We need MacOS 14.4.1 more than anything right now. Too many things are broken in it.

6.46GB...must be something more than just bug fixes and security updates
It's only a few hundred MB if you don't have betas enabled.

I think the article is misleading, as it only shows up with a beta profile (so it‘s no public release but a RC).
The reason you get a 6GB update is because you go from a probably stable release (17.4) to a beta profile RC, which always is a full install.
Patience. It shows up now on my 15 PM and I’m not on any beta. This is definitely a public release and not an RC.
