iTunes 12.2.1 update (lists Apple Music/iTunes Match fixes):
Available via software update and www.apple.com/itunes/download/.
"iTunes 12.2.1
This update addresses the following problems when using iTunes Match or Apple Music:
  • Fixes an issue for iTunes Match users where iTunes incorrectly changed some songs from Matched to Apple Music.
  • Provides a way to correct a library problem affecting former iTunes Match subscribers.
  • Includes minor bug fixes and improvements for Beats 1."
  • Still some complaints in the iTunes forums on problems not solved. (There's a related troubleshooting article in today's apple support doc updates with a suggestion to remove and D/L songs again that were incorrectly downloaded as Apple Music.)

    Carbon Copy Cloner (beta) testing on OS X 10.11 'El Capitan' public beta:
    Update - they pulled the original article on OS X El Capitan and Third-party Backup Software (regarding System Integrity Protection and extended attribute on system folders) and now the link goes to a Status update: CCC beta testing on El Capitan beta. I've removed the clips w/comments from the original article. The blog now notes:
    "Editor's note: I previously noted some concerns here about an earlier release of 10.11. Those concerns are no longer relevant as of the public beta release of 10.11, so that content has been removed to avoid any unnecessary confusion. "

    (I've not tried OS X 10.11 beta but assume Disk Utility still has the "Restore" Tab for making a complete bootable copy of an OS X volume. Does it retain the "com.apple.rootless" extended attribute?)
