Apple has recently released its third build of Mac OS X v10.6.8 to developers, asking them to focus on testing graphics drivers, VPN, QuickTime, networking, AirPort, and, most importantly, the Mac App Store. The release notes for the newest build state it aims to “enhance the Mac App Store to get your Mac ready to upgrade to Mac OS X Lion,” potentially meaning that Apple is planning to deliver Mac OS X Lion through the Mac App Store as well as through physical copies.
Should v10.6.8 be released to the public before the start of WWDC on June 6th, Mac OS X Lion could possibly be on its way sooner than expected. For now, though, nothing is confirmed, and we’ll have to wait to see when Apple rolls out the new Snow Leopard update before anything else.
