According to Apple’s Support page, the Snow Leopard update contains fixes for several small issues, including transferring information, settings, and applications from your Snow Leopard machine to a Mac running Lion; networked printers that automatically pause and then cancel print jobs; and a system audio short when using HDMI or an optical audio out cable.
You'll need to be using the latest version of Snow Leopard (10.6.8) to run this update; otherwise, you can upgrade using Update Combo v1.1, which includes the above fixes as well as those addressed back in June with OS X 10.6.8's initial release.

Acer says Apple has fired the first shot in a patent war, Verizon does a leadership switcheroo, Adobe says mea culpa about a supposed Lion bug, and Apple might be looking to enter the video-streaming market. The remainders for Friday, July 22, 2011 says war ain’t nothing but a heartbreaker, friend only to the undertaker.
Lion includes more than 250 new features, among them support for full-screen apps, Auto Save, Versions, Resume, a slew of new Multi-Touch gestures, Mission Control, and Launchpad. It’s also the first iteration of Mac OS X not to be made available on an install disc. At the moment, the $30 Mac App Store download is the only way to grab Lion, though Apple says a $69 USB stick edition of the OS will be available next month. The software is currently available in 123 countries around the world.
