Apple has released new builds of iCloud for Mac and OS X 10.7.2 to developers.

The new iCloud for Mac build is beta 7 while the new OS X build is version 11C37.

The new OSX Lion 10.7.2 build 11C37 is centered around the iCloud, which is now the company's focus for OSX and iOS 5. Apple has packaged the iCloud functionality as a separate installer for Lion. With the new OSX Lion build comes a new "iCloud for OSX Lion" package that must be installed on top of the new Lion build.

iCloud scheduled for this fall launch, allows users to easily make their Mac iCloud compatible, and it includes the updated Back to my Mac service, Documents and Data in the Cloud, and Find my Mac.

Apple has also issued an update to the developer build of Safari 5.1 which resolves conflicts with iCloud's sync of Bookmarks and Readling List items. iPhoto 9.2 beta 2 has also been released to resolve issues with iCloud's Photo Stream.

Apple recently went live with its iCloud website, which is set to be the company's big cloud-based services push. The website is currently in beta and is apparently only available to those who have an existing MobileMe account on a OSX machine.

Both downloads are available to developers through the iCloud developer portal.

Apple recently released the fifth beta version of its new operating system for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch devices. iOS 5 Beta 5 build 9A5288d is available over the air for developers.
