A full week after releasing OS X 10.7.1 via Software Update and Apple’s download pages, the company has finally updated its Mac App Store offerings for OS X Lion and the OS X Lion Server components to the new versions.


The update should mean that users newly purchasing OS X Lion will receive 10.7.1 directly rather than having to install the base 10.7.0 version and then update to 10.7.1.

With previous major releases of Mac OS X released on disc, Apple has only rarely updated its retail packaging to include more up-to-date versions of the operating systems. For example, Apple’s original Mac OS X Snow Leopard discs were eventually supplanted by discs shipping with Mac OS X 10.6.3, but work continued on Snow Leopard after that time, topping out at version 10.6.8.
