Lion DP4 is the Gold Master.
GM which is not installing onto 2011 macbooks ?
I certainly hope not. It's pretty stable but still needs work on it...
Edit: Actually, there is no way it is the GM version: If it were it would just say "Mac OS X Lion" when you download it, not "Mac OS X Lion Developer Preview 4": The whole point of a GM is it is exactly what will be released (assuming no last minute issues)
Apple tends to put GM in the link of the download, there are known issues listed, and it does not work on 2011 MBPs. This may be the last before the GM but since there is plenty of time until release I would assume we see one more release before GM if not two.
Besides BlackMangoTree, no one
I actually heard this from people at a Mac store here in Australia.
Apple retail employees know less or equal to the general public as far as release dates.
DP4 is certainly not a GM.
And probably less than the average macrumors reader
I still have some doubt's, i do think this is the GM.
There's nothing but doubts about DP4 being the GM.
I would bet GM in a week or two, but this release is still extremely close to final.
Yeah, maybe another small update to DP4. GM will come along early July probs.
Obviously you don't know what GM means then. If it is the GM, what would be the point of waiting until July to release it? There are still too many installation problems, especially for 2011 MBPs.
really? :roll eyes:
It works on my 2011 MBP though..... In fact, I'm running Lion DP4 right now on my 2011 MBP, although it's quite buggy....
What is buggy? I have had the opposite experience from DP3 to DP4 is like night and day. No bugs for me so far.
How do you know that? There is absolutely no proof and I don't understand why you post something like that.
sound like a bunch of whiney girls!
Boot up takes over 1min
In Safari the previous function by swiping doesn't work like it should, half of the time it won't load the page
Every time I disconnect my secondary display (iMac) things get really buggy, the background disappears, and often the menubar as well....
Sending e-mails often doesn't work, it doesn't send, but when I close mail and open it again it will begin sending the mail.
and preview doesn't work at all for videos....
Interesting. I never really timed the boot time, but does not seem excessive on my system. No problems with external displays. Also not experiencing any other of your problems. File some bug reports.
I'm on DP4 as well at the moment, didn't have any major problems so far.
Multi-touch gestures are sometimes a bit annoying and don't work properly. (2-finger swipe to go back and forth doesn't always do what it should etc.)
But apart from that I didn't have any problems. Thought I still don't think it's the GM. As someone pointed out - "Instructional movies coming soon" are pretty good hints.
Of course it's not GM. Why are people doubting that? It's obvious, I had to hack my way in to getting Lion on my MBP and I can't install it on my 2009 iMac at all....
Obvious, but some people want to believe what some people want to believe . . .
