This marks the nineteenth(!!) maintenance release in the 2.83 LTS series, bringing the total number of fixes since the original release to more than 300 so far. The 2.83 LTS program is expected to be maintained for a few more months before being EOL'ed before the end of the year.
In other words, if you prefer stability over new features, and don't really *need* the latest-bleeding edge stuff, Blender LTS is for you. Every year a new LTS, with bugfix releases periodically for up to 2 years.
If you're a hobbyist, using the latest release is totally fine.

Blender's LTS program runs alongside the regular Blender releases (Blender 3.1 has been released a few weeks ago), and provides long-term support in the form of a stable version of Blender to allow studios and individuals to finish big productions without having to swap versions to benefit from bug updates.
