There's no new plugins or bells and whistles, butt he latest free update for Logic Pro X 10.4.7 issues tons of maintenance improvements and bug fixes. Here's what's new.
With the recent release of MacOS Catalina, Apple have updated all their Pro Apps including Logic Pro X. Version 10.4.7 is focused primarily on squashing bugs and improving stability.
Here's what's changed... and, please remember the age-old advice relevant to all creatives... please do not update your main apps and OS mid-way through a project... check with your plugin developers and audio interface and hardware manufacturers that their drivers are compatible and stable with the new OS. If it doubt, don't update... and definitely you should keep a clone or backup of your system before updating, just in case.
