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.
