The new version has not been announced yet on the VideoLAN website, but it is only a matter of time before that happens. VLC Media Player users may download the update manually from the download server already. Once released officially, VLC instances may be updated using the built-in automatic updating functionality.

I now use VLC instead of the default media player in the Windows 11, because in the Dev channel, it was crashing a lot.
