This release features some of the most important back-end updates in recent years. The updates include:
- Automatic security and maintenance updates: many existing WordPress websites support this impressive and long awaited feature

Should you upgrade to WordPress 3.7?
The short answer is “yes”, however we recommend waiting 1-2 weeks before upgrading your website. This will allow third party theme and plugin developers to ensure compatibility, as well as address any potential security issues with the new release.
