At the places, where many got their newer versions updates in this release, httpd is still in the version 2.2.31 (Upgraded from last version 2.2.29) instead of getting the latest 2.4.
Well, uhm! According to the release announcement the next version will get in the next release. Alright(?) I hope you have good patience to wait for next release or you should look ways to get the latest one for sure.
Here what the release announcement states about httpd,
We still keep httpd-2.2.31 as our default server, but we moved to php-5.6.26 since phpmyadmin needed it andSo, if you are on the previous version then make an upgrade as per your need.
beside that php-5.4. reach its EOL, so mind the new /etc/httpd/php.ini if you are upgrading.
Most likely on our next release we will switch to httpd-2.4 as our default server, so you better look for migration tips.
httpd-2.4 is at testing as usual for those who switched already.
