Apple seeds new OS X 10.7.2, iCloud, iPhoto 9.2 betas

iCloud makes way toward fall launch

Apple has released new developer seeds for three upcoming Mac updates. The first is OS X 10.7.2, now in build 11C43. The iCloud Lion client has now been advanced to beta 9, while iPhoto 9.2 is in its third beta. Apple warns that installing the latter will replace any existing installation of iPhoto, and that beta 3 will not open libraries created by beta 1. The only way to revert iPhoto to an earlier version is to do a clean install of OS X and then install iPhoto again separately.

When the OS X and iPhoto updates might be finished is uncertain, but Apple has a more firm deadline for iCloud. Support for the platform is a key marketing point of iOS 5, which is at least due sometime this fall, and more likely by mid-October if not earlier. Apple is expected to launch a new iPhone by then; iOS 5 could in theory appear in September if Apple releases a new iPod touch before a new iPhone.
