We toured OS X Lion back when the original developer preview was released, but the most recent Developer Preview 3 has introduced a few new changes. Here’s a look at the latest stuff you can expect when version 10.7 is released later this year.
This is just an overview of the latest updates to the developer preview of Mac OS X Lion. If you want a broader overview, check out our original screenshot and feature tour of 10.7.
iCal’s Reminders are Back
Other Small Updates
Mission Control, which is Apple’s mix of the Dashboard and Exposé, now has its own app and control panel in System Preferences. Mission Control also lets you add new desktops while you’re using it, rather than having to use that brand new control panel. Apple’s also added a new boot screen and changed a bunch of other minor UI elements, such as scroll bars that change their colour to adapt to their background.
Despite OS X Lion slated for this winter and the WWDC right around the corner, it’s still pretty buggy and a bit of a memory hog. Undoubtedly Lion will improve quite a bit before its release, but in its current state that release may not be quite as soon as some would hope.
