When we reported the release of the Mac OS 10.7.1 update last week we were unsure whether or not new updaters would have to always grab additional updates through Software Update. However, it now looks like that won’t be the case as Apple has today updated Lion and the roughly 4GB installer to 10.7.1 on the Mac App Store. Apple will most likely carry on this new trend of releasing the delta update via SU first, followed by updating Lion in the Mac App Store for new downloaders.

The changelog from 10.7.1, which included the usual bug fixes and apparently improved issues users have had with Wi-Fi, is below if you’re interested.

The 10.7.1 update is recommended for all users running OS X Lion and includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability and compatibility of your Mac, including fixes that:

– Address an issue that may cause the system to become unresponsive when playing a video in Safari – Resolve an issue that may cause system audio to stop working when using HDMI or optical audio out – Improve the reliability of Wi-Fi connections – Resolve an issue that prevents transfer of your data, settings, and compatible applications to a new Mac running OS X Lion
