OS X 10.11.1, Security Update 2015-007, Mac EFI Security Update 2015-002, Safari 9.0.1:
Downloads and related Apple docs on these updates. (Some only available via software update.)

(OS X version/build number changes typically mean users of Nvidia's web drivers will need a driver update from Nvidia. Check for updates using Nvidia's prefs panel since they're available that way before being posted on a web page. An existing older driver may not load after the OS update. IIRC resetting the nvram will revert to the default OS X driver (as can the Nvidia prefs before updating), however some models of Nvidia cards may not be supported by standard OS X drivers.)

Nvidia OS X CUDA/Driver Updates: See Graphics card topics page for links to Oct. 23rd posted Nvidia CUDA and driver updates for OS X 10.11.1 and OS X 10.10.5, 10.9.5 builds after the Oct. 21st security update is installed.

Other News/Updates:
  • An LG EF9500 OLED TV owner wrote there's updates to the built-in Netflix and Amazon video apps today. (Said Amazon video update supposed to fix HDR content problems but reports are mixed. Also suggested turning TV off and back on after apps updated to a new version.)

  • An LG 55EC9300 OLED TV owner from Australia said there's a 5.00.15 update, which is assumed to fix the memory leak problem with the 5.00.04 update (if SIMPLINK enabled) that was pulled last month. (A US owner said it's not appearing in an update check today.)
