    I'm curious to know if the much expected 10.7.1 finally address the most important issues that people were having. I haven't downloaded it, but for what I see they didn't fix my issue with Mission Control of not being able to see ALL windows even when scrolling up a stack.

    So what was your problem, and was it fixed?

    Yes it fixed my problem and it wasn't listed.

    iMovie would always crash while exporting a movie. Now after I installed 10.7.1 I can export with no issues!

    P.S. Not all fixes are ever listed publicly, many fixes are not mentioned. No software developer or company ever wants a long list of fixes performed, that would be bad for business in that they would be admitting that their software had so many issues. Get it ;)

    Safari Web Content is no longer taking 1.5GB of my memory.


    EDIT: Nevermind...it's back to 1.3GB now

    the only thing I notice is safari don't ultilize so much ram now. I don't have other problem. Previously I have slow wifi connection after wake but after upgraded to 8G ram, the problem no longer exist.

    Happy with Lion.

    Good to hear the Safari bug is fixed. I was on Chrome Canary for the past few days, Safari would make my system crawl unless I closed and relaunched it once a day. I'm back on it now, hopefully for good.

    I still have a lot of mission control bugs. For example, if I have Firefox and Mail open and I go to mission control and I try to switch to Mail, for some reason, Firefox zooms in a little and then goes back and nothing happens. If I click on Mail again, then it finally switches to Mail. I've already reported that bug a long time ago. It still isn't fixed. Hope they fix it in 10.7.2 :(

    I had a few issues that seem to be resolved.

    13" 2011 MBP:

    If I closed the lid enough to take the screen dark, and then reopened quickly the machine would freeze with only the keys lit. Only solution was to shutdown with the power button. This no longer happens. It still takes a few seconds to kick back on, but it no longer freezes.

    I am now seeing at least 1GB more free RAM.

    Wifi reconnects much more quickly when waking from sleep.

    2011 Mac Mini Server:

    Had an issue where I couldn't send mail from the mail app using my MobileMe account. Spent a lot of time with AppleCare trying to resolve the issue to no avail. Did 10.7.1 update and the problem disappeared.

    Had an issue where my networked devices (particularly Apple TV) would lose connection via WiFi to this machine. It was random and seems to have gone away, but enough time hasn't passed to be totally sure.

    I'm also noticing more free RAM on this machine.

    Mission Control works a little better for me with this update.

    Nope... I still have to manually re-connect to my wifi network everytime my MBP wakes from sleep. Oh, and I just experienced something I never have before: when I hovered over a link on a webpage (Firefox 5.0.1), my MBP went to a plain, gray screen. I had no idea how to get out of it & ended up doing a hard shutdown (holding down power button).

    Active directory doesn't work.

    GPU performance still trashed.

    Nope, none of my issues were fixed.

    Sounds like a Kernel Panic. Did it tell you to shut the computer down in multiple languages on the grey screen? Save the crash report you get when you restart, in it you can see what caused the crash.

    getting silly now

    What exactly did the osx 10.7.1 update fix?

    My MBP still wont connect automatically to wifi.
    Mail still does this weird freeze thing but no colour wheel and requiring restart and sometimes wont send emails until I restart mail, the two of which aren't synonymous. Graphics still glitch.
    Still no functionality of time machine with my NAS drive not to mention the incompatible software ive to date, spent thousands on. I'm willing to let that one go for an OS that's solid.

    To their credit though, I can now create a sparse bundle image! I guess that makes up for it?

    No, Mission Control is still there. Also, still no ability to rearrange desktops.

    still doesn't fix my issue of pages not refreshing when going back in Safari, (perhaps this is how it is supposed to work now)

    sticking with safari 5.0 as this works as expected

    not noticed any other improvements, seems the same as before

    10.7.1 contains new nvidia drivers. Any difference to UI performance with the nvidia 9400m?

    Lion dual screen

    I am still on Snow Leopard - just seems Lion is too problematic at this stage to upgrade. I was hoping 10.7.1. would resolve most issues so I can upgrade. No pressure at this time though - just the geek in me wanting to test drive something new I guess :rolleyes:

    My biggest concern is dual monitor usage. I use an additional monitor with my 2011 iMAC (via MDP/Thunderbolt) and works great in SL. I don't want to be limited in my dual monitor usage with Lion.

    When does Lion "blank" your second monitor - ONLY when you use full-screen apps? If so, I just won't use apps in full-screen, but then , are there apps that FORCES you to use full screen, or not?

    I would normally work in iPhoto/Photoshop on one monitor and keep documents or Firefox open on the second monitor. Will this be inmpacted at all by Lion's limitations on the second monitor usage?

    I can't understand how Apple would REDUCE functionality on a new release of their OS. I just came from Windows, and now it seems OS X is on a downwards spiral? I hope not, as I have been EXTREMELY happy with SL and want to see OS X go from strength to strength.

    Full screen is only an option available to you. No program that I used when I had Lion installed is full screen only. It works the same as snow leopard if you stay away from that full screen button.

    Mission Control is still laggy when I open it for the first time, or after a while not using it. Especially with 2+ windows open the animation is laggy... :(

    Ah, great! Thanks gumble - that is the answer I wanted to hear :D

    after a few hours use, Safari seems to be using a lot less RAM, just over 200MB so far, was on about 400 - 500 by this time previously

    No it didn't fix my issue. When opening App Store it freezes. Also when ever I click on anything on App Store it freezes and have to wait around 30 secs for the next page to load.

    I find it hard to believe that this could be attributed to the update, considering what files have been affected by it (have a look yourself).
