Hopefully with a fix for display refresh rates and resolutions when using an external monitor. 11.1 has been terrible - Big Sur generally boots into a lower resolution and/or refresh rate on the external display ever since 11.1 was released (though there are reports of this issue cropping up in the betas) - was absolutely fine with 11.01. Running a MacBook Pro 16" here with a 27" BenQ monitor and USB-C connection, so nothing too exotic.

I installed 11.1... it's pretty decent when compared to Catalina. The way tabs are done on Safari is annoying, not sure why Apple loves to hide options from users. If I want the ugly add tab thing there, let me have it.

Mac OS updates are becoming eye-candy updates rather than adding any productivity features. There are so many things that can be improved.
1. Contacts - Allow exporting to a .csv file 2. Allow Contacts to format phone numbers automatically if Country field is non-empty. 3. Allow printing envelopes with custom "from address" that user can set 4. Tons of Mail improvements - this is my pet peeve. Apple Mail is a toy, a joke. I could list a dozen productivity and feature improvements. Apple - if you are listening. Just look at the third party mail clients and see what they've done.
