Apple today unveiled OS X 10.11 at its Worldwide Developers Conference, showing off the first major revision of the Mac's operating system since last year's Yosemite.

 

The new OS X is named "El Capitan".

 

Developers are being given a preview version of OS X El Capitan today and a public beta will be available this summer.

 

The final version will be available to the general public in the fall.

QE/CI now based on Metal instead of openGL. That should bring a much needed boost to system fluidity.

 

I wonder what the hardware requirements are gonna be for this to work!!!

 

I'm really interested in this. Can't wait.

What do you mean? Shouldn't it work on the current gen HW?

aha I got it now, El Capitan is just a vertical rock in Yosemite National Park. So this is just Yosemite updated. Oh well that maybe a good thing.

Metal sounds nice for real Macs, but I'm really wondering if this will render graphic card compatibility even more restricted in our Hacks ! There is probably some low-level driver stuff going on, meaning the graphic card drivers may have to provide the metal API, so what about the future of the Nvidia web drivers for example ?

Can someone please suggest the correct Terminal command to get this version to show up in the App Store?

 

This is as close as I have gotten (It works but it doesn't give me any update for 10.11):

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate CatalogURL https://swscan.apple.com/content/catalogs/others/index-10.11seed-10.11-10.10-10.9-mountainlion-lion-snowleopard-leopard.merged-1.sucatalog.gz

Yes is a good idea. I had to use also interest the seed of 10.11 El Capitan

 

What is the right seed entry in the com.apple.SoftwareUpdates.plist?

I call it Yosemite 2.0   :P

SL was what Leopard should have been

ML was what Lion should have been

Mavericks was and still is what it should have been

El Capitan is what Yosemite should have been

I've always considered Mavericks the "ML 2.0", since I didn't feel much of a difference between the two.
