For past few weeks, Apple had been releasing builds of Mac OS X Lion version 10.7.3, to various developers. Now the new OS X is available for public.
Apple released updated Mac OS X “Lion” to version 10.7.3 on Wednesday, 1 February 2012, to the public. This update includes several bug fixes and changes to Lion’s Directory Services.
