Apple today has released the next generation OS X Mountain Lion to registered developers bringing over 100 new features such as Messages, Notes, Reminders, GameCenter, NotificationCenter, Twitter integration, and AirPlay Mirroring. The first developer preview of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion can only be downloaded by Mac Developer Program members. However, a public launch is scheduled for late this summer through the Mac App Store.

 

The developer preview of Mac OS X Mountain Lion features the all new Messages app replacing conventional iChat. The new message app lets you send unlimited messages, videos, and high resolution photos directly from your Mac to another Mac or iOS device like iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Messages will continue to support AIM, Jabber, Yahoo! Messenger and Google Talk, however.

 

In the developer preview of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, Apple has introduced Gatekeeper, a revolutionary security feature that gives you complete control over what apps are installed on your Mac or from which sources apps may be installed – keeping you safe from malicious software attack. It will make your Mac safer than ever.

OS X Mountain Lion is tightly integrated with iCloud which automatically configure Mail, FaceTime, and Find My Mac, and syncs the documents across all Apple devices, so documents are always up to date. Mountain lion build also introduces ‘AirPlay Mirroring’, allowing you to wirelessly send a 720p video stream from your Mac to an HDTV using Apple TV.

Finally, Apple brings substantial improvements for many popular Chinese services. Baidu, the leading Chinese search provider, is a built-in option in Safari. Integration with Chinese email and video hosting sites (Youku and Tudou) as well as the Sina weibo microblogging service is also included.

Guys just read GateKeeper section.

"Now you can choose from three security options. You can download and run applications from anywhere, just as in OS X Lion. To be even safer, download and run apps from the Mac App Store and apps with a Developer ID. Or download and run only apps from the Mac App Store — the safest setting of all."

It seems we might need to use jailbroke apps in the future for os x

non of the lion installation methods work right now

 

Standard Lion install method works (restore BaseSystem, copy Packages and mach_kernel), but if you are using Chameleon you'll need an earlier version (2.0 r752 works), recent versions result in instant reboot.

 

Clover also boots Mountain Lion flawlessly

Hi,

 

Ya.. i read that one.

 

My home is that we can load up some of the GMA kexts from Lion and get it back in business.. if not.. it would mean the end of the line for all Dell Latitude D models (well.. and alot others)

 

I got it booting on my Dell Latitude D430 now, but dosent load GUI.. about to start experiment with kexts now..

Tested, but always freezes with just the number "6" and a blinking underscore.
