Mac OS X El Capitan (10.11.x) released to the public on September 30, 2015. This page will be updated as new developments arise.

As with all operating system upgrades, there are potential issues of compatibility with applications and services. If you have a question as to whether an application you are using will be compatible with El Capitan, please check with the Helpdesk or with the application vendor.

October 1, 2015: Based on instability in core productivity software used in most campus offices, ITS has elected, at this time, to block the availability of “El Capitan” to college Macintosh computers. We are seeking volunteers who do not rely on the Microsoft Office suite to test “El Capitan” with other applications they use on a frequent basis. If you are interested, create a ticket, providing the computer number.

Current Known Issues & Areas of Concern

  1. Junos Pulse VPN client - broken with beta 2 release of El Capitan
  2. Microsoft Office 2011 for Mac is incompatible with El Capitan
  3. Outlook for Mac version 2016 is experiencing stability issues (Yosemite & El Capitan).
