Lion Preview: Developer Preview 4 (build 11A480b) review

Mac OS X Lion Developer Preview 4, build 11A480b is ready to download from the Apple Developer Center, and some reported they had it available via Software Update but that wasn't the case for me.

Installation looks a little bit different (better) and i guess its the same installer which gonna be used in the final version.



"About this Mac" got another face lift and is more compact now.

Launchpad got a new icon and seems way more stable then in the previous builds.

Photo Booth supports full screen and a lot of new effects available (soon more).
Versions is more stable (no more 99% cpu).

The system preference Touchpad/Mouse panes got reworked.


Lion is more polished now and seems ready for gold master.

It's all starting to look better and better. Can't wait for its release. This was different when they first announced it, so I think they're doing a good job. :3

Question...

Is this Developers Preview stable enough that it can be used by standard users?

I have a copy and would love to install it over Snow Leopard if I knew it was stable enough.
