before you say all of this is unnecessary, Macs don't have malware, blah blah, hold off. Apple obviously sees the writing on the wall, as a community we have been lucky regards malware such as on the scale seen on Windows, but it's certainly possible. Up till now, once the user entered their password during an install (from an admin account), an installer could pretty much do whatever it wanted. With SIP, Apple is just trying to get ahead of the curve. Now it's still required for a user to enter a password when installing, but now if the program is malicious, it will be locked out from messing around with the operating system files. Obviously people will be disappointed that some of their favorite hacks may not work anymore, but before we all dump on Apple, understand why Apple did this, and why something like SIP was really inevitable. Read the headlines, cyber space is getting more dangerous everyday....US and China about headed to war over cyber hacking. All the hacked software people get from torrents (Mac and Windows) is RIDDLED with malware. It's possible Apple may eventually allow some kind of 'whitelist' that will let you define what apps can bypass SIP, but that will require that apps are signed, something a lot of mod programs and mod developers don't do, because 1), these apps are basically hacks, 2) getting Apple to issue a signed certificate to a developer of a hack is, shall we say, problematic. Of course, SIP can be disabled, this is not the place to discuss it. Understand the consequences if you go that route, make an informed decision, weigh the pros and cons, and live with the consequences. If you are very careful about what you install, download, and trust the vendors, disabling SIP may not be a big deal. Lastly, as I always like to say, if you aren't using virtualization, you are just being foolish (Parallels, Fusion, Virtualbox etc) I test all new software in a virtual machine, all updates, etc. Only when I'm comfortable do I then push the update/software to my every day 'get my work done' system. The folks that rush to install every latest update, etc, into their every day system and then complain stuff is broken, well, can't help you. If you don't want to use virtual machines, then get an external drive and make some extra boot partitions and test your software on those first. REally is no excuse. Hard disks are cheap

Seems to have repaired a very annoying delay after clicking on a file in Mail, Finder and other apps. One major problem persists which I have noted since updating my system to 10.10.3 – local syncing/backup of Contacts and Calendars only is available for iPhone. iTunes is forcing your Safari bookmarks and email settings up into iCloud servers. Why does Apple want control of our Safari bookmarks and email settings? T. Cook's open letters and claims of privacy protection do not hold much water if they abolish local syncing. There needs to be more uproar about this.

Be patient with this one. After downloading from the App Store, my early-2011 MBP 17" restarted 3 times in quick succession, then after about a minute a fourth time before finishing the installation. Just being done with "discoveryd" is worth the update alone. So far so good.

those of you with developer accounts who are beta testing 10.10.4, PLEASE submit tickets to Apple imploring them to include the new TrimForce Enable function into 10.10.4. Supposedly Apple had said they would include it 10.10.4, as well as in El Capitan, but the latest 10.10.4 build still doesn't have it. Not sure if they changed their mind, waiting for next build, or FORGOT to slip it in. TRIMForce Enable is new function that will finally provide built in support for TRIM on SSD drives, not just the Apple branded SSDs but third party ones. On another note, those of you who have been complaining about why Apple hasn't supported trim before on third party drives, well it has become known now that early on, even developers and many manufacturers of SSDs, didn't understand how to implement TRIM or how it was supposed to work and did NOT implement it correctly in their drives firmware, actually resulting in data loss and instead of just trimming unused/deleted blocks, would incorrectly release USED blocks. This had nothing to do with the OS (Mac or Windows), the OS simply sends the TRIM command to the SSD controller. The controller and the firmware on the drive then does the actual clean up completely behind the scenes, independent of the operating system. The actual clean up may not happen for hours, days, or weeks, long after the data has been 'deleted' by the operating system. Depends on free space and how the firmware is programmed when to clean up. In the early days, many controllers would only clean up when the drive was idle for a certain time. Newer ones do it in the background regularly, even while the disk is in use. Some of the bargain priced SSDs today, using previous discontinued early generations of SSD controller chips (that's why they are discounted, using old technology), still are effected with this problem. So, Apple was simply being protective of its brand, only enabling TRIM for its own Apple approved SSDs which it had thoroughly tested in house and validated that did handle the TRIM command correctly without data corruption. Now, they are opening up, because of such push back from people using third party SSDs, but when you enable it under El Capitan, you are very strongly given a warning that it is at your own risk, and Apple can't guarantee the 3rd party drive you may using implements trim correctly. Supposedly I read somewhere some group or group of people were going to start a site where they would post results of tests showing which SSD models and versions of firmware had been tested and validated that handle TRIM correctly. Anyways, if you wanted trim support natively in OS X, without resorting to hacks, it's coming, but caveat emptor, make sure you use good quality drives, and updated firmware. Another reason Apple is doing this, El Capitan will ship with the new System Integrity Protection or 'rootless' protection, which prevents apps from modifying or installing anything into the System Library or Extensions folder. This goes beyond the kext signing introduced in Yosemite. IN general, this is a good thing, will protect against malware, and system instability caused by third parties mucking around or changing critical files. But it will also lock out a lot of hacks, some of which have been useful.. The typical user won't notice a thing, people who like to mod their Mac and OS X may have to figure out new ways of doing things. Programs like TotalFinder, cDock, etc, not clear yet how or if they will work in El Capitan under rootless, or if they will require rootless to be turned off....still too early. Not clear yet if Apple will allow you to turn off, install the app you want that needs it turned off, then re-enable rootless and see if Apple 'remembers' and continues to let that app function, or locks it out.

