Apple today released OS X 10.7.1, the first maintenance update to OS X Lion. The update is available via Software Update.
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 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.

Good there's an update... but this fixes exactly none of the issues I've been having (which boil down to needing to restart every few days as performance has been degrading over time).

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!

Does this fix the greyed out audio issue on 2010 MBPs?

Hopefully this update will allow me to have a useful iMac again. I wonder how many tries its going to take me to get past the login screen just to get this downloaded and installed...

My wifi has been shaky since upgrading to Lion, glad to see it may be fixed. I don't want to get dropped while playing SC2 :D

There has to be more to it than just the items listed, which is why they use the language "including fixes that".

The only two issues I've had consistently with Lion are:

  1. Bluetooth becomes non-responsive when headset battery dies or device goes out of range. Only a restart fixes.
  2. Time Machine often claims that it "cannot find the backup disc" despite the Time Capsule being online and accessible via Finder.

Finally!!!

Lion being unresponsive when trying to play video after waking my iMac was annoying.

Funny, thought; my Wi-Fi has yet to drop a connection in Lion (dropping of Wi-Fi was very common in Snow Leopard).

Are they going to release a Server update side by side with this like they've done in the past? Or will Lion Server now act like an app and be updated on the App Store whenever they can be bothered.
