Ubuntu 5.5 beta feedback....
While I understand that 21.10 is technically unsupported, I thought I'd let you know Beta 5.5 is working great. I can now rearrange my monitors without crashing. System info below.

I found that with this beta version of the driver, I could no longer mount my USB external drive (wd passport) the script to unlock it would never work with this version of the displaylink driver installed. I had to go back to the last stable version of the displaylink driver V5.4. Otherwise though it works with kernel 5.15 fine,just not my USB drive, which I need to mount to use.
This is the script I found no longer works when this driver is present
./wdpassport-utils.py -u -d /dev/sdc #or example
It says multiple devices for some reason yet there are not, and i'm even specifying which device to unlock which never fails with earlier versions of the driver..
It is available from https://github.com/0-duke/wdpassport-utils for anyone else that wants to try and reproduce the issue I have had, who also has a wd-passport external drive to unlock.
This was on Kubuntu 21.10.
