macOS 10.15 Supplemental Update 2?
Saw a new build number (19A603) for macOS 10.15 Catalina in the Oct. 21st dev releases. I assume another "Supplemental Update", available via software update. (Last week's Supplemental Update was build 19A602.) This may be a revised installer/bug fix, since I'm told if you installed the 19A602 update, you may not get the 19A603 update. (The info in software update is the same as last week's Supplemental Update, and like the last 2 Mojave Supplemental Updates, Apple didn't name the second one a "2".)
Micromat Drive Scope 1.2.7 update
Drive Scope version 1.2.7 (use in-app update check) lists these changes/fixes:
  • Updated for full macOS 10.15 Catalina compatibility.
  • Fixed error when reading external NVMe drives.
  • Fixed crash related to NTFS formatted SD cards.
  • Fix for external drives sometimes not displaying drive logo.
  • Updated SAT SMART Driver installation for macOS Catalina support.
  • Updated Vendor ID database for NVMe Data table.
  • Updated Sparkle update framework to version 1.22.0.
  • Added additional drive manufacturer company logos.
  • Other minor fixes and enhancements.
