First things first! OS X El Capitan Beta 3 plus an up-to-date install makes audio enhancer Boom 2, well, boom again — huzzah! Additionally, a recent Acorn update seems to address OS X El Cap-related issues.
But that’s hardly the biggest news in this third OS X El Capitan Beta, which brings interesting changes and tweaks.
What’s new in OS X El Capitan Beta 3:
— Build number 15A216g
— Updated Two-Factor Authentication: Users are required to re-authenticate, Recovery Key will no longer be part of the process
— Photos app – New albums for selfies and screenshots in the Photos app
— The calendar app includes a new splash screen
— Mission Control drag n’ drop bug fixes
Apple has changed how Command + 1, 2, 3, etc work in Safari 9. Previously, pressing Command + 1 would open the respective website from the Bookmarks Bar. Now, however, Command + 1 [sic] acts as a tab switcher. There is apparently no way to bring back the old functionality via preferences.

Lastly, the OS X El Capitan Public Beta is “coming soon.” According to Apple, although no specific date is given, Apple Seeders will receive El Cap Beta 3, indicating the wait will likely be short.
OS X El Capitan Beta development is moving right along — what are you liking, loving and/or loathing?
