    I think the last developer preview of 10.7.4 was like April 23rd? I might be mistaken. That being said 10.7.3. came out Feb. 1st. That was exactly 3 months ago now. Maybe next month, I guess.

    As for the questions about stability. Most updates add stability to all those core functions you listed.

    I haven't notices much of an update in 10.7.3. Perhaps a bit in memory usage, but nothing to really care about.

    The delta update from 10.7.3 is 716.9MB, so likely a lot of bug fixes and optimizations. I haven't tried the developer seeds, but I'm not having any issues with 10.7.3 either.

    It probably mostly bug fixes which will of course add to stability. Probably graphics drivers for as of yet to be released Macs. And the release date is probably soon™.

    I saw a big change from 10.7.2 to 10.7.3. Granted I am on one of the machines that it from day one had problems with that 10.7.3 finally fixed along with the Wi-Fi update patch.

    I really hope they fix the **** wi-fi issue. I'm tired of dealing with loss of wi-fi on 10.7.3 when 10.7.2 never had a problem.

    I'm waiting for Mail fixes. It hangs 50% of the time for about 30 seconds when I reboot or shutdown. (Sometimes I just force quit it)

    But I'm not getting my hopes up as everyone I know just lets their machines sleep and never come across this issue.

    I haven't had any issues with the last build of 10.7.4 (which will likely be the final release, 11E53). One exciting bug that is finally fixed (took long enough): Lion actually respects the "Do Not Restore Windows on Shutdown/Restart" preference, no hacks required. Also, the GPU drivers and OpenGL stack have been updated. Since I didn't have any severe performance problems with 10.7.3 though, I'm not sure if things like memory management have been improved. It does seem absurd that Apple is already releasing 10.8 when fundamental bugs in Lion are just now being addressed. I wonder if 10.7.4 will mark the end of support for Lion, like 10.6.8 ended support for Snow Leopard?

    I totally agree with you with Lion still have many problems and in cupertino they are going to release a new OS:confused:.
    I dont think there are gonna end the support of an OS that is one year old pro users there are not going to update to 10.8 immediately because there will be stability problems with apps so..we wait to see.

    At the very least we'll see critical/security updates for Lion once Mountain Lion is out. And it is possible we'll see one more regular update for Lion after Mountain Lion is out. This has happened in the past.

    The 10.7.4 kernel supports new Apple hardware (Ivy Bridge MBA, for example).

    Not possible. Ivy Bridge ULV and chipset arn't out yet and 10.7.4 is near completion.

    Hopefully this week. Would love to have the latest drivers for Diablo III, if there's any optimization.

    And you think manufacturers wanting to include these chips into their products will have to wait until they can buy them in the stores?

    Apple, Sony, Dell etc. will have had Ivy Bridge samples for testing and development for a few months now...

    Yes, but they are not going to release unfinished drives in an update for unfinished hardware.

    They would just have to release another update to replace them anyway.

    I test mountain lion dp3 and its very very stable not bugs or any sort of problems so far my final cut studio works perfectly and the most important its very fast faster i think its faster than lion 10.7.3
