The Mac App Store, introduced in the Mac OS X 10.6.6 update in early January, is also a major focus of the Mac OS X 10.6.7 update, which, given the lack of new issues in the latest build, should signal a public release in the next couple weeks.

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion is expected to be released this summer, taking cues from the successful evolution of iOS by bringing many updates to Apple's desktop OS, highlighted by features like Launchpad, full-screen apps, and Mission Control.

Stay tuned for release notes when Mac OS X 10.6.7 is available to the public, and don't forget to read up on best practices for upgrading your Mac.
