Warning with is under investigation as a regression from Early test shows it affects Windows users using VSS snapshot-policy to backup drive root (e.g. C:\), basically not backing that up.
Those doing such backup might want to hold off update. If you update and error, follow up at issue topic.

Fortunate I only backup specific folders of all my Windows machines (4) then, as I haven’t seen any problems the past two days.

Users who are not on Windows should use mono 5.10 or above. Previously any version 5 would do.
Most distributions that went to mono v5 at all should be fine. You can run mono --version to check. gives a nice compilation of versions for distros.
Windows is quite good at updating .NET Framework, so the move to 4.7.1 from 4.6.2 should be fine.
