Apple Rolls iCloud Beta into New OS X 10.7.2 Build 11C55

11c55
Apple today seeded a new version of OS X 10.7.2, termed Build 11C55, to developers. Notably, the build appears to fully incorporate iCloud functionality for the first time. The iCloud components had previously been included as a separate download to be installed on top of earlier OS X 10.7.2 builds.

OS X Lion Software Update 10.7.2 is an update to OS X Lion 10.7 and includes support for iCloud beta. Please refer to the seed note for more details and installation instructions.

The new build comes nine days after the previous seed of OS X 10.7.2 Build 11C48 with the associated iCloud beta 10.

Apple continues to list no known issues with the latest build, and asks developers to focus their testing on AddressBook, GraphicsDrivers, iCal, iChat, iCloud, Mac App Store, Mail, MobileMe, Safari, Spotlight, and Time Machine.

Just this past Friday, Apple seeded new developer builds of iTunes 10.5 and iWork for iOS as part of continued testing for iCloud compatibility. The company has also been seeding builds of iPhoto 9.2 to support the Photo Stream component of iCloud, but has not seeded a new iPhoto build since August 26th.

Apple is of course also continuing to seed iOS developers with builds of iOS 5 leading up to the public launch of the next-generation operating system for Apple's mobile devices. The current developer seed is iOS 5 beta 7, released on August 31st.

Those are areas devs should focus on and are not a list of bug fixes.

So I'm guessing the 8th, then? Last years was on a Wednesday and Apple are creatures of habit...

The 8th was three days ago, so probably not a good guess...

All 10.x.x updates include bug fixes. The only reason the first release of 10.7.2 didn't include listed bug fixes was because 10.7.1 hadn't been released yet.

According to the seed note, 10.7.2 includes fixes in the following areas:

- AddressBook
- GraphicsDrivers
- iCal
- iChat
- iCloud
- Mac App Store
- Mail
- MobileMe
- Safari
- Spotlight
- Time Machine
It's just things they're supposed to be working on. They may not actually change much of anything in most of those products, although I hope they at least deal with the bugs.

EDIT: Also, Intel... For christ sake, learn to write drivers. The Intel HD 3k is just about the only GPU on the market not capable of OpenGL 4.0. It doesn't even seem to be capable of 3.2 on Lion. This is completely unacceptable. There is even a bug that prevents you from switching to the Core profile. It's compatibility or nothing on an HD 3k. They finally have decent hardware in their GPUs that at least make them competitive, but not the drivers to back them up.
