We're looking at this now. A few things to note --
The Gallery lag is gone. as in GONE
New Gmail is included, as is Voice search/actions and Google Voice. Have to wait for Market to cache itself before I can check the rest of the Google apps, but I'll bet they are the newest versions.
*edit* looks like they all are updated
I have it on good authority that this will patch the universal root method o_O
Email passwords are still unencrypted.
I'll run this for a few days, but it seems to be a minor update.
After the Market settled in, my applications started automatically restoring themselves. New Froyo feature that I haven't had the pleasure of seeing before. Copy protected apps got skipped it seems.

After updating to 2.2.1, I ran Quadrant Standard benchmark and did not see any change compared to 2.2. I think that previous leaks of FRG33 showed that it was running faster. But, my nexus one does feel a bit snappier.
Other changes that I have noticed are the following:
* wifi does not disconnect anymore. I received emails overnight and wifi was still on in the morning
* PIN login does not do landscape when phone is titled
* Swipe did not work after upgrade. But the fix is to reinstall it. This was the case with each upgrade I had before.

Now let's hope Cyanogen will integrate it in 6.1 and MoDaCo will "kitchen" CM 6.1 soon after. I'm not rolling back to stock for anything.

Wow, duno if this is just me, but when I boot up my phone, the streaming colored X symbol on the boot up animation streams much faster than before.
I mean at first you see the static Nexus One colored "X," then it streams itself slowly initially then it suddenly streams the colored sparks quickly. Now the quick sparks are flying compared to 2.2, and the overall length of boot time is faster imo. Anyone else noticing this?
edit: Also the phone just seems snappier in general, very cool!

The Gallery lag is gone. MS Exchange accounts get administrator access so they can remotely administer your device (even though its not a company phone). That means pattern unlock is gone. EDIT: Deactivate the Administrator by going to Settings > Location & Security > Select Device Administrators. Exchange Email and Calendar sync remains on the phone.
The wifi issue is still there for me at least (other users have reported it fixed). They seem to have broken a '2.1 bug' (fixed in 2.2) where the ringer did not go off at times for an incoming call.
I think I was happier with 2.2 and not upgrading to 2.2.1. I upgraded because a lot of users reported thw wifi issue being fixed, seems they did not test it out well.

Received it OTA yesterday (AT&T n1 in Canada on Rogers).
Gallery lag is definitely gone, seems to load individual images rather.
Weather widget loading looked a little different on first boot (had to tap to refresh/reload). in the fullscreen weather there was a blue loading bar at the bottom, hadn't seen that before).
Still annoyed that when I put the phone in the dock the dock screen's weather will appear then it will switch to a 'Cannot display at the time' or whatever the non-weather display messaging is.
Overall seems very nice and snappy.

Last night I did the "checkin" routine and as soon that finished, I went to the About phone / System Updates and saw that it was in the process of downloading 2.2.1
The update process took about 5 minutes (AT&T San Francisco)
So far WiFi seems to be behaving itself with regards to the phone coming out of stand by mode (and maintaining a connection).
Though, WiFi still fails to automatically connect to a known WiFi AP when entering in range.
