I am seeing it from my MBP and iMac (both intel) but am not seeing it available from my M1 MacMini (all on same network) so there may be some staggered release based on config.

Update: Now it shows up for M1 as well - had to force it to check for update by changing the automatic settings.

My Huion graphic tablet stop working after Big Sur 11.5 update on M1 Mac mini. I can't use both main monitor and graphic tablet at once! I have no idea what they are doing with their macOS update but they screwed my device for no reasons.
