Mac OS X 10.7 Appearing in Web Logs, Dev Release at WWDC?
As we reported earlier, it's no surprise that Apple is actively working on Mac OS X 10.7. Bug reports from the early builds were spotted in November and as early as December Mac OS X 10.7 signatures appeared in web logs from Apple-owned IP addresses. More spottings have been since reported, and we've found Mac OS X 10.7 signatures in our own web logs with increasing frequency since October.

Apple has said nothing of the next major version of Mac OS X, though John Gruber had said he had heard that Mac OS X 10.7 would be ready for developer release by WWDC this June.
Rumored features that never made it into Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard such as the Marble interface revamp may make their way into 10.7.
