Apple takes Mac OS X 10.7.3 live

Apple on Wednesday afternoon posted Mac OS X 10.7.3 (release notes). The Lion upgrade adds several languages, including Catalan for Spaniards as well as Croatian, Greek, Hebrew, Romanian, Slovak, Thai, and Ukrainian. RAW photo compatibility has expanded to several new cameras, including the Nikon J1 and V1, Olympus' current PEN cameras, and current Sony Alpha and NEX cameras, such as the NEX-5N.

Bug fixes improve graphics performances on wake for some iMacs with AMD graphics, a Wi-Fi connection issue on wake, and using a smart card to log into the OS. Compatibility with the Windows world is also a focus, with fixes for Windows file sharing, printing Word files with markup, and authenticating to a Samba DFS share. A problem has been fixed that stopped Safari from opening if the computer hadn't connected to its wireless network.

Directory Services have been boosted with improved binding to certain kinds of Active Directory systems, better reliability and login support, and better compatibility with certain kinds of schemas and passwords.

Safari 5.1.3 is already included with the release. Users can check Software Update on each system or download the updater to push the update out to each system they own.

    First machine

    Had an issue with download. Got to 3.5MB and stalled. Error was "Could not save..." Cancelled and tried 2 more times (after deleting the contents of /Library/Updates/) with the same message. Repaired permissions, repaired volume, started the download again and got "Could not communicate with the update server..." but I clicked continue (or retry, or whatever) and the download continued to completion, then installed.
    Probably an issue on my end.

    Second machine downloaded and installed fine.

    How about

    How about fixing SMBX? Some network-related things used to work that now don't with Lion. We can't fix it on our end...Apple has to fix it. And it's causing real problems here on campus.
