You can either wait 13 days for the final release, or run "sudo
update-manager -d" if you don't mind using the beta. You'll get a
notificaiton in the update manager that a new distribution is available. The
dist upgrades are pretty big (about 1GB) so make sure you have a good
internet connection and/or plenty of time before you do it.
