Apple seeds new Mac OS X Lion preview with Reading List, Mission Control

post #1 of 97
Thread Starter 
Apple has seeded a new beta build, dubbed Developer Preview 3, of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, the next major update to the company's flagship operating system, enabling the Reading List feature and adding a dedicated app for the Mission Control window management feature.

The Cupertino, Calif., Mac maker seeded the 1.07GB Developer Preview 3 update to developers on Friday, according to people familiar with the matter. Apple first released Developer Preview 2 in March, eventually issuing several incremental updates (1, 2) to the beta in April.

In addition to the Mac OS X 10.7 build, Apple also issued Xcode 4.1 Developer Preview 5, a pre-release version of the Mac OS X development environment.

Changes in Developer Preview 3 for Mac OS X Lion include: "a new boot animation, new graphical elements in the Finder's toolbar, new desktop wallpapers and the Reading List, now enabled in Safari," MacStories reports. The Reading List feature, which allows a user to collect webpages and links to read later, was uncovered within earlier developer builds of Lion, but this is the first build where the feature is enabled.

It's All Tech also reports several changes including:
New Reminders menu in iCal
New next desktop button in Dashboard space
New options when right-clicking (this appears to be buggy at this time)
Compatibility to external displays has been improved( especially in Mission Control)
Developers also report that the update now includes a standalone application for the Mission Control feature. Previously, Mission Control could be activated via a multitouch gesture or keyboard shortcut.


Users can now add "desktops" via a plus button and close spaces from within Mission Control. Also, users will see thumbnail magnifications when hovering over desktop thumbnails.

Additionally, Dan Bennet reports that the login screen for Mac OS X Lion has changed to a much more polished metallic-finish page that displays a clock, wireless signal and battery indicator.



Apple will preview Mac OS X 10.7 Lion at its sold-out Worldwide Developers Conference from June 6 through June 10. The upgrade is slated for release this summer.

For more information on upcoming changes in Mac OS X Lion, see AppleInsider's in-depth series: Inside Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. Recent features include:

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion to support 450 Mbps WiFi on 2011 Thunderbolt MacBook Pro, iMacs

Inside Mac OS X 10.7 Lion: Safari adds iPad-like Downloads menu

Inside Mac OS X 10.7 Lion: Developer Preview 3 dials down animated tabs

Inside Mac OS X 10.7 Lion: iTunes screen saver controls music playback

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion to add Office file viewing, new text and signature annotation

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion: new multitouch gestures, Dock integration for Exposé, Launchpad, Mission Control

These updates sound like good "finishing touch" inclusions. Of course, I hope the stability is improved along with the odd occasional pausing and speeding up that QuickTime does whilst playing a video.


PS: Is this officially Preview 3 or the 3rd update to Preview 2. I ask because it’s coming through Softwarer Updater again, not through the Mac App Store via a redeem code.

There are conflicting reports, but it looks like it's labeled as an update to Preview 2 in Software Update while release notes call it Developer Preview 3.

From Software Updater: The Lion Developer Preview Update is recommended for all users running Mac OS X Lion Developer Preview 2.

From Apples dev site: Mac OS X Lion Developer Preview 3 is now available via Software Update for systems running developer preview 2 update 2.


It makes me think that Preview 3 started with the very first update to Preview 2 via the Software Updater, but that seems odd. I reinstalled Lion Preview 2 last week and had to install each of the 1GB updates via Software Updaters so Id expect that any version number would ether be applied to the whole thing or not at all.

Anyway, at least Xcode isnt as convoluted: Xcode 4.1 Developer Preview 5

I got an email from Apple today stressing the fact that I shouldn't use Software Updater to acquire this release as they wanted testers to check out how viable and "user friendly" the download from the App Store worked. Since I haven't received their download code yet, I haven't tried this out.

I don't know if this update method has been requested of all Appleseeders or not.

In the email, Apple refers to it as, "Lion Developer Preview Update." Not even a build number.

Any video around yet of the new boot animation?

Obviously a bug, but the entire "Spaces" tab is no longer found in System Preferences...



It also seems "Expose" is being completely replaced by "Mission Control," as the name of the former is disappearing.

Also, it seems "Automatically reorder Spaces" is new, though I'm unsure how it works.

I have not a clue what you are speaking of. The only way I now of to get the updates to Preview 2 are from Software Update. The only two options for redeem codes games for Preview 1 and Preview 2. Preview 2 can be installed independently of Preview 1, but the updates in Software Update will only show up after you have installed Preview 2 and will appear in consecutive order after each has been downloaded, installed and youve restarted.

Thanks.

