Apple just announced the next version of its OS X operating system at its Worldwide Developers Conference this morning. The successor of Yosemite will be OS X El Capitan, version 10.11. The update will be focused on user experience and performance.

Among the many new features is a big performance boost that should improve Adobe’s Creative Cloud software.

OS X El Capitan will include Apple’s Metal framework, which makes graphics rendering 40x more efficient than OpenGL, reducing CPU load and improving battery life.

Adobe is announcing that it will be adopting Metal in all of its OS X apps. The company says that tests it did with After Effects showed an impressive 8x improvement in rendering. No word yet on what kind of improvement this switch will have for photographers using Photoshop.

You may remember that Adobe just launched GPU support and performance boosts in Lightroom CC and Adobe Camera RAW 9. You can also tweak OpenGL settings for performance in Photoshop’s preferences.

El Capitan is being made available to developers starting today, and the official launch will be rolled out as a free upgrade later in the fall.

El Capitan is a shear cliff to climb in Yosemite would not like to fall off of that. I hope the Apple Metal framework works well on all display adapters Apple uses in Mac machines.  It seems to me we saw an large increase in the number of Mac user reporting Photoshop problems when the upgraded to Yosemite with what was displayed. I would be nice it things just worked like I here all the time.....

Why is it Apple's job to make Adobe's software work properly?

I just believe Apple should keep their OS compatible with software that  runs on prior versions of their OS.  I also think that Adobe should keep new version of Photoshop to be compatible with user assets they user in prior version of Photoshop. 

Clearly neither Apple or Adobe care about what I think they should do.

Apple's OS works just fine. It's Adobe's job to make your apps work properly on all platforms that their customers use. QuickLook has been around for a while on OSX yet it doesn't seem to work properly on some Adobe applications. When I'm in the Finder in Acrobat DC (in Yosemite) in column view the bottom half of my finder window is a big grey blank area (works fine in PS). I can only see the file system in the top quarter of the screen. Also, in column view in illustrator, the preview of the file (right side of the finder) is cut off and does not resize properly like it does in any other application that runs on my computer (including other Abobe apps). I could go on but I'm pretty sure you will blame it on user error or Apple. Your phone support also leaves alot to be desired. I'm open, what doesn't "work correctly" on Apple's OS?

If we told Apple (or Microsoft) that new versions of the OS had to be backwards compatible, we'd all still be either using Apple II OS (or a variant thereof) or MS-DOS...

About time Adobe. 1996 called and it asked for it‘s scrolling lag back.
In AI CC and ID CC navigation, screen update and rendering has been absolutely pathetic for years, even on high end platforms.
Get is done, it‘s a disgrace.

There isn't an official response or compatibility matrix from Adobe regarding OS X 10.11 and Adobe CC? This is ridiculous.
