OS X Lion Golden Master Seeded to Developers
Apple appears almost ready to released OS X Lion to the general public. A Golden Master (GM) release of OS X Lion was seeded to developers this afternoon, with a build number of 11A511, according to 9to5Mac.
A GM release is typically the final build before a piece of software ships to consumers. If no major bugs are found, Lion should be ready for customers. Rumors have suggested that Apple has been waiting for OS X Lion to reach its final state before launching new MacBook Airs. The new MacBook Airs are also expected in July.
Update: Apple has also seeded a GM version of the OS X Lion Server components, Xcode 4.1 Developer Preview 7, and iCloud for OS X Lion Beta 3. Finally, Apple has pushed out a Java for Mac OS X 10.7 release via Software Update.
