Apple issues third 10.7.3 build to internal testers

updated 12:50 am EST, Fri December 16, 2011

Available to developers soon

Apple late this evening released a third build, numbered 11D33, to internal testers with no known issues, making it likely that the public release is coming soon. 9to5 Mac reports. Developers will likely receive the build within a day. The release notes caution that testers will be unable to revert back to a previous system once installed, but the new build will install on top of either of the two previous builds (11D16 and 11D24).

Testers are asked to check the release against Address Book, iCal, Mail, Spotlight and Safari. The software was made available as a 1.2GB "combo" build and a 972MB "delta" build. Earlier this month, code found inside the first build of 10.7.3 hinted that Apple was planning to add support for a high-end AMD Radeon 7000 card, suggesting a new workstation-class model such as a revamped Mac Pro.

Release notes, once publicly available, will be here. Like most minor revisions, OS X 10.7.3 is expected to concentrate on bugfixes, performance and minor enhancements. [via 9to5Mac]

    please please

    fix the bug where version information isn't saved for documents on a file server, yet they are still auto-saved!!

    Better yet, let us disable auto-save altogether.

    "...with no known issues"?

    It's strange that there's no mention about that nasty permission bug that is plaguing Lion systems all over the place(just search for "Lion fetching" or "lion permissions problem" on Apple discussion to see how big it is), and it was NOT wired out on the last beta incarnation, as far as I know.

    Re: with no known issues

    Just because everyone knows about it doesn't mean apple does. There's been many a story of people calling apple or going into a genius bar with a problem everyone has heard about, and the apple person says "Nope, that's not in our system, can't say I know about it. Must be a fluke".

    And it isn't like Lion has no known issues. It is a known issue. They're probably listing the known issues they plan on fixing.

    It's obvious you're doing something wrong, for we know Apple would never implement a half-assed feature with such a glaring hole. That's something MS would do.
