While we’re all impatiently waiting to see exactly which day in July Apple chooses to uncage OS X Lion, the company isn’t standing still, releasing an update to the Developer Preview 4 released to WWDC 2011 attendees on June 6 -- and it’s not the final version quite yet.
MacRumors is reporting that Apple pushed out an update to the Lion Developer Preview 4 on Wednesday night, clocking in at 656.6MB. Officially known as Lion Developer Preview Update (with a build number of 11A494a), the patch is only available to those who installed the latest and greatest Lion build released after the June 6 keynote at the Worldwide Developers Conference.
According to ItsAlltech.com, the changes found in this latest update include a slick new background for the login screen as well as Mission Control, a slightly redesigned “About This Mac” window, Mail and LaunchPad database updates and a few more subtle tweaks.
Sadly, the update appears to not be the final release version -- both websites note that the System Preferences Gestures panel doesn’t include instructional videos for the various multitouch functions, which are listed as “coming soon.”
Apple plans to unleash OS X Lion in the Mac App Store for $29.99 sometime in July.
