    As somebody who's been using 16b1 a lot and 16b2 the past two days, I'll say that most of the changes seem to be fixes to the Windows platform, not OSX. I will say that I've been pretty happy with things so far--crashes are not very frequent, and when I'm saving my work as I should, not devastating at all. R3D playback performance is not fully up to scratch. I wish Apple and AMD would surprise us with great playback capabilities using Vega64 on Metal or OpenCL. The new scopes are amazing.
