Right on schedule and right on the mark, or close enough for a developer seed. OS X Yosemite Beta 6 (aka build 14A3429f, Developer Preview 6, DP6) is available to devs Software Update and, though no major new features have arrived, these are plenty of small changes.

The one thing that people talking? With OS X Yosemite Beta 6, Apple has bundled five new Yosemite Wallpapers, which we’ve zipped up and posted for download.

Here is a fairly lengthy though not exhaustive listing of new and/or tweaked features in this Yosemite beta:

• New Drive, App Icons

    Why do you insist on calling the Developer Preview a beta? There was only one Beta version. It was open to the public, and has not been updated once since its release. The Developer Preview is available only to developers, and has been regularly updated.
