Tonight, Apple finally released the long-awaited update for macOS Big Sur 11.2 for all users. Previously, three Release Candidate versions of the update had already been distributed to the registered developers. These versions are usually identical to the final version, unless even larger construction sites are discovered, which was obviously the case in this case.
The last update of the RC could have taken care of fixing a security hole in a Unix command. The update to macOS Big Sur 11.2 can be initiated as usual in the system settings in the software update area. If it is not shown to all of you already, be patient. The update will be rolled out in waves and may not be available on all computers yet.

It also fixes an issue that could cause Bluetooth to not work properly. The update to macOS Big Sur 11.3 also fixes issues related to the correct synchronization of iCloud Drive folders.
