OS X Lion

Category : Technology/LionFinal.txt

Apple has released OS X Lion.

And I'm glad to say, I'm now also able to make these new OS X Lion versions of all my apps - MailServe, DNS Enabler, DNS Agent and WebMon, etc. - available here, right on time. There were times, during Lion's gestation, when I felt that my stuff were all breaking apart so much that I couldn't put them back together again, Apple being in the habit of changing its innards each time they upgrade their OS.

Even now, I fear things might still break with the shipping version of Lion. I've done the testing against the developers' Golden Master relaese of Lion. The shipping versin from the App Store appears to have the same build number. But once, when Apple released Leopard, the final shipping version was different from the GM release and my apps broke and I had to pull them from my site. That taught me never to take things for granted.

Am also really glad that OS X Lion is now upon us. I haven't slept much the last two days. I hope that the changes Apple has been making to the system's innards can now stabilise so that I can finally start to build on top of it.
