Apple Releases OS X 10.7.5

Following this afternoon’s OS X 10.8.2 update, which adds Facebook integration and other goodies to Mountain Lion, OS X 10.7.5 is available for Lion users. The big addition to Lion is Gatekeeper, which is a security feature that allows you to choose whether 3rd party applications can run on your Mac or not. For new Mac users, it’s an excellent security option for those purchasing and only allowing software from the Mac App Store. For developers, allowing 3rd party apps is critical for development tools and other third party applications from vendors. Thankfully, it’s easy to use, and works the same on Lion as it does on Mountain Lion.

Apple has pushed out a series of bug fixes as well, and we’ll be posting a direct download link to the combo update and add release notes once they’re available. In the meantime, Lion users will want to check Software Update for the latest download.

Update — You’ll find the direct downloads below:
