Updates all the URLs in the database to point to the new URL when making your site live or changing domains.
Under the Tools menu in the dashboard there will be a "Go Live" link.
Some plugins will store the data in the database serialized which does not allow for easy updating of the data. You may un-check tables used by such plugins to avoid breakage and then update the urls manually for those plugins. Currently the options, postmeta, usermeta, commentmeta, and sitemeta tables are serialization safe.
Most tables will be just fine to update. You may make a backup of your database, run this on all tables and if you run into trouble, restore your database, un-check tables in sections, and rerun this until you find the culprit. If you find you are running into issues often with custom table you may want to check out the Pro version of this plugin which works with any table.
