Apple's Mac OS X Lion 10.7 new features

Unveiled by Steve Jobs himself last October of 2010, the next major version of Mac OS X, Lion 10.7 is not yet officially available but the OS was already released to developers to test the platform and of course to fill the Mac App Store up. After it has been released new features were found, of course what would an update do without it?

9to5Mac have compiled a list of the new things that the OS offers to future Lion users which is expected to be released this Summer. Here are the new things we should expect from the Lion.
  • TRIM support for super-fast SSD writing
  • Recovery partition to your startup hard drive removing the need for the OS X installer disc in case something goes wrong
  • Possible Dropbox-like functionality for MobileMe storage
  • Find my Mac functionality in Apple’s MobileMe service
  • Removed support for PowerPC applications
  • Removed Front Row (possible it’s only in the seeded development OS, however)
  • Podcast Producer, a true podcast production tool letting you create various shows, episodes, and effortless edit, upload, and share your podcasts
  • Yahoo IM! support in iChat including video and audio conferencing, iOS-style symbol keys (hold down a key on your keyboard and an onscreen symbol list appears like in iOS), and live URL previews when you hover over a URL link
