Mine is 16.4.5 and in very rare cases WPF designer crashes, taking VS to the hell.
I wouldn't expect too much from VS team - they are mediocres hired for food. Developers at MS degraded for years, so be careful with every update.
Do you have older versions of VS installed in parallel? I sometimes had problems when I just updated VS 2019 and not VS2017 or VS2015 on dev. machines, mostly not with VS itself, but with installed extensions/plugins.
I am required to keep patches up-to-date on all of my tools, so I update within a few days of a new update becoming available. I've had no problems with VS2019 being unstable. Maybe it's an extension that you use that combines with the update to cause problems?
That's what I'm thinking. I used to use GhostDoc religiously but it progressively became more bloated, unstable and froze up VS, so that's gone. I'm suspecting one of the other (very few) add ins I use are the issue.
It's a real shame that software, like cars, always seems to get bigger and bulkier, and rarely smaller, faster and more efficient.
I have found no issues with the latest VS2019 update. It is very stable except for not always opening the last project worked on at startup.

I used to call developers bunnies. There were lots of them, they were young, and they needed to be shielded from various forms of BS. Eventually someone found it offensive, so that was the end of that.
