New OS X 10.7.2 build and iCloud beta 7 released to developers
Another seed of OS X Lion 10.7.2 has been released to developers, this time with a build number of 11C37. The first 10.7.2 build was released just a few days after OS X Lion's public launch, and Apple still has not provided any developer seeds of 10.7.1.
Apple has also pushed out the seventh version of the iCloud developer beta. iCloud is due for public release in the fall, alongside iOS 5 and, likely, the 10.7.2 release of OS X Lion.
Meanwhile, based on historical Mac OS X releases, a 10.7.1 bugfix update for Lion should be released any day now. Between Mac OS X Jaguar and Snow Leopard the average time between the 10.x release and a 10.x.1 update has been just over 18 days; as of this writing it's been 23 days since Lion's launch. The longest gap between a 10.x release and the 10.x.1 update was 25 days, back in 2002 (though 10.1's gap was much longer, 10.2 was really the first version of Mac OS X that was in widespread use, so I haven't included it in this analysis).
Both 10.7.2 and the iCloud beta are available to download now from Apple's developer center.
