I’m a Ghost user, just like you. My guess is that updates are first released to Ghost(Pro) before general release. However, this is a minor release, so I don’t see the urgency. Moreover, it was only released three days ago.
The Ghost dashboard will inform you when the update is available, or simply check with ghost check-update.
