    Apple has seeded OS X Lion 10.7.4 Build 11E46 to developers this evening.

    The latest build reportedly has no known issues and focus issues include the App Store, Mail, QuickTime, Screen Sharing, and Time Machine. The first developer build of 10.7.4 was seeded in March. 10.7.4 may be soon due for release.

    Development on OS X Lion (10.7.x) is presumably winding down as Apple has already pre-announced the next version of OS X. OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion) has seen two developer builds and will introduce a number of new iOS inspired features. 10.8 will become available sometime in the late summer.

    Still having some weird bugs since Lion's release.I hope 10.8 fixes them all, even though I probably won't be upgrading to it.

    10.6 for life.:cool:

    My 2011 iMac still takes some time to find the wifi connection when I wake it from sleep - anyone else having this problem?

    Does it fix the command-tab issue with Spaces where the selected app does not appear? It jumps to the correct space, but doesn't bring the appropriate app to the foreground.

    It amazes me Apple shipped Lion with that bug. It amazes me more that we are three updates into this OS, and it's still not fixed.

    My 2009 iMac doesn't that have that issue with Lion; is this problem specific to the 2011 iMacs?

    Does this mean that all Lion issues have been resolved or that no new problems have been introduced with any of the 10.7.4 changes?

    Probably the latter. :D

    It means there are no issues that can be duplicated on every machine they have in their lab.

    I was just about to downgrade to 10.6 but now I will wait it out for this .4 update and see how it is.


    That's what happens when you don't focus on the OSX and instead focus on iOS :rolleyes:

    I still can't understand how they have not fixed Bluetooth File Exchange in browse mode. The buttons are missing!

    If Apple is going to move to a faster OS development cycle, they need to move to a faster bug-fixing cycle. There are still WiFi connection issues in Lion, among other things. Hope they are fixed with Mountain Lion...

    Does this finally fix the issue where Lion considers network Time Machine backups corrupt as has to redo the backup? Snow Leopard was really good with network Time Machine backups. Lion has been terrible.

    The fun world of software development... That could very likely be some random program you have, messing with the backup and unintentionally causing corruption. I say this based on the fact that I don't have this issue.

    does this fix the disaster that Mission Control is? I'd like to see the option to ungroup windows when activating mission control from a hot corner.

    I have read of several users having this issue with both the Time Capsule and third party alternatives. I would like Apple to solve this issue and fix it. Backup software should be the most reliable of a company's software and not half-baked.

    Notice that Apple are still getting over bugs in Mail at the 10.7.4 stage. Mail, for me, is the lifeline for my business. Everything comes through Apple Mail.

    That is why I never upgrade any Mac OS until it reaches around 10.x.6 when it is getting pretty rock stable. Right now Snow Leopard 10.6.8 is a dream - and there's nothing in Lion and even Mountain Lion that makes me yearn to upgrade (except perhaps all disk encryption).

    Early adoption (i.e. beta testing) is all right for those people who just use their Macs for social email, Facebook and watching movies and reading websites - but I run my business on Mac. If your Mac and Apple Mail crashed, it would be irritating, but life would continue. Not so when you're using your Mac for business. I cannot afford to be a beta-tester for Apple.

    From my experience with Leopard and Snow Leopard, Apple were still fixing bugs in Mail well up to the .6 iteration of those OS's. I remember. I lived through them. That's when I vowed never to upgrade an Apple OS until it reaches at least x.6 and preferably x.7 or x.8.

    Why the heck are they releasing 10.8 so soon after 10.7? Isn't it better to let 10.7 mature a bit, get all the bugs out, and have a nice stable user experience before they dive into the next release?

    This sort of rapid release is just going to result in a buggier OS overall, since it'll spend less time in "maintenance" mode... which is when you find most of the subtle bugs.

    Mission Control wasn't 'fixed' in 10.7.1 or 2 or 3, isn't 'fixed' in 10.7.4, and won't be 'fixed' in 10.8.

    Seriously people...get over it.

    ...or stick with your beloved Snow Leopard.

    All I want is fine grade audio level control like in Snow Leopard (option-shift-adjustments).

    I can confirm this has been reinstated in recent builds. Both audio and brightness controls are back.
