I’d expect there to be an updated build of TeXLive as well as MacTeX with any updated software (TeXShop went to 3.99, LaTeXiT went to 2.9.1, etc.) enclosed.

PS: I have used TeXShop 3.98 on an El Capitan system without a crash. 

Good Luck,
Herb Schulz

If I start the executable (in Contents/MacOS) from the command line, it simply gives a message "Killed" and then stops. Info.plist reports the TeXShop version as 3.98
