2.1.8a1 was just announced. If there's no immediate urgency, I'd wait a
few weeks and then upgrade to 2.1.8.

The bin/update script is run by 'make install' as part of the
installation of an upgrade to update list configurations and other
data to the new version as necessary. It can also be run stand alone
to do the same thing. It won't do anything if upgraded software hasn't
already been installed.
