It is, but because it has to be pushed out to millions of F-Secure users globally it normally always takes a little while. You can try to check it manually.
Right-click the F-Secure SAFE product icon in the system tray and select Check for updates.
I also tried version 18.3 that should be available now for Mac, but not yet.

Fiddled with my VM and found out that 18.4 has not yet been released even as the latest installer package in the My F-Secure account. Asked the support and they only had basic info " around the corner " for the release. 🤷‍♂️