That login looks like the back of a Mac. I think well be hearing some complaints about it. I do like they are incorporating smoother transitions between views. I wonder how a larger CoverFlow version of user names might work?

I assume those clock images are pulling from favicon. If they are going to be that big were going to need a larger favicon from which to pull. Apple may have already created a solution with their iPhone WebClip icon options. Those are 57x57 PNGs.

That's not a bug. Like stated in the article, you can now add/subtract spaces within Mission Control (I guess that explains the last option in the system prefs window).

Hmm... Seems like it would be a non-discoverable feature for new users, though. Especially since the System Preferences window still calls it "Expose & SPACES." They'll probably rename that in DP4.

Probably, but the funny thing is that it takes Apple multiple tries to get something like this fixed, when people like us, not even employed by Apple, could practically notice these things with a blindfold on. Apple's a great incorporation, don't get me wrong, but little things like this make me question, "Are people really that stupid? Really?". Haha, it's not as big of a deal as I'm making it out to be, but still, seems kind of silly to me.

edit: I then thought after posting this, probably not, hence the last option. They could rename the preference panel to "Mission Control" though. Stupid me, or should I say, stupid person for suggesting the renaming. Haha, joking.

I think it's just that there are bigger issues than the naming of things. Something that will happen later when bigger problems are solved.

So the most obvious bugs and/or simplest bugs to fix are the last to be fixed? That makes plenty of sense.

Yes and no.
The bugs that are causing the least trouble, obvious or not, are always going to be the last to have resources dedicated to them. That's how it is in the software development world, go for the biggies, then go back and get the rest, and we all know that with an OS, as complicated as it is, there are a LOT of bugs (unseen or not) during the development phase.

The difficulty could lie elsewhere. Note that the Exposé & Spaces window still mentions Spaces three times in the pane. Perhaps its better to rename is Exposé & Mission Control with a section that deals with the spaces attributes of Mission Control, but that is just one option and probably not something that should be changed with every single update to this Beta until they get it right. A better option might be to just leave it until a proper think tank can figure out the best option moving forward. Id wager that isnt the most pressing issue so they might be holding off on figuring out exactly how the Panel will be sorted and named until they get all the Mission Control features in place. At least.. thats what Id do.

Yes I meant the postscript. Fair point about clear communication. I just meant to say that it doesn't really matter whether this is Preview 3 or Preview 9.3 as long as everyone's on the same page

That’s the build I’m running with the two updates from Software Update. The original Lion Preview 2 build is 11A419, which also what’s currently listed on Apple’s developer site, After the first update via Software Update it became build 11A430e.

But that begs the question why isn’t the third update for Preview 2 being listed in your Software Update? Are you a paid dev or do you DL it from an alternative source?

That's odd, I ran Software Update and it showed up fine for me:



That's the most recent build. Try running Software Update again, or see if you can download it directly from ADC.

Of course it does...

Consider a pending OS release.

If there is a bug that causes the system to crash frequently, one that no one knows how exactly it is triggered

would you rather have your team of programmers work on THAT, or fix the obvious/simplest bugs like a wrong icon in a toolbar or a misplaced label?



You can always do the small/obvious stuff in a rush later, but if the big stuff is not out the way before the launch day you are screwed.
post #29 of 97
Those that want to save their updates can find them in /Library/Updates/*/LionSWUpdate.pkg. Just make sure you 1) copy it after it’s DLed but before you click to restart and install, and 2) name it accordingly because all these updates are named the same.

Alternative source for the first preview. Perhaps that's it.\

You know, if Spaces is now being handled by Mission Control, how does one now get an application to be limited to just one Space? Before, you had a Spaces window in System Preferences and you dragged the apps you wanted onto the specific space. I can't figure out how to do that now via Mission Control.

OK seriously can somebody tell me why I should upgrade to Lion? All this interface stuff is getting quite kitschy. As a long-time Mac user, I'm not seeing the value here. For new users, well, I don't know if it will make things any easier or more iOS-like. Clearly Steve is not personally overseeing this project.

Looking at the features so far, I will probably wait and switch to Lion when the bugs in Lion have decreased below the bugs in Snow Leopard. For my own requirements, Snow Leopard (and MobileMe) with less bugs would be better than Lion.

When it comes to operating system upgrades from Apple, I am jaded, skeptical, and cynical. All for good reason.

The reason is this: there has long been one MAJOR problem with Apples OS, WHICH THEY HAVE STEADFASTLY IGNORED, meanwhile devoting a lot of effort to a lot of stuff that is frivolous in comparison.

