We provide support for Visual Composer and whenever a visual composer update is available, we will download the latest version test it against our theme and bundle it as a theme update. So updating the theme will get you the latest version of Visual Composer.
Once you had updated your theme, you will have to navigate to Appearance > Plugins > Visual Composer and de-activate and delete the existing version. Once you have deleted all the Visual Composer files, you will be prompted again to install Visual Composer. This time you can install the latest version from the theme.
The same applies for Slider Revolution too.
