Sony has the habit of releasing these incremental updates before releasing a major system software. They have yet to announce any major update in the near future for the PS4. Thye also usually hold a beta test before releasing the new firmware which hasn’t been the case so far.
Sony is already working on the next-generation of consoles and has shared the details on what they are planning to do with the PlayStation family. While they haven’t officially disclosed what they plan to call the next PlayStation, they are going to release it at some point after Q1 2020. It will also be backward compatible with PS4 so any user who purchases the next PlayStation can carry their games library to the PS5.
