OS X Yosemite Beta 6 Seeded to Devs
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
— New hard drive, as well as Font Book, Mission Control, Notes, Terminal and Script Editor.
— Like, love or just plain need ALL of the OS X Yosemite icons? Download ’em all here!

• Xcode 6 beta 6 also seeded to devs
• Updated battery/charging icon in the Menu Bar
• Do Not Disturb
— “Do Not Disturb” button in the Notification Center is back in Yosemite Beta 6

• Volume and Brightness HUDs have been tweaked (more/again)

• New Diagnostics and Usage page at startup
• New Safari Preferences icons
