Apple posts new Mac OS X Lion, Xcode 4.1 developer previews

Build said to slash number of bugs

Apple has posted its second developer previews for Mac OS X Lion and Xcode 4.1, which are both available for registered developers. Despite rumors that the latest release, build number 11A419, is a Gold Master candidate, an AppleInsider report notes that the OS still contains approximately a dozen known issues that must be resolved before the software arrives on the market.

The company released its first developer preview late in February, giving participants a chance to check out some of the new features. Lion brings a new Launchpad app interface, which mimics the iOS home screen, along with other new features such as Mission Control, AirDrop, FileVault and a new fullscreen mode.

Apple has yet to commit to a time-frame for launching the final version, though the company's WWDC event is scheduled to begin June 6.

    Question for those installing build 11A419, any sign that Rosetta made it back?

    Does this?

    Does this build support the new MacBook Pros?
