10 7 1
Apple today released OS X 10.7.1, the first maintenance update to OS X Lion. The update is available via Software Update and Apple's download pages.

The 10.7.1 update is recommended for all users running OS X Lion and includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability and compatibility of your Mac, including fixes that:

- Address an issue that may cause the system to become unresponsive when playing a video in Safari.
- Resolve an issue that may cause system audio to stop working when using HDMI or optical audio out.
- Improve the reliability of Wi-Fi connections.
- Resolve an issue that prevents transfer of your data, settings, and compatible applications to a new Mac running OS X Lion.

For detailed information on this update, please visit this website: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4764.

Apple has also released a version of OS X 10.7.1 specific to the latest MacBook Air and Mac mini models, adding a few additional fixes.

- Resolve an issue where MacBook Air may boot up when MagSafe Adapter is attached
- Resolve an issue causing intermittent display flickering on MacBook Air.
- Resolve an issue that causes the SD card slot in Mac mini to run at reduced speed with SD and SDHC media.

Finally, Apple has released a separate OS X Lion Update 10.7.1 (Server) update for those systems with Lion Server components installed, improving the reliability of the Apple File Service, and a unique OS X Lion 10.7.1 Update for Mac mini 2011 (Server) update including all of the OS X 10.7.1, Lion Server, and specific Mac mini changes.

Apple has been seeding developers with builds of 10.7.2 to prepare for the launch of Apple's full iCloud service later this year, but the company did not provide any builds of OS X 10.7.1 for developer testing.

Based on news reporting of Lion OSX, it seems like Apple has dropped the ball on this update? Is this the Windows equivalent of Vista on Mac? dun dun dun!

Rather small for a X.X.1 release. I am used to 100 MB+ updates.

Lion runs very hot doing less tasks then Snow Leopard.

+1. Lion runs very hot compared to SL. Pretty unhappy about that.

About Lion being Vista: oh dear, there are bugs in a .0 release! How surprising. This wasn't the case with all the previous OS X versions, no way. Oh.. wait, it was.

Vista was for its entire life span for a large part unstable and unusable for the majority of its users. Lion is running perfectly fine for the majority, safe a few bugs, and gives a very small percentage more serious problems — mostly when updating in stead of after a clean install.

This isn't anything new, this isn't unexpected. If you need a fully stable system: don't install a dot zero release. It's that simple.

For what it's worth: apart from a few strange things (mainly related to 3rd party apps) that were fixable, 10.7.0 has been running very smooth and very zippy on three different Macs here, one of which is 4.5 years old. Haven't upgraded anything though; all clean installs.
