I had the false impression that this update was not a security update, just like last month.
Adding a link to the CVE and change the wording might help to emphasis that this update contains a security fix.
Agree it is worded confusingly. Edit: Actually, looking at it and the actual release notes for the two versions, I think it’s just a bad copy/paste job from a template.
