Apple posts ThunderBolt Update 1.2.1 (replaces pulled 1.2)
(posted late Monday night, this is the revised update to replace v1.2 which was pulled last week due to causing boot problems with many 2011 Macs.)

"About Thunderbolt Software Update 1.2.1 (520 KB)
Adds support for the Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter

System requirements: OS X Lion 10.7.4 or later"

As before, if you do not have a need for the Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter I would not install this. (And even if I did need it, I'd wait for some feedback from early adopters first - watching apple's forums for reports.)


(Freeware VM) Virtualbox Feedback page updated:
Added another reader's feedback to the Mac owner reports on VirtualBox.
(Another Lion user w/VBox running OS X 10.6 in VM for Rosetta support. Also owns Fusion and Parallels Desktop. Didn't note specific version(s) used.)
