The items listed within this single post will also be within the UBB.threads 7.6.1 release.

Your Dashboard will display which build version you are currently running. "Release 20170223" is displayed as the second item under the "Server Information" column.
If you've downloaded the installation package between 2017-02-15 and midnight on 2017-02-23, you should download the "13-ubbthreads-7-6-0p2.zip" patch from the Member Area and replace (copy over) just the files on your forum with the files from that archive. Your Dashboard should now display "Release 20170223" under the "Server Information" column. After doing that, there is nothing more that you need to do, other than update your forum software to UBB.threads 7.6.1 (when released) as you normally would.
If you've downloaded the installation package after midnight on 2017-02-23, you already have these fixes. There is nothing more that you need to do, other than update your forum software to UBB.threads 7.6.1 (when released) as you normally would.

I installed version 7.6.0 on 2/19/2017, prior to the refresh version.

Do I download the Release Package from the downloads area dated February 15, 2017 and do a reinstall?

Or just manually replace the files in the directories other than install?

Or are the issues so unnoticeable that I should just wait for 7.6.1?

Currently, the forum is working quite well.

Thanks!

Yes, the file in the member area is what you want to install, the date on the file is the initial release date.

Replace the files like you where doing an upgrade, taking care not to overwrite any files that the upgrade docs say not to.
https://www.ubbwiki.com/article/view/4/upgrade-guide.html#within7

You'll probably notice some of the bugs, if you don't run the latest files, and unless you customized your files, it shouldn't take much time.
