Following in the footsteps of yesterday's release of iOS 5.1 Beta 3, Apple today seeded a new version of OS X 10.7.3 to registered Mac developers. The new version, termed Build 11D42, comes three weeks after the previous build, but the development team's work was undoubtedly slowed due to the holidays.




According to those familiar with the update, Apple is asking developers to focus their testing on the following areas: Address Book, iCal, Mail, Spotlight, and Safari. The delta version of the new build for updating from OS X 10.7.2 weighs in at 989.75 MB, while a combo version good for updating from any previous version of OS X Lion weighs in at 1.26 GB.

OS X 10.7.3 will be Apple's next free maintenance update for OS X Lion users. The current version, OS X 10.7.2, was released in mid-October and brought support for Apple's new iCloud services. OS X 10.7.3 developer builds have so far released a few hints of Apple's work, including drivers for new graphics cards that could appear in an updated Mac Pro and active efforts on HiDPI display modes that could come to fruition in a "Retina" MacBook Pro rumored for release early this year.

Update: We're hearing that the new Build 11D42 is likely to be either the golden master version of OS X 10.7.3 that will be released to the public or very close to it. Consequently, a public release could come in the relatively near future.

Update 2: Build 11D42 contains what is likely to be the final release description for OS X 10.7.3:
The 10.7.3 update is recommended for all OS X Lion users and includes general operating system fixes that improve the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac including fixes that:

- Add Catalan, Croatian, Greek, Hebrew, Romanian, Slovak, Thai, and Ukrainian language support
- Address issues when using smart cards to log into OS X
- Resolve issues authenticating with directory services
- Address compatibility issues with Windows file sharing

Wish Apple would push forward OpenGL...

At least be at the latest revision of the standard.

I hope this fixes a lot of the glitches we experience using Exchange in iCal.

Wouldn't hurt if it fixed instant on.
Maybe make the Air not get up to 100C when waking up from deep sleep for no reason.

And most importantly, I hope it makes it possible to have 2 apps in fullscreen at the same time, 3 would be awesome.

I know it's of little importance to Apple, but I wish they'd optimise the graphics drivers for the ATI Radeon HD 2400 series on my 2009 iMac. Snow Leopard's animations are always smooth, but on Lion they can stutter from time to time ... my ONLY complaint with Lion.

I only ask for applications that get hidden to be put to the end of the application switcher (CMD+TAB).

Apart from that, I'm quite happy with Lion. Well, the login window could do with being a bit less laggy, but I can live with it.

Yea. I hope they fix the fullscreen thing. If it's a "feature" it's one of the worst. Other than that I love Lion.

Please do 10.6.9 for iCloud

I'm sure I'm not only one, but please do a 10.6.9 so those of us who are remaining on SL for some time due to software requirements, can you please give us integration with iCloud. I like Lion but of the 5 Macs currently in my house 2 of them are still on SL where as the other 3 are Lion based, so it's not I don't want to or dont like lion it's just Rosetta based apps I have I still need.

Virtuallizing 10.6 via fusion is Ok I have it running now for testing just incase I run out of time with the mobileme to icloud transition hoping for 10.6.9

Sigh…

I had hoped for it to come out this week. Oh, well – hope it will be good once released.

I'm still waiting for Auto-Save/Versions to be made optional. I want it off and want to keep "Save As". I'm not upgrading to Lion yet...

I know what you mean. They slowly are, though.

Edit:

Also, only SIX builds in the last three weeks.

Ugh. I hope it was close to finished in December. :/

AirPlay the Mac to the AppleTV would be great. It would be nice to get rid of the 15ft HDMI cable and MiniDisplay Port adapter.

I don't even know what this means. How can 2 apps both take up a full screen at the same time? They would be "half" screen apps at best :)

I am missing something.

I hope it fixes the complete mess that Mission Control has become.

What the hell was Apple thinking of getting rid of Expose?? Grouping windows sucks if you multitask.

Apple needs to re-instate the old Exposé.

If you are working on virtual desktops, you want to see what windows are on a given desktop regardless of application. If they add that feature back in I'll upgrade my Snow Leopard iMac.

Be nice to see iMessenger and AirPlay integrated with the Mac.

Save a version and duplicate to the exact same things as save and save as. Get over yourself. Accept the name change and move on. Or get left behind.

Yeah either this build or the next one is GM. How do I know? Glad you didn't ask but pretending you did anyways. The install has a link to the support article and what they've fixed.

Please I hope they fix vnc aspect of it.

1. People with 2 monitors must have the main monitor listed as the left monitor or your clicks will be all screwed up. It always assumes its on the left.

2. Fix the wake on lan feature. Unless I'm on my network this will not work.

Your solution sounds like a royal pain the in ass for something that could easily get an on/off switch in system preferences.

Get over yourself.
