    Hi everyone,
    I'm new on the board. After there's a system update with Lion, is there a place I can go to see what's been updated, if it's not a .# update? I remember being able to view a list with SL. Thanks!

    No. When your system updates, like last night. Where can I find a list of what was done during that update? I know it shows under About This Mac when it goes from 10.7.1 -> 10.7.2 and things like that, but what about the update my computer found yesterday? It never says what was going to happen, or what was installed. Just that there were 2 updates. Know what I mean?

    It tells you in the little details section. Granted, it's just a short summary.

    I've actually never questioned an update coming from Apple. Now, I may wait a few days if it's an app and not system related just to see if others say the update "broke" something but other than that... just accept the software updates.

    Where is the details section? That's what I can't find.

    It's in the software app right below the list of updates you're about to download/install. Highlight an update and it will show the major changes.

    That's the only time you see it... right before you approve the update(s). Otherwise, you'll have to go to Apple's site for the full list of changes as mentioned earlier.

    When the software update app finds an update (as opposed to you opening the app and checking youself), you have to click on the "Details" button in the window that pops up alerting you of the update(s) in order to see what is going to be installed.
