macOS Ventura 13.2.1 is here with bug fixes and improvements
After some confusion, Apple has released macOS Ventura 13.2.1 to Mac users with bug fixes and performance improvements.
Apple released the previous public update for macOS Ventura on January 23. It added support for physical security keys and the Rapid Security Response System for urgent security fixes.
Users can now update to macOS Ventura 13.2.1, though it isn't clear if this update contains any new user-facing features. Instead, it appears only to include the usual bug fixes and performance improvements.
The 13.2.1 update carries build number 22D68.
Apple hasn't yet begun the next beta testing cycle for macOS Ventura 13.3. The previous cycle ended on January 10.
How to update to macOS Ventura 13.2.1
Users with automatic updates enabled don't have to do anything, as macOS Ventura 13.2.1 will automatically install at some point in the next day or so. Those who want to install the update sooner can do so manually.

The update availability has been confirmed by Apple's website listing releases. It follows 45 minutes of Apple posting releases to the beta content delivery network and vice versa. As of 1:49 PM ET, everything has been sorted out.
