Apple has seeded Mac OS X 10.7.3 build 11D33 to testers (not developers yet). Apple asks these testers (full release notes after the break) to focus on the Mac OS X Address Book application, iCal, Mail, Spotlight, and Safari. Apple says there are no known issues with this build. The 11d33 build will likely make its way to registered Mac developers soon.
Apple says this build can install as a delta update to the previous beta builds labeled 11D16 and 11D24. Apple should release 10.7.3 to the public fairly soon as sources say Apple is nearly done with work on Mac OS X 10.7.3 save for any last minute hiccups in the final rounds of testing. Like most point upgrades to major OS X versions, 10.7.3 focuses on bug fixes, performance, and minor enhancements.
