Apple at work on first external beta of OS X 10.7.5

updated 05:14 pm EDT, Mon June 18, 2012

Small group may start next in next few days

Apple is far enough into development of OS X 10.7.5 that it's on the verge of releasing the update's first external beta, AppleInsider sources say. A small group of Mac developers are expected to get a beta within the next few days. The general development community should get the software shortly afterward.

The actual content of v10.7.5 has yet to be leaked, although it should be a maintenance update rather than anything adding new features. Apple is preparing to launch OS X Mountain Lion, in which it is concentrating most of its development efforts. The v10.7.5 update will likely be the last major release of Lion, unless Apple discovers a flaw in the OS that requires fundamental changes.

    No hope..


    Honestly, I don't know why Apple even bothers. I have absolutely no hope that Apple will make any effort to address and fix and of the bugs miring Lion. They haven't so far.

    Oh stop. They have too fixed

    bugs since the release. AD binds work now, and that annoying "open whatever" checkbox on logouts, shutdowns and restarts is fixed. I'd like to get the login background resolved to a more usable state, but that was introduced in a more recent update. :P Using Text Edit for scripting is a problem, but I have alternatives...

    Otherwise, I'm not experiencing any significant bugs that mire my Lion experience. Doesn't mean they're not there, or don't need to be fixed. I'm just sayin'.

    Do what I do. When an update is released, i just utter the magical incantation, "no whammy - no whammy - no whammy - STOP." Then I click the update now button. ;)
