    17.4MB update for me on a 2011 MBP.

    Fixes issues with Videos in Safari, Optical/HDMI audio output, and some other things.

    Such a small update means it probably doesn't do much, if anything, besides the listed features.

    Still waiting for new HD3000 drivers... 10.7.2, maybe.

    It's about time! :D

    Edit: It looks like only 5 items are addressed and dual monitor support doesn't look like one of them. Hopefully it won't disappoint me, updating right now.

    Edit #2: Just rebooted, I'm very disappointed and that is an understatement. It took them a month to push out this tiny update and it barely fixes anything. I have an external monitor that might as well be a paperweight when using full screen apps, because to Apple, it obviously makes sense to make an app full screen on a 17" monitor instead of leaving it on a 24". 10.7.2 better fix this damn issue.

    sigh. they took a *month* to fix just these 5 things in a 17mb download? Here i was expecting a 200mb update fixing *all* (or even most) of the stuff that is wrong with lion.

    Guess they just have time for their developers to work on iOS5 and iCloud instead of making iLion workable.

    I would imagine most of these fixes were ready right around the time Lion was released, but they probably didn't want to release a patch update so close to release.

    Remember the thread about WHEN 10.7.1 would be released? I hope that you weren't waiting for the developers to see it first. We'd still be waiting.

    17.4 on a 2010 17". Just installed it, I'm not sure if I can tell a difference yet or it's just all in my head, I'll report in in a bit.

    Opening folders in Launchpad is still jerky. That is one of my biggest peeves in Lion, because people always assume my computer is lagging or something, which it isn't. Yes, before you ask, I'm a dork.

    I hope it helps. I resolved a lot of my issues by doing a clean install of Lion. I started with 10.5 and upgraded each time from there. I had almost 3 years of updates, applications, and who knows what else on there. The upgrade to Lion went fine, but there were a lot of problems. Audio, video, the mouse jumping around the screen, and really bad performance in general. I finally did a clean install and things are better. I still have issues with the mouse jumping into the corners and turning on the screen saver, so hopefully that gets resolved somewhere along the lines. Performance is much better without all that legacy stuff hanging around.

    Most of us work hard for [our] money, and we expect basic functionality at least, while yes, expecting some bugs that don't interfere dramatically with your workflow.

    Seems like your computer is working just fine...I consider being able to complain on an internet forum "basic functionality". That being said, YAY FOR HDMI AUDIO FIX!!! My poor theater Mini has been waiting for this one...

    Alas, you have low expectations of your system.

    Well, looks like Snow Leopard shall serve me for a longer while.

    I half expected "improved battery life by reducing redundant usage of GPU for animation" somewhere in there, but perhaps I was expecting too much.

    Lion shipped with blatantly obvious bugs that are obvious even to the lightest user, such as UI bugs that frankly shouldn't have passed any QA, but especially not Apple's QA. One would hope some of those to be fixed in an update, such as 10.7.1, wouldn't you?

    Just saying "creating drama over the shape of an icon" shows what level you play on. Acting like that in any kind of development environment would have you outside the door in seconds.

    When does it become necessary to care about a bug/change? At what level do *you* deem a bug worthy of fixing? As long as it doesn't affect *you*, is my guess. Meaning that, as long as *you* are not affected by bugs others are affected by, those "others" become whiners in your opinion.

    Lion Tweaks at least gives you a front end to do just that, among other things. Doesn't really solve the problem, though.

    To all pundits who mocked when I said there would be NO developer seed for 10.7.1:

    WHO IS YOUR DADDY NOW? HOW DOES YOUR CROW TASTE?

    I EXPECT AN APOLOGY FROM EVERY ONE OF YOU, THANKS!
