If you are an Apple fan, you have undoubtedly heard at this point that the focus of WWDC this year will supposedly not be hardware but the OS X Lion operating system for Macs and iOS for the iPhone and iPad. Apparently, the first version of Lion that was offered up for devs to check out had a lot of bugs in it. Apple is also said to consider this new build to be a GM1 revision.

That first offering stayed just the way it was for a month and now TechCrunch reports that Apple has put a new updated version of the OS up for devs to download and try again via the Mac App Store. Normal geeks can't get the OS, it's only for developers.

The original version of Lion that was offered was 11A390 and the new version that is up as of now is 11A419 so in that month time there have been many revisions. TechCrunch reckons this isn't the golden master copy that will be produced since we are so far out form WWDC and that is where Lion is expected to be launched or at least a RC will be handed out.
