Apple Releases New OS X Lion Software Update for DP4


Apple seems to be putting the final touches on OS X Lion which is set to launch in July. They have pushed out a new software update for developers who are running the Developer Preview 4 that was released at WWDC.

There's no word on what has changed between versions. OS X Lion will be launching sometime in July for $29.99 via the Mac App Store.

Update: It's All Tech posts some of the changes found in the latest release. Perhaps most notable is that this build is not the final since there is still placeholders for some of the videos:

Still no Rosetta?


Let's let go of it. It was cool when it was actually necessary. Like 5 years ago.

Rosetta is done. Gone. You will never see it.

Let me just add this, I really love Lion, every bit of the OS has had something fiddled with, it's a joy to use and the experience is a lot better than Snow Leopard. Once you use Lion it's hard to go back to Snow Leopard. Just my opinion.

So if the cost of Lion is $29.99 US, and with a stronger AU $, how come we're paying $32???

I know it was mentioned on MR about it being -18% in Australian due to it being a download and therefore can go with the current exchange rates, but it seems Apple Australia is doing whatever it wants using an exchange rate from a year ago!

Rip off. :mad:


US $29.99 = AUD $28.41 at current exchange rates.

Add 10% GST and you're at $31.25.

So... you're pissing and moaning about 75 cents. Seriously.

EDIT: BTW, the US price does not include sales tax which varies between 4-10% for most US states. And let's not mention the average wage in the US compared to Australia, because that's just a massive can of worms...

It's impossible for Rosetta to be added back at this point. All the system files are intel-only.

Just do a 13-finger combined swipe and pinch motion and it should clear

I'm so mixed on this.

Part of me admires Windows backwards compatibility; you can still launch windows app from the mid-90s on Windows 7 and they mostly work fine. That's kinda neat.

The other part thinks it's a good idea to let go of the old so it doesn't become a huge pile of bloat.

We've had five years now to find new tools to replace our old PowerPC only apps. Move on, people. I stopped running Power PC apps almost as soon as the intel switch happened, simply because they always felt slower no matter how simple they were!
