I haven't gotten any notice from Apple, though I did get a beta of Safari a while back.Apple today released the public beta of OS X 10.10 Yosemite!
Simultaneously, we’ve published Joe Kissell’s “Take Control of Beta Testing Yosemite.” You can buy it now for a suggested price of $5 from Leanpub. Read on for all the details, or just click the link to get your ebook:
OK. Apparently even though Apple's last e-mail on this said they'd e-mail me, here's the procedure. This web page includes instructions in case your redemption code doesn't work. http://www.idownloadblog.com/2014/07/24 ... -beta-fix/
Note, especially this caveat from Apple:
iOS8 does not have a public beta, so unless you're a registered developer, you'd better not enable iCloud Drive during setup.Enabling iCloud Drive
After you install the OS X Yosemite Beta, you will be asked whether you wish to upgrade your account to iCloud Drive. If you choose to upgrade your account, iCloud Documents and Data will be disabled on devices that are not running OS X Yosemite or iOS 8. iCloud Drive will be available only on other Macs using the OS X Yosemite Beta and iOS devices running iOS 8. If you want to continue using iCloud Documents and Data on devices with earlier versions of OS X and iOS, you should not upgrade your account to iCloud Drive.
So I have Yosemite downloading. But I may have to pause it later to let Netflix do its thing.
So while I was blathering on here, I got the e-mail from Apple.
