In the past a few people have had problems with printer driver updates, so as with any update, do allow for others to test them first. Unfortunately it is impossible to test all of the drivers to ensure they work properly. Therefore, if you are inclined to apply this update take caution and back up your system with Time Machine or a cloning utility so you can easily restore in the event of a problem.
