Mac OS 10.7 Lion - don't upgrade yet!

Apple Computer is expected to release a new version of its Mac OS sometime around the end of July.   The new version, Mac OS 10.7, is also known as “Lion”. 

While there are many interesting and useful new features in this release, testing with the pre-release version of the Lion Mac OS on DePauw’s network has revealed some compatibility issues with network printing and file sharing. 

We recommend that you DO NOT upgrade until we have had time to work with the official version and research and develop solutions to these compatibility issues.   An announcement will be made when the compatibility issues have been resolved or suitable workarounds are able to be implemented. 

Please contact the HelpDesk (765-658-4294) or helpdesk@depauw.edu if you have any questions.
