Apple has started seeding OS X Lion 10.7.3 build 11D50 to developers for testing. Like the past few betas, there are “no known issues”, so the release is expected to be stable enough to be pushed out to the public soon. Areas of focus include iCloud Document Storage, Address Book, iCal, Mail, Spotlight, and Safari. If you’re a developer, head over to the Mac Dev center and let us know if you find anything interesting!
