|Logic Pro X 10.7.5 Update|
Logic Pro 10.7.5 update for macOS 12.3 or later. (app store link)

|Apple MainStage 3.6.2 Update|
App store page for MainStage 3.6.2 update (macOS 12.3 or later).
See the release notes for a very long list of new features and enhancements.
|Xcode 14.1 Update|
Info from App store for Xcode 14.1 (for macOS 12.5 or later).
- Includes SDKs for iOS 16.1, iPadOS 16.1, tvOS 16.1, watchOS 9.1, and macOS Ventura.
- About the security content of Xcode 14.1 lists 4 CVEs fixed.
(See linked app store page for more details on Xcode.)
BTW: The Developer releases page had a Nov. 1st dated macOS Monterey 12.6.1, with same build number as the Oct. 24th release IIRC. The article on security fixes in macOS 12.6.1 also has a Nov 1, 2022 date now, but no new CVEs added since the Oct. 27 revision added 7 more. (Not running Monterey but if the build number hasn't changed guessing it's maybe an installer related fix?)

See the release notes for a list of new features/improvements.
