WordPress Version 4.8 is available for download or update in your WordPress Dashboard
Your WordPress “Dashboard” is the back end of your site, the behind-the-scenes part that isn’t visible to the public; the place your WordPress functions and the core itself reside.
The Dashboard (wp-admin) is the first screen you see when you log into the “administration area” of your website. You can get to this dashboard by adding /wp-admin to the end of your site’s url. (i.e., www.wordpress.com/wp-admin).
The WordPress software is constantly being improved and should be upgraded to the latest version as often as possible.
When you don’t update your website you are risking its security and missing out on all the most recent improvements the open source developers have added. With each new WordPress release, new features are added, performance is improved, bugs are fixed, and existing features are enhanced to stay up to date with industry standards.
So you can see that monitoring and updating your WordPress website is very important! It keeps it clean and unencumbered, keeps it secure, helps ensure compatibility with plug-ins and you get to use the latest features!