In the latest 10.10.4 beta 4, Apple has DITCHED the infamous discoveryd and gone back to mdnsresponder handling the stack functions that DD was handled. Not clear if this is a reworked mdnsresponder, Mavericks version or what.

OS X's discoveryd clusterfuck
posted by Thom Holwerda on Tue 5th May 2015 23:03 UTC

Regardless of the many issues people were reporting with discoveryd, Apple went ahead and released it anyway. As a result, this piece of software is responsible for a large portion of the thousand cuts. Personally, I've wasted many hours just trying to keep my devices talking to each other. Macs that used to go months between restarts were being rebooted weekly. The situation is so bad that I actually feel good when I can just kill discoveryd and toggle the network interface to get back to work.

Comment: "Seems to be a huge paint point in OS X right now. I've experienced this issue once with my new retina MacBook Pro since I got it (a week ago), and it basically stops any data from being transferred to the Mac. The wireless connection remains online, but it just does't transfer any data. I hope Apple gets to fixing this soon."


http://furbo.org/2015/05/05/discoveryd-clusterfuck/ :

Only good thing that’s come of this whole situation is that we now have more empathy for the bullshit that folks using Windows have suffered with for years. It’s too bad that Apple only uses place names from California, because OS X Redmond would be a nice homage.

It’s no secret in the tech community that discoveryd is the root cause of so many problems. There are even crazy workarounds. With so many issues, you’d expect some information from Apple explaining ways to mitigate the problems.

Nope.

The only explanation I can come up with for this astounding lack of information is that there’s some mid-level product manager at Apple who’s covering their ass. I hope this person who’s responsible for withholding advice feels good about themselves, because the rest of us hate them with the burning passion of a thousand suns. Being stingy with knowledge in an engineering organization is a fucking stupid career move.

Sadly, Apple has forced myself and many others to continue using Pages 09 until it no longer works or Apple rectifies their insane blunder. If they do not realize and correct their egregious err, I will never, install or use the "New" Apple Pages! Their latest egregious software blunder has forced me to uninstall iPhoto and the new Photos Application, in favor of alternative software, Lyn and Gimp. They just don't get it!

"It just Works" not anymore! iMac Graphics Update Fixes Crashes from JPEG Viewing in OS X Yosemite Apr 23, 2015 Release notes accompanying the iMac update explain the issue: If you’re using using OS X Yosemite v10.10.3 and one of the following iMac models, viewing certain very large JPEG (.jpg) images in the Finder or Preview can cause your iMac to briefly stop responding, display a black screen, and restart to a message that your computer restarted because of a problem. iMac users can get the update from the Mac App Store, or download the update from Apple here. A reboot is required to complete the installation. It is recommended to back up a Mac before installing any system software. Unrelated to this update but relevant to Finder trouble, some other Mac users have experienced trouble with the Finder in OS X 10.10.3 populating files and folders at an extremely slow pace, which is resolvable by deleting cache files as described here. Additionally, some other OS X Yosemite users have found Finder to be problematic, which is typically solved by deleting Finder plists and rebooting the Mac. http://osxdaily.com/2015/04/23/imac-graphics-update-fixes-crashes-from-jpeg-viewing-in-os-x-yosemite/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+osxdaily+%28OS+X+Daily%29

