    Public beta has a higher build number than dev preview 6?
    at the moment... for those that got Public Beta 5 before it became unavailable - apparently so.

    No, you shouldn't lose anything.

    It's a full OS install but doesn't reformat the HD or anything like that... that said, make sure you have a backup of anything you don't want to see gone forever... caveat emptor.

    PB 5 not downloading for me. It shows up, starts downloading, then just stops. If I quit, restart the App Store it shows back up, but does the same thing. Gonna try again tomorrow I guess.

    I updated my MB Pro with no issues. Not sure what could be the problem.

    I sold my Mac Mini, and got an iMac. Now the Apple beta software site is down for changes. No El Capitan for me.

    Maybe El Capitan will have public release in October, or will they announce it at the iPhone event?

    El Cap public release is Sept. 30th...

    Public Beta users can get the GM by opening the Mac AppStore, and going to their "Purchased" tab and the GM download is available there.

    Yes. It was a full install. Download and installation took a total of 1 hour and 40 mins. Up and running. So far so good.

    Sorry if this is a silly question, but, is the Feedback Assistant app still viable -or- should you delete once on the GM?
