It's been almost a month since the release of Mountain Lion DP1, so when do you think we'll see a second developer preview?

I'm also anxious to get DP2.

P.S. Been 23 days precisely.

Same here. I'm waiting anxiously for the full iCloud integration.

What exactly do you mean by 'full iCloud integration'?

IWork probably.

That'll be an iWork update, nothing to do with ML.

Somewhere between now and the release date of Mountain Lion.

IWork probably.

Yes, I was referring to iWork and the whole Documents in the Cloud in general. I'm assuming they'll release a beta version of iWork for developers to try out sometime soon.

Looking back on Lion, DP 1 was released on Feb 24th, DP2 on March 31st, DP3 on May 13th, and DP4 on Jun 6th.

So taking the time differentials, thats something like 25-45 days between releases roughly.

Mountain Lion DP1 came out on Feb 16th. I'll place my bet and say that the next preview wil come out at the end of next week.

Why would they? The iWork update just uses iCloud APIs already in Mountain Lion. The developers have no need to test iWork, and I can't remember the last time Apple offered a beta of their apps. Messenger is the only one I can remember, and that's part of ML anyway.

Well, there were several updates to the DPs during that time as well. The full schedule for Lion was:

## --- Build # ---- Date ------------ Interval
01 --- 11A390 ---- Feb 24, 2011 -- 4 Mos, 4 Dys (from announcement)
02 --- 11A419 ---- Mar 30, 2011 -- 4 Wks, 6 Dys (from last seed)
02a -- 11A430e -- Apr 15, 2011 -- 2 Wks, 2 Dys (from last seed)
02b -- 11A444d -- Apr 29, 2011 -- 2 Wks, 0 Dys (from last seed)
03 --- 11A459e -- May 13, 2011 -- 2 Wks, 0 Dys (from last seed)
04 --- 11A480b -- Jun 6, 2011 ---- 3 Wks, 3 Dys (from last seed)
04a -- 11A494a -- Jun 15, 2011 -- 1 Wks, 2 Dys (from last seed)
GM --- 11A511* -- Jul 1, 2011 ---- 2 Wks, 2 Dys (from last seed)

The time between the 1st & 2nd was a month, then a new version or update every two weeks (on average).

No personal experience with DP2 yet, unfortunately, only DP1. You may want to check http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1325197&page=15 though.

Hope so. DP2 has been a lot buggier than DP1 for me.

I'm hoping they will get Messages fixed. It's currently so buggy and a mess.
