If you're referring to setting up POV-Ray, then yes: The POV-Ray 3.6 
instructions how to identify the proper Display_Gamma setting for your 
system are still valid for 3.7.

If you're referring to setting up your image viewer / operating system / 
  graphics driver / display hardware, you will have to check out the 
respective manuals and/or them interwebs.

Usually your graphics card will have come with /some/ tool to check and 
adjust your display gamma to whatever the operating system typically 
expects, and most image viewers will rely on the operating system and 
drivers for converting from the OS' standard gamma to the display 
hardware gamma.

On a properly calibrated Windows PC, following the instructions to set 
up your Display_Gamma should usually give you a setting of 2.2.
