Epson Printer Driver Update

Last week I purchased an Epson printer: Epson WorkForce Wireless All-In-One Inkjet Printer (610). It is a Wi-fi based printer, no need any cables except power. I set up its network connection from its front panel to join my local Wi-fi network. On my MacBook Pro, I had remove the printer once. The second time when I added a new printer, this Epson was in the available list. It was connected and tested OK.

To my surprise, yesterday when I run the Software Update from Mac icon in the top left conner menu, I found this new update for the Epson printer:
