OS X 10.6.7 and 10.7 (Lion)
In the spirit of more communication being better, please note the following:
- PGP Engineering has been downloading and testing the OS X 10.6.7 seeds since their initial release. We have found no compatibility issues thus far, and the PGP 10.1.1 code appears to successfully allow the Software Update process to operate without creating a boot issue. However: this is not a guarantee that something won't change at the last minute. I do recommend that customers do a quick check of the forums and/or the Encryption Blog once Apple makes the update available. Also, note that 10.1.1 will be required to use Software Update - otherwise, the manual Combo Updater and script will be required.
- Apple made the first developer seed of OS X 10.7 available this morning. Engineering has downloaded it to begin initial testing and scoping, so we are on top of this.
However, we will be unable to make specific commitments as to a support date any time soon. This is due to a number of factors, not the least of which is the high likelihood that Apple will make significant changes to their code between now and the release date (which isn't announced). However, I might be able to pass along a qualitative statement like "so far it's looking good" or "wow, this will be hard" -- but right now we have not even a first opinion on the topic.
While there's nothing concrete in the info above, I hope the knowledge that our team is actively testing and scoping these new releases will be welcome news to our customers.
