The cat’s out of the bag: During Apple’s third-quarter financial earnings call Wednesday, chief financial officer Peter Oppenheimer announced that Lion would debut Thursday on the Mac App Store.

Lion is the eighth iteration of Apple’s Mac operating system, OS X, and brings a host of new features to the Mac, including window management utility Mission Control; app organiser Launchpad; full-screen mode for applications; state-saving utility Resume; Auto Save and Versions; AirDrop for local file sharing; a whole slew of updates to existing Apple applications, and over 250 other features.

Lion will be available Thursday for $31.99 exclusively from the Mac App Store for users running OS X 10.6.8 or later using Core 2 Duo systems or later. Users on Intel Macs powered by a Core Solo or Core Duo processor will not be able to run this version of the OS.
