Almost two weeks after the seeding of the initial OS X 10.7.4 beta, Apple has released a new build to developers. The new build is numbered 11E35 and, according to Apple, includes “no known issues.” Apple tells developers to focus on the App Store, graphics, QuickTime, Mail, and iCal. The new seed is available only to registered developers, and Apple has provided no public timeline for the 10.7.4 release. The release notes for the new build can be viewed after the break.

IMPORTANT: Engineering requires additional information for crashing bugs, kernel panics, and hanging issues.
Crashing Bugs: Crash logs are required for crashing bugs. Crash logs can be located in ~/Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports
Kernel Panics: Backtraces, which contain vital information for investigating kernel panics, are required for kernel panic issues. Backtraces can be saved to nvram on restart shutdown, then copied to the panic.log file on restart. The panic.log file can be found in /Library/Logs/PanicReporter.
Hanging Issues: When an application is hung, a Sample should be provided. This can be done using the Activity Monitor (/Applications/Utilities/). To generate a Sample using this utility, click on the hung application name, then from the View Menu select “Sample Process”.
Thank you for your support.
