Yosemite

aka. MacOS X 10.10. Release in October 2014 as a free upgrade for people with existing MacOS X installations on compatible hardware.

Changes to the user interface are readily visible, but there have also been modifications to the underlying infrastructure.

Issues

Lync

Version 14.09 for MacOS X seems to have been broken by the upgrade from 10.9 to 10.10. The problem seems to be related to language settings according to this blog and they point to this fix.

Java

There does not seem to be a java installed by default in Yosemite. If you have applications that need java this link may meet your needs.

From what we have observed, if you use the Java 6 runtime  in a 10.9/8 environment, updating to Yosemite removes this. When you try to run something that expects Java, then you will see an alert that may direct you to the download indicated above.

Oracle has a FAQ on what  java 7 or 8 will install on OS X Yosemite, There are links to the versions for both Java 7 and 8.

Matlab

Mathworks reports that Matlab 2014b will work with OS X 10.10 Yosemite, but has also provided patches for earlier versions of Matlab. Some of them are available from smb:\scidrive.uoa.auckland.ac.nzsit$softwarematlabYosemite Patches.

Matlab 2014b is now available in smb:\sit-buildPACKAGESMathWorksMATLABisosR2014b_maci64.iso .

Printing

Moving to OS X 10.10 may break printing to  direct printers such as those used in some departments including direct CAPS Printers.
