Apple released the third preview version of Mac OS X Lion, which is due to launch on Macs this summer.Since then developers (and others with access) have been poring over the latest release for any new features Apple snuck in.

We took a look at what they found and gathered the best new features here. Our favourite? The Instapaper-like reading lists that sync between Safari and iPhone. Very cool.

Reading List syncs with iOS devices

We knew about Reading List already, but now developers can actually use it. Of note: it syncs with your iOS devices. That should make Instapaper nervous.

Fancy new wallpapers

Cult of Mac dug up a bunch of new wallpapers that will be included in Lion. You can check the all out here.

New log in screen

The log in screen got a simple look. Now it's just a grey, metallic-like background with dark letters.

New iCal notifications

We already knew iCal was getting a makeover, but the latest version changes your 'To-Do' list to a pop-up 'Reminders' list. It's nothing groundbreaking, but it still looks like a nice tweet.

Mission Control gets a refresh

Mission Control, which is a hybrid of Spaces and Expose, has a new look that makes it easier to control your desktop's appearance. You get a cool view with thumbnails of each screen.

Scroll bars change colours

This is another minor (but cool) tweak. Scroll bars on open windows will change colours to blend with the background better.
