    I, personally, would hold off before updating.
    There are some, as yet, unresolved issues with McAfee, Avast, ArcaBit, Avira and Sophos security programs.
    This update causes the computer to become unresponsive after installing and a restart.

    I mainly avoided because it was huge and i did not know what it does. I do manual updating now and if small I usually do it. Thanks Cindy.

    Always avoid anything that has Preview in the title! Hide it.
    You'd be a tester for the next month's update and who knows what it could break.

    The released updates are bad enough at breaking things.
