Apple Seeds OS X 10.7.3 Build 11D24 to Developers

Two and a half weeks after the initial developer seed of OS X 10.7.3, Apple has pushed out a new 11D24 build of the next maintenance update for OS X Lion to developers.

11d24
For the new build, Apple has added Spotlight and Safari to the list of areas upon which developers are asked to focus their attention. Developers are asked to continue looking at iCloud Document Storage, Address Book, iCal, and Mail as had been documented in the earlier seed. No known issues with the current build have been documented by Apple.

A targeted public release timeframe for OS X 10.7.3 is currently unknown. The release will come as a follow-up to OS X 10.7.2, which appeared in mid-October to support iCloud.

I agree Launchpad is a ridiculous joke

Use of this joke is not mandatory and it's a great way to launch apps for novice and older people.

Lion is the worse Mac OS I have seen since... well since I switched to Mac in 2002.

I actually had to reboot the other day because some system process was taking up 100% CPU.

I bought Sparrow because Mail crashes constantly.

Launchpad makes no sense, and they completely broke Expose

You should probably revert back to Mac OS X 10.0 just to be certain of that claim

After using Lion everyday since the beta, I know cannot live without it.

I haven't had any problems with it, obviously others have, but the bugs are being fixed,

But it has been perfect for me, and I cannot live without Mission Control, Full Screen Apps, LaunchPad, and many other features, that I was skeptical of at launch

Ever got a sneaking suspicion that the issue affecting you isn't Lion but something else in your setup? These boards don't seem to have a lot of others with the same issue. Just saying.

Lion issues:

* On log out/shut down/restart, it always asks Reopen windows when logging back in.
I always uncheck it. I want it to STAY unchecked.

* When I exit programs, I'm not asked to save. Re-opening the program also re-opens what I had open. I don't like this. Quitting a program should ask me if I wish to save. Many times I do not want the contents of a file, but the system still auto-saves it.

* Server Admin Tools are just all kinds of busted/messed up. They didn't work in 10.7 beta. They didn't work in 10.7.1. They don't work in 10.7.2. Workgroup Manager always hangs and gives a connection error. It doesn't work on any 10.7 system I use.

* Design choice, but Mac OS X Server 10.7 is missing tons of what we used with 10.5 & 10.6. NFS management, Open Directory, etc.

There aren't a lot of things that bother me, but the things that do are major, MAJOR things. We use Macs professionally, and we've put off all 10.7 upgrades. The loss of Server Admin Tools (and no perceivable benefits) means we will be sticking with 10.6 on a lot of systems.

As a developer, I've been using Lion since the first DP and I love it.

I've had less system hangs with it in comparison to both Leopard and Snow leopard. I've been using the new mail, and it is by far better than the previous versions; especially with screen utilization.
Launchpad makes perfect sense; as a heavy Alfred/Quicksilver user I have become accustomed to one/two button presses to get to where I need to go. With Launchpad, I squeeze my trackpad together with five fingers and it shows up--just like on the iPad.
Mission control has its flaws, but it's still really great.

Lion is the best OS X yet.
