Apple As widely anticipated, Apple's new major OSX release is available this morning, download-only, for $29.99 USD in the Mac App Store. There's a quick copy and paste job of the feature list after the jump. Also as expected, there's a new, Sandy Bridge-based Macbook Air. Update: A reader pointed out John Siracusa's Lion review at Ars.

Doesn't auto save have to be enabled in the application? I don't think MS word won't suddenly start working with it. It might be something pretty cool 3-5 years from now when most things support it.

As with most new apis, it is strictly Opt In. iWork 09 got updates to support it though...

Yeah, now some of the apps you use you wont have to press the save button, and others you will. Does that really decrease the odds of data loss, or increase it? I guess there really isn't any other way to transition to an always autosave world. Ah well.


Also, Iwork is not for me. I'm not sure who it is for, but with google docs, MS office, or libre/open office I don't really understand its purpose/place. I mean I paid money for it, and I'd rather use a free one.

If you use NSDocument then you automatically get it - the problem is that Apple didn't use NSDocument for iWork's applications.
