Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite icon

Plex icon with Apple TV logoPlex (v0.9.11.0, October 12, 2014), PlexConnect (v0.5, December 14, 2014) and OpenPlex (beta 0.4.2, January 15, 2015) running on Apple TV 7.0.3 (“iOS 8.1.3”) and Mac OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite beta 1 (build number 14D72i) released on February 5, 2015. I positively tested on an Apple TV 3 running on Apple TV 7.0.3 software and Apple TV 7.1 beta 1 software

Mac OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite beta 1 adds the awaited new Photos app and the WiFi issues seem to be resolved at last.

Plex, PlexConnect and OpenPlex are working on Mac OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite beta1:
