A day to remember!
The first maintenance release of the first long-term support release is out.
Blender 2.83.1 LTS features a total of 33 bug fixes. There are no new features so it is safe to upgrade during production. A new maintenance release is already being worked on and planned for early July, the goal is to update LTS versions as often as possible in a “rolling release” fashion.

An add-on is in the works to check for automatic updates, in the meantime you can follow Blender on social media:
Keep reporting any issues you find to make this LTS the most stable release ever!
