“Less than three months after the launch of Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard, evidence has surfaced that Apple is already working on the next version of OS X, presumably to be designated Mac OS X 10.7,” Eric Slivka reports for MacRumors.
“The information comes from an entry posted earlier today in a database of changes to the open source ‘launchd’ framework, which oversees booting of Mac OS X and administers processes running on the system,” Slivka reports. “Apple’s build numbering scheme [indicates] that, while still early in the development process, Apple has been working on builds of the next major operating system revision for at least the last month or two.”
Slivka reports, “Of course, news that Apple appears to be working on Mac OS X 10.7 is certainly not surprising given the long development time required to refine and polish Apple’s major operating system releases. While 10.6 incorporated many “under the hood” changes, however, some have speculated that we may see more radical end-user changes in 10.7.”
