    Just now I received a mail from Apple with the new version (for developers) to 10.7.2 which I downloaded yesterday (!) although the new 10.7.2 is called "combo" update, note like the one just for iCloud.

    In the updated release notes seem not only to iCloud but emphasizes a number of things:

    - AirPort

    - AppKit

    - Graphics Drivers

    - Mac App Store

    - Mail

    - Spotlight

    also the same readme source clarifies that it can installed on:

    The OS X Lion 10.7.2 Update (Combo) updates

    - OS X Lion 10.7 or 10.7.1 GM builds.

    The build is the same as the previous one (11c40) but there is a difference in the name of the downloaded file

    today is


    while the previous


    and the sizes are different.

    Thetoday is 730.8 MB

    while the previous 766.36MB.

    Download the new package. Stay tuned ...

    if you found something different please post.

    Nope, no difference between the two. Wait, was there always a MobileMe preferencepane alongside iCloud?

    Still have LaunchPad re-arranging my items every reboot (sometimes log off too)... maddening!!!!

    Then iCoud beta 8 put it back because I have both and I could have sworn I only had iCloud before that. Not that I go into system preferences all that much.

    I had a chance to play with it a little more. No noticeable difference at all. I'll continue to poke around.

    I hope they don't make it a habit of updating builds without a build number change.

    Quick question:
    Does this new 10.7.2 combo update include all fixes included in 10.7.1?

    That's how all OS X Combo updates work.

    Then how was 10.7.2 released before 10.7.1?

    Were the fixes in 7.1 included in 7.2 before 7.1 was released?

    10.7.2 wasn't a combo update before.

    Edit: Maybe it was looking at the files...

    Hmm, I can't seem to find this download. Where did the links end up taking you?

    EDIT: Nevermind. I found it.
