OS X Lion released

Apple's latest OS upgrade has (according to Apple) over 250 new features, the most interesting being multi-touch gesture control (think iPhone-type touch navigation), AirDrop (easy mac-to-mac file sharing) and a revamped version of Mail.

It's a download-only product, available from the Apple App Store for £20.99.

Brett's 2p'orth:
If you don't need any of the features, it might be worth leaving it for a while to let the early adopters discover any gremlins that have evaded the beta-testers. And if you have any older apps that relied on Rosetta to run, they won't run on Lion. Looks like I'm going to have to find an alternative to Adobe GoLive. Gotta hate progress.
