    Apple has apparently just pushed out an update to its Mac OS X Lion Developer Preview 2 initially released late last month. While the changes included in the update obviously fall short of qualifying for an entirely new "Developer Preview 3", it is unknown exactly what tweaks have been made with the new update.
    The update is appearing in Software Update for those with the Lion Developer Preview 2 installed, and Apple has sent out an email alerting all Mac OS X developers about the release. We've been told that the new build is 11A430e, compared to 11A419 for the original Developer Preview 2.

    I'm really liking how Apple are putting these dev previews and updates out (no physical disks and such).

    I wonder what's different in this one? Release log anyone?

    does this still have lag/freezing issues?

    I know when lion beta was first released it would lag and freeze a lot! also it was very unstable, 80% of the apps would crash constantly.

    1. Pay $99 to get into the Apple developer program.
    2. Download and install in new partition.

    I hope this OS is to be bought & downloaded through the App Store and updates come through the generic "software update".

    With the update notice officially stating When Lion ships this summer What are the chances the iMac refresh will happen at the same time? or will it be in the Fall instead?

    I think iMac overhaul is in the fall right after the back to school deals are over......

    Looks like mostly bug fixes. Only thing new I have found is the result of putting a window out of focus.

    iCal is still same design too.

    Problem is the App Store. I don't think Apple thought about this in regards to the Mac App store having larger programs. Sure the iOS App store is easy....most apps are small.

    The latest patch to Aperture for example.....I bought through the App store....and it had to download 600+ MB as the whole app just to patch, whereas people who already had it got a delta update through Software Update.

    Here's hoping in Lion they merge the two somehow....at least with Apple apps.

    Oh my! I downloaded the software update for Developer Preview 2 and now I just have a blank white screen when I reboot.

    I have tried to reboot multiple times and I have let the computer set for a while with no change. Still just a blank white screen.

    Well, I am able to run it by booting into safe mode. After running in safe mode and then rebooting, it cleared a startup cache and then it booted up in normal mode, but crashed with a grey screen immediately to power the computer off. I am still able to boot and run in safe mode okay.

    I am using a new 2011 MBP 13" with 8GB RAM and the i7 CPU.
