On October 2, 2015, IT Services posted a notice discouraging Mac users from upgrading to Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan), a version that was released by Apple on September 30, 2015.
Here are recommendations if you choose to upgrade:
- If you use SMART Notebook software, please contact SMART Technologies for an update that supports OS X El Capitan.
- If you are running Microsoft Office 2011, please install the 14.5.6 update for OS X El Capitan compatibility.
- If you are running Microsoft Office 2016, please install the 15.16 update as well as the OS X El Capitan v10.11.1 update. These updates are available to download through the Microsoft AutoUpdate and Apple Software Update tools respectively.
…for other OS X versions, you may be required to re-install the drivers after you upgrade.
IT Services tested Follow-you printing after upgrading from Yosemite (only) to El Capitan, and the printing drivers appear to be working. However, for other OS X versions, you may be required to re-install the drivers after you upgrade. If you have any issues with printing after your upgrade, please contact the Solutions Centre.
We recommend following Apple’s guidance on upgrading OS X.
Please contact the ITS Solutions Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org or 403-329-2490 if you require additional information or require assistance.
