Apple has published the eighth beta version of OS X El Capitan to developers. The operating system is expected to be released later this year, with an announcement coming at Apple’s September 9th event.

Today’s update, build 15A279b, is available through the software update mechanism in the Mac App Store and through the Apple Developer Center. There’s also a new sixth beta for public beta testers, which is identical to the eighth developer beta.

Apple has a media event planned for next Wednesday where it is expected to unveil new iPhones and a revamped Apple TV. If the company sticks to its usual release schedule, OS X 10.11 El Capitan will likely arrive to the general public later this fall

El Capitan will be a free upgrade for Mac users. It is portrayed as largely a polish of last year’s OS X 10.10 Yosemite, but will gain a handful of key new features like Split View, an enhanced Mission Control, and performance improvements.
