The updates don't say anything about the graphical driver updates that were previous builds had included. I hope it's still there. Although looking at the slow download rate I'd say the amount of people updating is eating some major bandwidth which is to be expected.

What's the story with the separate security update? Are those security updates also included in 10.6.7? Why would one want to apply the security update and not the main update?

It's included in the update. Security update notes are usually put on a secondary page.
