Any of you going to give this a try?  How about all of you who are already running the beta – any cautions for the rest of us?


EDIT:  I didn't sign up for the public beta, but would like to hear more from you who are testing.  Do you like what you see?

There was an issue with the 3rd developer preview that caused Accordance to crash when opening the library window (Nathan Parker reported on it here--although I might suggest his use of major was a bit of hyperbole   ;) ).


That issue went away for me in the 4th preview, which I believe is what is being released in the beta program today. I haven't had some of the other random crashes in Accordance that Nathan described in the above-linked thread.


I've had trouble with folder icons disappearing, but a reinstall today fixed that.


A handful of programs have not worked on and off with the previews.


I would definitely say not to install the beta if you only have one Mac. I'm down to one Mac and I installed anyway, only to regret it afterwards. Each build has naturally seen improvement, but I've been part of Apple's appleseed program for a number of years, and Yosemite was initially the buggiest OS X beta I've used. I think that's because Yosemite is a very significant update compared to some of the recent updates.


If you only have one Mac, I would suggest proceeding with great caution.
