Logic Pro X 10.7.5 Update
Logic Pro 10.7.5 update for macOS 12.3 or later. (app store link)
The release notes has a long list of improvements and fixes.
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?)

Mac GarageBand version 10.4.7 update
GarageBand version 10.4.7 for macOS 12.3 or later.
See the release notes for a list of new features/improvements.

SoftRAID 7.0 (Supports macOS Ventura)
SoftRAID 7.0 supports macOS Ventura and macOS Monterey. Latest version info in the change log. (Although not mentioned in the v7 change log, I assume M1 support since it was added in version 6 per their Support FAQ.) For SoftRAID 6 and earlier supported macOS versions, see the SoftRAID Compatibility Notes. A Free 14 Day Trial available.
