    If (crosses fingers, knock on wood) lion is released tomorrow, would I be able to upgrade my DP4 install to it?

    Thanks

    i dont see why not. But i think it will just notify you that Lion is available for an upgrade, and it will redirect you to the app store for the download. That way Apple can get your $29.99.

    GM has been out for a few weeks now. If you can/have upgraded to that; you're already at final.

    It's the same as GM.

    Okay can you upgrade to the GM/Release from DP4 or is a clean install over SL necessary?

    Well, probably. With iOS, there have occasionally been differences between the GM build and the release build. (For instance, presence of Game Center in iOS 4 release.) It's not going to be certain they're the same until we see the build that comes out tomorrow.
