How are drupal updates handled?

I just did a new install of drupal via the control panel. It installed v7.60 As soon as it installed, I got an email saying an update is needed to v7.61. How is this best done? I think I am using the centralized drupal install so is there an automated update button to push?

We deploy security updates centrally and all site using the automated install will receive them automatically. I'll copy jamie here who usually handles those upgrades. You won't have to anything for drupal core but you will have to regularly update any modules you've installed yourself.

Drupal releases both regular updates and security updates. Whenever a security update is released, we upgrade immediately. However, if a non-security release comes out, we usually wait until it has been properly tested and/or it is not a holiday :). We will probably be upgrading to 7.61 next week.
