Apple Seeds OS X 10.7.3 Build 11D50 to Developers

by

Apple has pushed out Build 11D50 of OS X 10.7.3 to registered developers. Apple continues to report no known issues in the seed notes, and asks developers to focus their testing on Address Book, iCal, Mail, Spotlight and Safari.


The previous builds had appeared to be close to a final release, but Apple is clearly still making some final tweaks to the update. The release description has indicated that the main improvements in OS X 10.7.3 will be support for several new languages and fixes for issues related to smart cards, directory services authentication, and Windows file sharing.

My Wish List
* Sleep/wake issues
* Wifi Issues
* Mail performance/stability updates
* Ability for Finder to be manually refreshed (stole that from other posts, I hadn't thought of that, but I get bloody annoyed some days, and refreshing would help.. Also I would like an Address bar, that's one of the actually useful windows features I miss.)
* General performance
* Graphics Drivers, OpenGL Update, etc.
* Bring back an option for a "Spaces" or to make mission control more like spaces
* reorganize the sidebar (I would like devices on top)


I know I'm a dreamer...

Finder needs a REFRESH BUTTON (Like F5 in Windows). I work with Network Folders that do not refresh when changes are made by the remote computer.

Overall its not a massive update is it. Languages? smart cards?

When will we get major GPU driver updates, a fix for the broken multi-display system, tweaking of animations and general speed improvements. 10.7.4 i hope.

I'm surprised that the last 0.5s of certain types of WAV audio files getting cut off during playback bug hasn't been fixed. I did some more investigation of this, and determined that:

* The sample rate of the WAV file does not seem to matter
* If the files are played with QuickTime Player X, issue occurs
* If the files are played with QuickTime Player 7, no issue occurs
* 16-bit WAVs are affected, but 8-bit WAVs are NOT affected
* WAV files shorter than 0.5s are reduced to either a click/pop or no sound at all


Should I report it to Apple? This bug has been present since the earliest Lion builds were issued to developers.
