Microsoft released Windows 10 May 2019 Update half an hour ago. Quoting official Windows blog:
How to get the Windows 10 May 2019 Update
Beginning today, the May 2019 Update is available for customers who would like to install the latest release. If you are ready to install the update, open your Windows Update settings (Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update) and select Check for updates. Once the update appears, you can select Download and install now. (Note: You may not see Download and install now on your device as we are slowly throttling up this availability, while we carefully monitor data and feedback). Once the download is complete and the update is ready to install, we’ll notify you so that you can pick the right time to finish the installation and reboot, ensuring the update does not disrupt you. This new ‘Download and install now’ capability is available for devices running Windows 10, version 1803 or version 1809 that also have the May 21st updates (or later) installed.
Less hassle. More control.
The Windows 10 May 2019 Update is rolling out today with a new look. Check out the streamlined and simplified way to do more. #DoGreatThings

On Ten Forums, you will find a complete list of all changes and new features in May 2019 Update.
Those users not ready to upgrade at the moment, remember not to click Check Updates and, instead go to Settings > Update & Security, and select Pause updates:
This allows you to pause updates for 7 days. Close to end of that period, you can pause again. On the other hand, if you must have it RIGHT NOW, use the Update Assistant at the Download Windows 10 page to “Update Now!”
OK, geeks, let’s update! The May 2019 Update is really stable, with no notable known issues.
