Apple Seeds OS X Lion 10.7.4 Build 11E52 to Developers




Apple is continuing its roughly biweekly release cycle for developer builds of OS X 10.7.4, pushing out Build 11E52 for testing yesterday.




As with the last several builds, Apple lists no known issues. The company is also asking developers to focus their testing on Graphics, iCal, Mail, Printing, and Time Machine.

Work on OS X 10.7.4 continues as Apple is also pushing forward on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, which is due for release in "late summer". Earlier this week, Apple released its third developer preview of Mountain Lion for testing.

(Thanks, TTR!)

Actually 10.7.4 should be out before the start of summer. (Northern Hemisphere)

If there are no known issues, then why are apple making pointless software updates?

Or us there something we are not being told about?

I take it you're not a developer. And don't know anything about development.

When it says there are no known issues, that means that they've fixed all the problems they knew about. That doesn't mean it doesn't need testing and that it doesn't fix bugs from the previous release (which it most certainly does). There's absolutely nothing pointless about this, and the fact you would say something like that has me absolutely puzzled.

Actually when they say no known issues they mean that no issues known can be replicated on all machines simultaneously. When you make a bugreport while using these seeds, most of the time you get "this issue is already known" reply, yet those are not listed in these seed notes.

W/O breaking my NDA, this and the previous beta has a graphical animation issue with "Time Machine". When opening Finder and "Time Machine", the opening animation and moving between time creates distortion. I filed this bug with engineers on the last build, and there are threads in ADC forums. I don't know why it hasn't been addressed as it is recognized as a known issue.

I've also filed a ton of reports on "Mission Control"/Spaces/Expose in Lion and Mountain Lion, as well as other ADC members. Engineers have recognized it as a known issue, but seem disinterested. Oh well. They did fix powersupply kext issues that caused kernel panics for some, I had to manually fix that by using .2 kexts. Otherwise, this build seems pretty solid. I'd expect a release very soon.

I suspect people who develop software for a living are not sympathetic to the attitude that a vendor coming out with a routine update is actually attempting some sort of coverup.

Apple seems highly motivated to put Lion to pasture. It's likely a key part of their strategy to force more users to adopt the latest version of OS X which in turn pulls them into iCloud.

With Cloud computing drawing so much attention, Apple needs more people using iCloud to bolster Apples ability to boast about their accomplishments. Grabbing headlines and keeping the buzz going is critical to Apples quest for total domination.

Although the massive profits Apple is currently generating put them in the lead, there's more to be had. The faster they can influence current users to replace their Apple computers with new ones the happier Apple will be. The fewer machines on 10.6 and older the better Apple will like it.

In all the years I've used Apples computers, I've never witnessed a push like this to get the majority of their user base converted to the latest OS. Giving out free copies of 10.6 is just one more example of this effort. It's an interesting tactic on Apples part.

Hm. That's too bad. Most likely means we're at least one more build away from a release version.

To clarify, my "why?" post was in response to the first comment in the thread. Thought I had quoted his post but I'm using my iPhone so I obviously made a mistake.

my apologies,

i had misinterpreted what the thread post had said. i thought by 'no know issues' as that of the previous update, not what other have thought it as. thats why i thought it was pointless.

and i don't know anything about development or haven't tried it on mac OS
because
1. im too young to know about this complicated stuff (not saying my real age.)

2. i have never owned a mac in my life.

Oh the humanity.. you don't OWN a mac?! I just wasted five minutes reading through all the posts prompted by your comment, and you... don't... own... a... mac.

Not beating up on you, but wow.

Is there any word on whether or not 10.7.4 will include updated drivers for the Intel Integrated 3000HD gfx card?

Point updates have new GPU drivers, 99% of the time. But that doesn't mean the updated driver will do what you want it to do. Mostly they are bugfix updates.

All the drivers along with OpenGL have been updated based on then version being listed in 'System Information' but that may have to do with something unrelated to any sort of changes to the drivers themselves - that OpenGL had bug fixes and the video drivers are part of the rebuilding that takes place.

On a good side the Wifi drivers for the iMac 2011 have been updated.