Apple Patches Critical Backdoor Flaw in OS X 10.10.3 By Sean Michael Kerner Apple is patching a long list of vulnerabilities across its OS X operating system that were found by both internal Apple resources and external security researchers. Among the security issues patched in OS X 10.10.3 is a security vulnerability in its administration framework. The issue, identified as CVE-2015-1130, was reported by security researcher Emile Kvarnhammar, CEO at TrueSec. "The admin framework in Apple OS X contains a hidden backdoor API to root privileges," Kvarnhammar wrote in a blog post. "It's been there for several years (at least since 2011), I found it in October 2014, and it can be exploited to escalate privileges to root from any user account in the system." While Apple has now fixed the CVE-2015-1130 in the 10.10.3 update for users of Apple's Yosemite OS 10.10 operating system, older OS X systems are also at risk. Kvarnhammar noted that Apple told him the fix required a substantial amount of changes and a patch would not likely be back-ported for OS X 10.9 and older. "Our recommendation to all OS X users out there: Upgrade to 10.10.3 (or later)," Kvarnhammar wrote. Apple also has nine patches in OS X 10.10.3 for various OS X kernel vulnerabilities. Among the patched kernel flaws is CVE-2015-1103, which was discovered by Zimperium Mobile Security Labs. According to Apple's advisory, the flaw could have enabled an attacker to redirect user traffic to arbitrary hosts. "ICMP (Internet Control Message Protocol) redirects were enabled by default on OS X," Apple's advisory states. "This issue was addressed by disabling ICMP redirects." Google's Project Zero security research team is also well-represented on the Apple OS X 10.10.3 patch list and is credited with reporting seven vulnerabilities. Five of the Google Project Zero vulnerabilities are found in the Apple Type Service (ATS) component of OS X. The impact of the issues is that arbitrary code could have been executed. The other two of the Google Project Zero issues are found in the IOHIDFamily, a library of human interface interactions. The IOHDFamily is being patched for six different vulnerabilities. Apple is now providing its users with an updated version of the open-source OpenSSL cryptographic library for Secure Sockets Layer/Transport Layer Security (SSL/TLS). The new OpenSSL version 0.9.8zd fixes six vulnerabilities. Apple is also providing its OS X users with the Safari 8.0.5 update. Seven security updates in the Safari browser are specifically for the WebKit rendering engine. One particularly nasty flaw fixed in Safari is CVE-2015-1129, an SSL/TLS tracking issue. According to Apple, the vulnerability could have enabled users to be tracked by malicious Websites using client certificates. "An issue existed in Safari's client certificate matching for SSL authentication," Apple warned in its advisory. "This issue was addressed by improved matching of valid client certificates." http://www.eweek.com/security/apple-patches-critical-backdoor-flaw-in-os-x-10.10.3.html

Those experiencing 'slowness', after upgrade to 10.10.3, I was initially as well after install on older Macs but after a day of use, all machines (ranging from 2001 to current) are very responsive running 10.10.3 now even the ones that were initially slow. And then it dawned on me that a major upgrade like this, all caches were probably cleared after the update (kernel cache, system cache etc). So took a bit of time for system to re-cache as they are used; once caches are rebuilt, all systems are what I would call 'snappy', basically same speed as Mavericks.

Even 10.10.3 VMs running under Parallels Desktop 10 are running noticeably better under 10.10.3, especially graphics. Bug with Image Capture not saving settings is now fixed. I've not had any issues so far with mDNSresponder and DiscoverD with local networking and shares. Memory usage is improved.

Overall this is the first release of Yosemite that I feel is comparable to the experience of Mavericks 10.9.5; I'm speaking strictly in terms of speed, responsiveness and stability. Everyone has their own opinion about the GUI changes (which ever since switching to Dark Mode and turning down transparency, I actually like the new look).

One minor issue I found with Photos, after import, it tagged EVERY photo with the Keyword 'Home' (along with whatever keywords each photo had previously). Over 6,000 photos. Fortunately, I'm very good at organizing into Albums and Events, combined with some creative use of Smart Folders, I was quickly able to exclude all the ones that shouldn't have that Keyword and then untag them.

Strongly recommend you try out 10.10.3 on a secondary boot copy of your system before committing your main/everyday setup, especially if your photos are important to you (and honestly, doesn't everyone think their photos are important, of course we do). This is NOT to say that the new Photos app is bad, I"m not commenting on the app itself, but be aware it converts your existing iPhoto library and if you choose to migrate, the old iPhoto app is removed, so try this out first in a virtual machine or partition clone. Screen sharing is definitely improved, initial connect is much faster, once connected, feels more responsive, as good as Mavericks was; handles multiple monitor situations more smoothly as well.

