|About the Book|
Mac OS X Lion (version 10.7) is the eighth major release of Mac OS X, Apples desktop and server operating system for Macintosh computers. Lion is released in July 2011. Apples homepage and Mac OS X webpages refer to it as OS X Lion, without the Mac, although Apples press release for Lions July release uses both Mac OS X Lion and OS X Lion. A preview of Lion was publicly unveiled at Apples Back to the Mac event on October 20, 2010. It will bring many developments made in Apples iOS, such as an easily-navigable display of installed applications, to the Mac, and will include support for the Mac App Store, as introduced in Mac OS X Snow Leopard version 10.6.6. On February 24, 2011, the first developers preview of Lion (11A390) was released to subscribers of Apples developers program. Other developer previews were subsequently released, with Lion Preview 4 (11A480b) being released at WWDC 2011.
