Apple posts Mac OS X 10.7.1 to fix Wi-Fi, video problems

Special Mini, Air updates solve added issues

Apple has released Mac OS X 10.7.1, its first major update for Lion. The patch solves a collection of bugs, including reported trouble with Wi-Fi connections. Also fixed are data migration barriers, audio cutting out when using HDMI or optical audio output, and an error which caused computers to become unresponsive when playing video in Safari.

The standard client update is a 79.29MB file, while the server download is 88.26MB. Apple has also, however, released a distinct client update for 2011 Mac minis and MacBook Airs, as well as a server update for the Mini alone. Resolved Air issues include ones with flickering displays, and booting when a MagSafe adapter is connected. For the Mini, Apple has dealt with a glitch that slowed down its SD slot.

The v10.7.1 update is available either through Apple's website or Lion's Software Update feature. As of this writing, the OS' Mac App Store page shows only v10.7 as accessible by new buyers.

    How about

    fixing the inability to search Windows-based mapped drives?

    fixing Windows-based shares showing the contents of the root when the path is to a folder somewhere below?

    My update was only 17.4 MB through Software Update. Maybe the 2011 MacBook Pros has its own update too.?
    I hope it also fixes getting stuck between spaces when using the gesture.

    Universal system option?!?

    ...I will repeat my plea to end the madness of a variety of OSX & updates for every bloody machine. It makes troubleshooting (with clean boot partitions/drives), migrating & even functional use of mirrored systems (BIG feature I'd like to see in TM) between desktops & mobiles so problematic that it would seem to counteract the initial design concept of the portable home folder???

    And there is no way in **ll I will place my confidential or client info on an Apple cloud server - 'Sorry Charlie' - this die hard mac user is starting to appreciate the concept os XP, which I am still running on occasion with supported apps in VirtualBox without problem or expense since the core-duo days...

    Faster after upgrade

    My initial impression of this update is MUCH faster than 10.7.0. No problems have surfaced yet.

    FaceTime still kills internal mic upon call connec

    I was hoping the update would fix this! If I go to the System preferences pane for Sound, and choose Input, the sound levels of the mic are fine, but once a FaceTime call connects, the mic levels go dead and the person I'm calling can't hear me. I can hear them fine. PLEASE fix this Apple. I basically can't use FaceTime on my iMac now.

    No suerte

    Hopefully there's a 10.7.2 soon. I'm still experiencing the HDMI audio cutout problem on my 2011 Mac Mini, just not as often.
