Apple has released a the fourth beta of Mac OS X Lion 10.7.2 to developers – build 11C48 – as well as the tenth iCloud Beta for Mac.
Scheduled to go live this fall alongside or even ahead of iCloud, Mac OS X 10.7.2 Lion is responsible with installing the necessary software for compatibility with Apple’s suite of Internet services.
“OS X Lion Software Update 10.7.2 is an update to OS X Lion 10.7,” Apple explains to developers. Please refer to the seed note for more details and installation instructions. (Mac Developer Program membership required),” reads the note accompanying 10.7.2 build 11C48.
According to those who’ve seen the seed notes, Mac OS X 10.7.2 build 11C48 asks developers to focus their testing skills on AirPort, AppKit, GraphicsDrivers, iCal, iChat, the Mac App Store, Spotlight and Time Machine.
The set of focus areas seems to be identical to the one found in last week’s seed. Unlike last week though, there is no new beta of iPhoto this time around.
No known issues have been signaled so far, though “it is not advisable to use this software on a production system with information on it that you depend on for your business,” Apple says.
The company headquartered at 1 Infinite Loop, Cupertino, California instructs those who've installed a previous seed of Mac OS X 10.7.2 to run the enclosed Reversioner.pkg, and not restart. Instead, they must install the 10.7.2 update immediately thereafter.
As usual, developers will not be able to go back to their previous configuration after updating to the latest 10.7.2 build and they must also be prepared to erase the drive (partition) they with to install the new Mac OS on.
Beta testers are encouraged to submit any bugs they may find in OS X 10.7.2 11C48 using the online Bug Reporter.
The build is being provided for testing and development purposes, therefore devs will have to work up bug titles that contain references to “10.7.2 11C48”.
