Many more details about Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion) were unveiled at WWDC on June 6th. Newly disclosed noteworthy features include:

  • Lion creates a recovery partition on your Mac’s boot drive, which can be used to startup in emergences to repair the disk, reset passwords, or reinstall the OS
  • The boot volume is encrypted using Lion’s File Vault 2 technology, which is baked into the OS to protect the entire disk and not just home folders
  • Lion supports document versioning (saving snapshots while files are being edited), fully integrated with Time Machine