ExtremeTech "the new desktop OS X 10.10.3 includes Spotlight suggestions for Look Up, some Safari stability and privacy updates, and improved Bluetooth connection reliability. There are also several listed fixes for what has turned out to be a huge problem with current Yosemite Macs: Wireless stability. To wit, Apple says 10.10.3 does the following: Improves Wi-Fi performance and connectivity in various usage scenarios Improves compatibility with captive Wi-Fi network environments Many reports around the Internet are rife with complaints about the Wi-Fi performance of Apple devices running Yosemite, and both 10.10.1 and 10.10.2 included unspecified Wi-Fi fixes at the top of the list of new features each time. Is the third time a charm? We’ll soon find out. On the business side of things, the new 10.10.3 version also fixes an issue that causes Macs bound to an Active Directory server to become unresponsive on boot-up, and has a few other enterprise-level patches as well." http://www.extremetech.com/computing/202915-apple-pushes-out-os-x-yosemite-v10-10-3-with-wi-fi-fixes-new-photos-app?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+ziffdavis%2Fextremetech+%28Extremetech%29

OS X Daily "Anecdotally, OS X 10.10.3 is noticeably more stable than prior releases of OS X Yosemite. Despite those improvements, no general performance changes are noted in the release notes of OS X 10.10.3, and the WindowServer process may still go CPU wild from time to time when a Mac is not rebooted often enough. The inclusion of additional wi-fi fixes will make this release particularly important to many Mac users who have been struggling with wireless connectivity issues since the release of OS X Yosemite in prior versions." http://osxdaily.com/2015/04/08/os-x-10-10-3-yosemite-update-available-mac/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+osxdaily+%28OS+X+Daily%29

10.10.3 seemingly installed without a hitch. The Start Up and Shut Down are still glacial events. Photos App. and a little more CPU usage, while idling are the only changes I noticed.

And I found Photos to be a horrible Application, so I quickly uninstalled it, no harm, no foul. For I do not and will not use iCloud and I do not need my Photographs to appear as they would on an iPad or iPhone, for I own neither and have no plans to acquire either.

iPhoto will suffice, until I discover an alternative Photo management App. For editing photographs Gimp works great and offers more options.

Don't listen to the naysayers, this is a great release and it installs nicely, which is par for the course with Apple OS releases. Installed quickly on a 3.2GHz Mac Pro with 32G RAM and 16 Terabytes internal/8 External Terabytes and 2-30" Cinema Displays. Used CDock to remove the Dock Shelf. Ran AdwareMedic and scan came up empty. This is a keeper! Another topnotch Apple product.

Here is the direct link to 10.10.3 combo update, since it is not showing as of yet under Support/Downloads section on Apple.com, so the only other way to update otherwise is through the App Store Update feature, which doesn't leave a file to reuse later if you have multiple deployments. https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1804?locale=en_US

Downloaded and installed without a problem. Mac Pro 3.2GHz, 32G RAM, 24Terabytes of internal/external space and two 30" Cinema displays. This is a great release - fast, responsive, LOVE iPhoto so much more now. Will install on 13" MacBookPro, 16G RAM, 512G internal. Use CDock to remove the shelf on the Dock.

Easily the worst Apple system Ever! All you hear all day long is the Hard Drive chattering away, Which is why it's so God Damned slow older Macs, this system is for new Macs only, having said that I am on a 2009 iMac and it's glacial with Yosemite running! No wonder it's free, if I was charged money for this I'd be asking for a refund! Dreadful terrible awful I cannot express how poor this is!

Apple should stop giving their software out for free! Some people don't seem to be enjoying it...

Still slow....., buggy and saddled with unwanted annoyances. Maybe some day, they'll get it right, or back on course.

Best OS X ever. Sleek, grispy clean, snappy GUI. But I do think you need a Retina to enjoy it.

OSXDaily - OS X 10.10.2 Wi-Fi Issues Continue for Some Mac Users Some Mac users who have been experiencing longstanding wi-fi issues with OS X Yosemite have discovered that updating to OS X 10.10.2 does not resolve their networking difficulties. Perhaps more troubling, some Mac users who had functioning wi-fi previously have discovered that new wireless difficulties have appeared on their Macs after updating to the OS X 10.10.2 release of Yosemite. These cases are likely outliers, as OS X 10.10.2 has resolved wi-fi difficulties for some users as well. Nonetheless, we have received numerous reports about wi-fi issues appearing or persisting with OS X 10.10.2, and the large Apple thread on the topic continues to grow with user feedback about the same problem persisting. http://osxdaily.com/2015/01/30/os-x-10-10-2-yosemite-wi-fi-problems/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+osxdaily+%28OS+X+Daily%29