The One True Problem with Apples OS: SCREEN TEXT THAT IS NOT UNDER THE IMMEDIATE CONTROL OF SOME PIECE OF APPLICATION SOFTWARE IS RENDERED IN SUCH A WAY THAT THE PHYSICAL SIZE OF THE TEXT ON THE SCREEN DEPENDS ON THE PHYSICAL PIXEL DENSITY OF THE DISPLAY!!!!!


This situation is LUDICROUS. It is ludicrous that Apple has ignored this for as long as they have. It is LUDICROUS that whereas they should have corrected this horrific shortcoming a long, long time ago, they have persisted in ignoring it and have instead directed their efforts at the likes of the boot animation.


For every Apple-apologist out there who will be eager to spring to Apples defense and try to find some way to refute what I am saying, please take note of the following more detailed explanation of the problem. You are no doubt aware that the physical pixel density of the screen varies from one display device to the next. You have probably heard, for example, of retina display. Now, there are good reasons why the same sort of high-resolution should be offered in the regular computers. But unless and until Apple corrects this shortcoming in the regular OS, this cannot be done. The reason is simple. Excepting the text where the font size used at the display is controlled by some piece of application software, all the rest of it will shrink physically in size. The quantity of pixels used will not change, and because that same, fixed quantity of pixels will take up less physical real estate on the screen, it will shrink. The extent of the shrinkage is the same as the extent in the increase in the physical pixel density. This will apply to the menu bar and everything else that you see across the top of the screen, and to the drop-down menus, and to all of the windows that you open and that are provided by the OS itself, such as the system preferences window. All of this is rigidly fixed to a fixed quantity of screen pixels, and when the screen pixel density increases, all of this shrinks in size. Like the Incredible Shrinking Man from that old science fiction movie, eventually it all becomes so small that it simply vanishes.

Now that you understand the problem and you understand that it is real, surely you as well find it perplexing that Apple has not long ago fixed this. Surely. It is manifestly a problem, and it is manifestly something that Apple should have fixed a long, long time ago.

There is another related problem. If you happen not to like what Apple calls font smoothing, which would more appropriately be called font smudging, then you will want to disable it. If you go into the settings for Appearance, there seems to be the ability to disable font smudging. It would appear that if you simply deselect the box that is labelled Use LCD font smoothing when available, that this would disable font smudging altogether. But it doesnt. There is even a logical inconsistency between that selection and the selection immediately below, where you select a font size associated with Turn off text smoothing for font sizes ___ and smaller. There are multiple problems with this. First, you cannot select a font size any larger than 12. Why not? Who decided to put this arbitrary limitation here? Software engineers who do not have any better sense than to put arbitrary limitations of this sort into software have no business being allowed near a compiler. Second, these settings only seem to have any effect at all for applications that cooperatively, voluntarily conform to these settings. It is apparently the case that applications can ignore these settings, and it is apparently the case that text generated from within the OS, i.e., the text that shrinks physically when the physical pixel density is great, simply ignores these settings. Or is the text that you see, in the very same window where you make these selections, larger than font size 12 and therefore immune to the setting, due to the arbitrary restriction, notwithstanding that you have deselected the box? IT MAKES NO SENSE.

I WISH THAT EVERYONE WOULD STOP ALL THIS SILLY BABBLE ABOUT THE BOOT ANIMATION AND SO FORTH AND START TALKING INSTEAD ABOUT THESE VERY REAL SHORTCOMINGS THAT APPLE NEEDS TO ADDRESS. AS LONG AS THE CUSTOMERS ARE EVIDENTLY TOO IGNORANT TO REALIZE THAT THIS IS A PROBLEM, APPLE WILL LIKELY CONTINUE TO IGNORE THIS INDEFINITELY. THE LAST MAJOR REVISION TO THE OS WAS AT THE VERY BEST A JOKE, AND THE SAME WILL LIKELY BE TRUE OF THIS ONE, AND THE NEXT ONE, AND THE ONE AFTER THAT, UNTIL SUCH TIME AS THE PAYING CUSTOMERS STOP ALL THIS BABBLE ABOUT BOOT ANIMATION AND SO FORTH AND START TALKING INSTEAD ABOUT THIS REAL, BONA FIDE PROBLEM!

Thank you. At least someone is willing to point out what's happening with Lion rather than just gushing over a new Login screen.

Just create a Space and then drag the application to it from Mission Control.

After testing it out I think more users will use multiple desktops because it is presented to them more directly. Just placing an app in fullscreen mode creates a space for that item.

The transitions for Mission Control and switching desktops is smoother but there are couple things Id like to see. For instance, the ability to rearrange their location with Mission Control and to rename the desktops to something more personal and useful.
