Apple has pushed out Build 11D50 of OS X 10.7.3 to registered developers. Apple continues to report no known issues in the seed notes, and asks developers to focus their testing on Address Book, iCal, Mail, Spotlight and Safari.




The previous builds had appeared to be close to a final release, but Apple is clearly still making some final tweaks to the update. The release description has indicated that the main improvements in OS X 10.7.3 will be support for several new languages and fixes for issues related to smart cards, directory services authentication, and Windows file sharing.

Still Shakin'

I'm pleasantly surprised that none of the 10.7.xx builds have broken Shake. Nice to still have that app in Lion. Been great so far.

If I remember correctly, Samba was removed in favour of a new Apple technology?
Yes, this is correct. The command line tools are the same, but the underlying SMB implementation is theirs. I guess they weren't happy with the open source project's progression, at least for the mac (I sure wasn't).

well the list of changes state "Address compatibility issues with Windows file sharing"

Might be related?

I installed the last beta version and it didn't restore samba the way it used to be. I really think iTunes broke samba to be honest. if you do a fresh install on 10.7 and the newest iTunes it will upgrade to the file sharing protocol.

I wish apple would give us the chance to pick which one we would like to use.

I hope this will finally fix the wifi/authentican problem with Safari when accessing a internet signal with authentican page..

If this upadate doesn't fix it i'm probably going to put that lion back in the cage... it's ridicoulous that apple have done nothing about this before now.

Overall its not a massive update is it. Languages? smart cards?

When will we get major GPU driver updates, a fix for the broken multi-display system, tweaking of animations and general speed improvements. 10.7.4 i hope.

Really? LoL! They were doing you a favor by not mentioning you. The whole NDA thing and all. But i guess if its that important to you, thanks MACDUDEROBERT, for letting us know!
Quite honestly it does not mean that much to me, as a longtime fan/reader I felt like finally 'pitching in'. Certainly not looking to start a flame war :eek:

So..... Is 10.7.3 anymore stable than 10.7.2? Xcode is slow as hell, and Lion's general performance is.... lacking to be honest.

If performance isn't any better, I'm thinking about downgrading to Snow Leopard. (via new partition.)

I guess there isn't any major new features, just bug fixes?

I was hoping for iMessage integration, full screen multimonitor changes, or a couple of other things like the last update that included iCloud.

Finder needs a REFRESH BUTTON (Like F5 in Windows). I work with Network Folders that do not refresh when changes are made by the remote computer.

When the hell are they going to fix Samba already..
What are some of the problems with Samba? I use it to transfer from my MBP to my Windows desktop with my hard drive stack and have issues transfering for more than 10-15 minutes at a time, usually I have to reboot the Windows machine to get back to transferring again.

I was thinking that it was probably my router (a super crappy router that U-Verse gives you, only 100T!). I'd hate to plop $150+ on a router and have it not solve my issues.

Nope, there was no reason to believe that, MR just made that assumption based on release notes being added. That's an indication that it's getting closer but release could be soon after that or there could be many more betas.

I was under the impression that they had to stop using it because of licensing issues. Hopefully it will get improved so it works as well or better than the previous implementation, but they're definitely not going to go back to the old code.

The new Samba precompiled with OSX 10.7 no longer works with devices like Tivx, PopcornHour, BoxeeBox you need to install Xcode, macports and samba 3.0 in order to regain connectivity again. Mac to Mac works fine it just older clients.

Can't see them changing that> I think the ethos is that the Finder updates automatically. Maybe they need to work some bugs out?

Refresh Finder is a handy AppleScript wrapped in an app. The apps icon is designed to match those in your finder's toolbar. Simply drag it to your toolbar hold it for a few seconds and drop it in place.

I use it often, it works great... albiet a bit slow when refreshing network folders.

Actually I found that a couple of days ago. Just crazy you need to add something that should be there. But you are right, the App works great.
