Safari 10.1 is out also for OS X v10.10.5, v10.11.6, and 10.12.4. (Normally Safari updates are included in current OS X updates, but it's not mentioned in the 10.12.4 docs.)

There's also an update to MacOS Server for 10.12.4 (see below).

Other new/updated Apple Support docs (including Safari 10.1 fixes) are below.

FYI on Nvidia Web Driver Updates: Users of Nvidia's web drivers should know that new OS X updates (versions or later build numbers after Security Updates) break any currently installed Nvidia web graphics driver. (Some non-Mac EFI cards are not supported by default OS X drivers.) Nvidia web driver updates usually appear first in Nvidia's driver prefs update check. I add driver and CUDA update D/L pages when spotted in the news and video topics page.
(FYI - CUDA 8.0.71 & 10.12.4/10.11.6/10.10.5 Graphics Driver updates downloads here.)
