Apple Seeds New Lion Beta: Few Minor UI Tweaks, Not Much Else (So Far)

Apple Seeds New Lion Beta: Few Minor UI Tweaks, Not Much Else (So Far)

Apple has released an update to its Mac OS X 10.7 Lion beta. The 1.24 GB update is third build of the new operating system, which is expected to be shown off at WWDC in June and released to the public in the summer or fall.

The update is available to registered Mac developers running Lion Developer Preview 2. It can be downloaded through Software Update. The release contains no release notes and appears to contain only minor UI tweaks, according to tweets crossing the wire. It’s unlikely to be a big update. That will come with Developer Preview 3.

    You don’t have to be registered user. If you get your Lion copy from torrent sites – you still can update :) :)

    No more useless Downloads window in Safari. It’s just a beautiful popup from a button in the toolbar.

    I agree just pay 99 dollars!

  • Arron Hunt

    Pay $99 when the OS itself is cheaper then that? No thanks.

    Besides…it’s a developer build. If he were talking about torrenting the legitimate OS then yes, let your flaming continue. But really children it’s a Preview!
