Developer's preview of Lion released

Apart from the new MacBooks, Apple has also released a developer's preview of Mac OS Lion.

Among the new features in Lion are:

Mission Control

- unifies Exposé®, Dashboard, Spaces, and full screen apps to give users a bird’s eye view of every app and window running
- with a swipe, the desktop zooms out to display open windows grouped by app and thumbnails of full screen apps as well as Dashboard.

Launchpad

- With a click, Launchpad displays all your Mac apps in a full screen layout where users can launch, re-order or organize apps into folders.
- Apps can also be arranged into multiple pages and users can swipe between them.

Full screen apps

- With one click, the application window goes full screen
- You can swipe from one full screen window to another and even back to the Desktop or Dashboard.

New multi-touch gestures

- Pinching your fingers to zoom in on a web page or image
- Swiping left or right to turn a page or switch between full screen apps
- Swiping up to enter Mission Control.
