    Occasionally, Software Update pops up a dialog stating "Updates were installed by System Administrator. Do you want to check for additional updates now?" I've seen this message perhaps 5 or 6 times now.

    There is no indication of which updates were installed, and the "Installed Software" tab on the System Preferences/Software Update screen does not indicate that any software was installed.

    How do I find out what software was updated? Is Apple releasing frequent updates to Lion that are not bundled as a numbered release (for instance, 10.7.1)?

    Is there a log of what changes were made to your system?

    I've tried searching for this information with no success.

    Thanks!

    Go to System Preferences, Software Update, then click on Installed Software. That will show you what updates were installed, and on what date.
