    So does anyone know when the next OSX Lion update to 10.7.1 will be released?

    No one knows except Apple.

    But I'm thinking it will be released within the next week or two.

    No point getting your hopes up though, there may be additional problems introduced with the update.

    What exactly are you wanting them to fix with 10.7.1, OP?

    I actually think they may release 10.7.2 directly this time. 10.7.1 might have been internal. If iCloud will launch with the September iPod event, then it'll be in couple of weeks. So 10.7.2 will have to be released in couple of weeks. No reason to release 10.7.1 before that.

    If so, that'll be a first. Apple has never thrown a dot release update into "the wild" before. They're always sent it to developers first.

    All the pundits were expecting 10.7.1 real soon after the initial release. That didn't happen. I'm hoping this means they want to fix a lot all at once in this next update. Would make sense as they want Lion as stable as possible so they can concentrate on iCloud.

    10.7.2 has already been seeded to developers though.

    You didn't know when Lion was coming out, so why would they start giving dates for things now? If they knew, it would be out to stop all your whining.

    10.7.2 has been seeded, and I quote, "solely for testing iCloud".

    We will very likely see a 10.7.1 patch for the purpose of fixing many the plethora of Lion bugs out there. When 10.7.2 hits, it'll contain new features as well, aka iCloud.

    yeah but it doesn't include any bug fixes - just iCloud support

    Apple does have a targeted schedule for these things. Somebody knows. They aren't just released on a whim.

    As far as the "whining" goes... without complaints about bugs there would never be any reason to release an update... ever.

    That isn't true. It just doesn't come with bug fix release notes. Things have obviously changed though as SMB was broken in the first 10.7.2 and fixed in the new release.

    It would appear that this time Apple is taking an unprecedented step and not doing a 10.X.1 release--otherwise it would have been issued as a demo to developers. Instead, it looks like they are putting all of their energy into 10.7.2 (which is currently buggy as hell, so hopefully there will be many more builds before release).

    Seriously? I know what the facts look like, but the conclusion that they're skipping a number is, frankly, stupid. 10.x.y is merely a stamp for a load of individual code changes that are grouped together; nothing more, nothing less. If 10.7.2 were to be the first dot release, it would be 10.7.1.

    What they're likely doing is keeping 10.7.1 internal because they feel they can adequately test it themselves, and would rather developers concentrate their efforts testing and developing in time for the much more important iCloud release, which could really do with avoiding the problems that its predecessor experienced.

    Highly unlikely. The most likely explanation that doesn't require any unprecedented moves on Apple's part is that 10.7.1 is just taking longer than normal. It will be released to developers at some point soon and go through the normal couple weeks of beta, and then be released. The process will then repeat with 10.7.2.

    But, we're already on the second beta of 10.7.2. Whatever Apple is doing with 10.7.1, it doesn't make sense to those of us on the outside.

    No, we're not. Apple has officially seeded 0 complete betas of 10.7.2. All we have are a couple of versions of 10.7.2 with iCloud changes. 10.7.1 will be coming soon. Nothing about the current situation seems strange to actual developers who know how these processes work.

    10.7.2 have been seeded to developers couple weeks ago.

    No, there are couple of fixes for sure. Some of my issues with GM have been resolved in the latest 10.7.2 so it carries more changes than just iCloud support.

    No. What is happening is that 10.7.1 is a bug-fix release which will NOT be seeded to developers beforehand. In fact, 10.7.1 was pretty much in the oven right after Lion's release, and contains corrections identified AFTER the golden master version was distributed for sale.

    Therefore, there is NOT gonna be any 10.7.1 seeded to developers (Apple will release it directly to users); only 10.7.2.

    You realize that point releases are always seeded to developers first, right? It doesn't matter whether they are just bug fixes or not.

    In fact you can search "seeded to developers" on Macrumors and find a post about every single OS X point release since 10.2 (i.e. when Macrumors was launched in 2003) getting seeded to developers before its public release.
