Some of the web hosting service providers might already have updated your WordPress installation
The update brings the fixes to WordPress versions all way down to 3.7. Since it is a security release, the WordPress team did not provide any information about the security flaws that have been fixed. They might wait some time for people to update their websites before publicly announcing the security flaws fixed.
You can simply go to your WordPress dashboard and click the “Updates” menu from the side panel. There you can easily update your website to the safe, latest WordPress version. Just be sure to back up the website before updating since sometimes things might go wrong.
The next major version of WordPress will be 6.0 and it is set to be released at the end of May.
