UPDATE WITHOUT DELAY
Joomla! 3.8.1 includes a few important fixes for bugs introduced with v3.8.0.
Reason to update ASAP?
The recent Joomla! v3.8.0 SECURITY FIX resulted in the Redirects Component not working.
Unless you update to v3.8.1 from Joomla! 3.8.0 then your website will be presenting lots of Error 404s for links which you may have previously fixed using the component.
Not using Joomla! 3.8.0. Why not? Keep your website up to date!

Back up before updating is highly recommended
Protect your assets.
Perform a FULL backup of your website (database and files) BEFORE updating the Joomla! CMS and/or its extensions.
