Amazon has set a software update to go directly to the current line of Kindle Fire tablets
-- I noticed that mine was being received and installed today, August 15, 2014. It suddenly turned on and did the update. This will be true for most owners of these tablets.
The update hasn't been announced in the forums, possibly because it's considered a minor update. Amazon's wording at the software update pages:
"The software update includes general improvements and performance enhancements."
Here are the Current and Latest Update versions (August 2014)
and the Update pages for those wanting or needing to manually install the updates:
Kindle Fire HD 7" 2nd Gen - Update page
Kindle Fire HDX 7" - Update page
Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" - Update page
