Apple Seeds OS X 10.7.3 Build 11D36 to Developers

Squeezing in one last release before Christmas, Apple today seeded developers with an updated version of OS X 10.7.3. The new version, known as Build 11D36, comes with no documented known issues and is said to include iCloud Document Storage, Address Book, iCal, Mail, Spotlight and Safari as focus areas for developer testing.

11d36
The delta version of the new build for updating from OS X 10.7.2 weighs in at 986 MB, while a combo version good for updating from any previous version of OS X Lion weighs in at 1.2 GB.

OS X 10.7.3 will be Apple's next free maintenance update for OS X Lion users. The current version, OS X 10.7.2, was released in mid-October and brought support for Apple's new iCloud services.

Has it sunk in yet for Apple that Mission Control's lack of Expose makes it a complete failure, or are they not going to address the issue at all?

A simple option in system preferences to ungroup windows would solve the problem.

Also, give us the ability to
-completely disable (and effectively remove) Launchpad.
-completely disable spaces (the grey border in mission control is redundant).
-have an option to turn off the macbook's main screen when hooked up to an external LCD. I have to wake from sleep in order to do this.

There are programs for tabs, but you probably knew that already.

I'm just curious, why do you want to completely disable launchpad?

The 20 most frequently applications I use are in my dock. The rest are in the applications folder that are accessed via spotlight, a shortcut via custom applications folder in the dock, or manually finding it via finder. I don't need another icon in my dock. Removing it from the dock doesnt disable it either (as has been proven when installing an application via app store, launchpad then activates).

How old are you? Six?

1. Personal preference.
2. Personal preference.
3. Still personal preference.
4. No, it's not. 64 bit environment is using a bit more memory. i'm seeing same memroy consumption in Snow Leopard (64 bit) and Lion with difference being no more than ~10%.
5. Most idiotic preference based on fantasies that have no ground in real life. I have almost 4 TB iTunes library and iTunes runs just fine on i5 iMac using up to 200 MB of RAM.
6. I'm sure it improved for many.
7. Last time i checked when you plug external monitor you can just close laptop lid and work on the external monitor.
8. If it's implemented the right way. Still personal preference.

What does my age have anything to do with the way I prefer to work on my computer?

Are you familiar with the term preferences at all? Why do you think you even have a special place in OS X for.... (get ready, this may shock you) SYSTEM PREFERENCES?

Are you under the impression everyone should have their computer set up exactly the way you do, or exactly the way everyone else does per Apple's orders?

What is the purpose of your computer? Mine generates my income, both at work and at home. It is my tool for my career and I would like to use it according to MY needs, NOT YOURS.

Most of the things I listed can be simply implemented by Apple by simply adding a check box in SYSTEM PREFERENCES. You wouldnt even be affected with the way your own mac would be set up, so why do you come off so ignorant and arrogant.

Seriously, look into system preferences and why it exists. :rolleyes:

Are you aware that you can double-tap (not click) icons in the dock to see application windows Expose style? I only found this out the other day and it was something of a revelation to me. Especially useful for Photoshop when you have a gazillian image windows open.

Theres no way to show photoshop, illustrator and indesign windows all at once. I keep having to repeat myself on this in *EVERY* thread on macrumors when I make this complaint about the lack of Expose. I have doubts that people are even aware of Expose's functionality in OS X 10.6.

I'm happy with how it works. Thank you.

That's nice. I'm happy you're happy.

When are people like you going to figure out that the rest of us are simply waiting for Apple to add an OPTION to change or disable some of the stupidities in Lion?

I'm so sick and tired of this attitude that Lion isn't broken and that Apple shouldn't change anything because it works for you.

News flash, you're not the only person on the planet.

Those of us who dislike Lion don't want to FORCE something upon you. We're not trying to MAKE YOU accept what we believe to be the "correct" way of doing things. We simply want Apple to add an option, so that for those things that don't jive well with us- we can opt to disable or revert the behaviour back to something that does jive well with us. That's all we want. A choice. A simple choice. We had them before but now we don't.

So, frankly, the next person to say "Well 10.7 works great for me! It doesn't need fixing!" needs to be lynched for not understanding this point. Lion is not broken if it does what you want out of the box. If it doesn't, you're **** out of luck. And that is the problem with Lion- it offers absolutely NO choice to change anything (and terminal hacks are terminal hacks- Cocoa isn't exactly hard to code up a checkbox for).

So for those of you who say that Lion is great and you have no issues with it and that Apple doesn't need to change anything- just keep this in mind- whenever you DO need to change something, are you really comfortable confiding in an operating system that offers you NO choices for even the most basic of things?

Will they ever fix that issue that makes it impossible to have two windows in full screen mode on two different monitors?
