Just seen that this new update has been seeded to developers. The headline feature is the inclusion of a iClould beta, but has anyone noticed any other features? I really want to see if it improves RAM usage, and therefore battery life. :apple:

I installed 10.7.2 today. Yes, it has an updated iCloud Preferences pane and, yes, the RAM usage is significantly less. On the GM I had about 4/8GB free. Now, I have nearly 6/8GB free.

I've heard that it's purely iCloud changes, not fixes to other problems or enhancements to existing features. I guess that'll come in 10.7.1 which does seem odd.

Apple is so modern that they're releasing an update from the future!

I only install updates that show up in Software Update, not some random online torrent or elsewhere. That's just asking for trouble.

I agree, it says, This pre-release version of OS X Lion is being provided solely for testing iCloud. There probably won't be a lot of fixes or any. They will release 10.7.1 to developers first.

10.7.2 is available to developers on the Apple website.

Because i'm SURE everyone here, who has loaded it, is a bone fide OS X developer who actually has reason to load 10.7.2 before 10.7.1 is even released. :rolleyes:

Right, but your original post made it sound like this was some sort of shady beta that had accidentally leaked onto the internet.

Is there really a significant difference?

10.7.2 is not going to get released before 10.7.1. This would be beta, at best. Load at your own risk.

Well, no luck here. Just installed 10.7.2, and I see no difference what so ever in memory handling and battery life. :(

I would highly advise the non-developers to not install 10.7.2. It is still prerelease software, so it could cause more problems than it solves.
