OS X 10.11 El Capitan features improved performance, better battery life, new split screen apps usage, enhanced Mission Control along with improvements and new features for Mail, Safari, Notes and much more. Having used the beta for a while now on a 2013 MacBook Air, I can confirm that this release is worth the update and addresses most complaints that users had with OS X 10.10 Yosemite. However, many old iMac users have not been too happy with the betas so it is yet to be seen whether the GM or public release fix their concerns or not.

OS X 10.11 GM build will not be available as an OTA update via Mac App Store for existing developer beta and public beta users. If you download the GM seed, you would have download the installer and do an upgrade manually.
