Here is the current improvement that users will get with the new version:

This is a patch release to fix issues in v0.55.1 due to an installer bug and .NET 5 doing an update for the runtime. We deemed important for stability based on incoming rates. See v0.55.0 for full release notes.

The 0.55.1 release was in place to serve power users looking to customize their Windows devices. Also, was also in place to address the stability.
