On May 12th Veeam has released the Update 2 for Backup and Replication 9.5

I’ve updated now my home lab and after testing our production site too. The Update runs fine with no errors, all jobs are finishing successful. From my side there is no reason to wait for installing the update.

Here are the most significant (for me) of them:
