What's New in Version 5.0 beta 1
- OS X Server 5.0 Beta 1 features a cleaner, more consistent user interface.
- OS X Server 5.0 Beta 1 is now operating system version independent.
The same version of Server can be used on Macs running OS X Yosemite 10.10.4 Beta and OS X v10.11 Developer Beta 1.
- OS X Server can perform network diagnostic tests to verify your server is accessible from the Internet.
New diagnostic tests include the ability to verify when specific websites are no longer reachable, and when DNS MX records are incorrectly configured or missing.
- Caching Server can accelerate the download of personalized data stored in iCloud, including photos and iCloud Drive.
Enabling iCloud Acceleration reduces the amount of iCloud data that needs to be downloaded when users have multiple devices on the same network.
- iOS 9 Beta 1 users can now easily access and store documents on OS X Server 5.0 Beta 1.
Once a share point is created, it can be shared to iOS devices, and made available via apps that support Document Provider API.
This allows users to open, edit and save documents from both iOS 9 Beta 1 and OS X v10.11 Developer Beta 1.
iOS 9 Beta users can discover and connect to OS X Server 5.0 Beta 1 using Bonjour, a configuration profile or by manual entering a server?s address.
- Profile Manager supports new MDM commands and queries as well as Configuration Profile payloads and settings introduced in iOS 9 Beta 1 and OS X v10.11 Developer Beta 1.
