    A GM release of OS X Lion was seeded to developers this afternoon, with a build number of 11A511, according to 9to5Mac. The developer site has since been taken down, with no explanation given.

    A GM release is typically the final build before a piece of software ships to consumers. If no major bugs are found, Lion should be ready to go.

    Oh boy! I was hoping for this today, dp4 has been so buggy. Maybe another iOS 5 beta before days end.

    Whoever installs it first, which version of iTunes does it include? Thanks.

    Well I've been using Lion DP4 as my daily OS since its release, so I might as well wait until the official release.

    With this version everything is easier, but you will no longer be able to surf the internet. Or open any files you created while using any previous software...it is that much of an improvement.

    Awesome! I've been holding off on putting Lion on my main partition for a while but I think I'm ready to do it now! The lat dev release was very stable and I considered it but now I'm glad I waited.

    God help us all then, because it really feels too soon.

    Edit: What? hate to hear the truth?

    The dev site isn't down. I got in to get my Lion code with ease. The site wasn't even slow.

    There are no Change Notes though.
