Looks like Apple doesn’t want Microsoft to hog the OS spotlight today with its announcement of Windows 10. As Microsoft was unveiling its next iteration of Windows, Apple quietly pushed out the first GM Candidate for OS X Yosemite, a firm indicator that we’re on track for a public OS X Yosemite release in the very near future. For members of the public beta test program Apple today released OS X Yosemite Beta 4.

OS X Yosemite GM Candidate 1.0 weighs in around 857MB and carriers build number 14A361c. Along with it Apple has also released Xcode 6.1 GM seed and OS X Server 4.0 Developer Preview. Apple has told developers that they can now submit apps and app updates to Mac App Store build with Xcode 6.1 GM seed.

A new security vulnerability was discovered recently named “Shellshock.” Apple has already issued a fix for OS X Mountain Lion and Mavericks and with its latest pre-release beta for developers it has also fixed the bash security issue in OS X Yosemite.

When Yosemite was unveiled back in June Apple said that it would be released later this fall. Since iOS 8 has already been rolled out all eyes are on the company now to quickly release its new OS X iteration.

It is widely believed the OS X Yosemite will be released to the public some time next month, a formal release date has not been confirmed by Apple as yet.
