I hope it fixes WIFI + Bluetooth disconnect and screen resolution bug when waking from sleep on M1 Macs. If it doesn't I am tempted to return my MacBook, it's getting quite annoying!

Has anyone installed this? Whats your impression?
I am using a MBP M1 and the booting is now quicker, the localisation bug at logon still exists. Bluetooth seems more stable but maybe driver issues with Wacom. It took around 20 mins to install for me. Will be doing some photo editing tomorrow so will have a better idea

Seems most Canon printers aren't properly supported anymore. I'm not sure how many (if any) other brands are affected, but I saw many complaints on the Apple support pages from Canon owners.
I have found Epson to be good with printer software and firmware updates available anytime I run into a print or scan issue with Big Sur.
