I'm speculating it'll get released early next week given two betas last week but none this week. I could be wrong but past experience suggests that it's waiting for something to happen for release. Maybe new iMacs?

macOS 10.14.4 will most likely be released 23/01, as 10.13.3 and 10.12.3 were also released 23/01.
I would assume that the 10.14.3 GM release would need to be released first since 10.14.3 Beta is the current version and not 10.14.4 as you predicted.

Nice catch on those release dates.

Well... it could be.
Four new Radeon v-cards drivers in last betas... says this:

It could means nothing; just support for new upcoming AMD cards to be used with MacMini and possible MacPro.

Would be good to hear from those who have installed already, how'd it go like ?

yeah it fixed.. but still not fast enough like old times. but at least a improvement
Um I'm not sure why yours is slow then. Mine boots up in 20-30 seconds. Depending on how many other portable USB drives I have currently connected. It's fast now.

Works if you have a single machine. With more that one Mac device, though, downloading the combo is a better practice.
In most cases, the combo updater is completely unnecessary and adds to the install time quite significantly. The delta updater is fine to use.

I'm on 10.14.1. Anyone with a 2018 Mac mini can confirm it doesn't break basic things like booting, external usb3 drives, Photos, etc.?

I can choose between downloading 1.97 GB on each of my Mac computers or downloading one single 2.1 GB file, putting it on my thumb drive, and using it on multiple computers.

The question whether doing this is a good idea or not is another matter, that I'll leave for you to decide.

Or you can just turn on content caching on one machine and let it serve the others.

I've just upgraded a new Macbook Air from factory 10.14.2 and all seemed to go smoothly, although it's early doors. Rebooted several times, all in all it took about 20 minutes (using cached content from another mac on the local network).

been reading on the other thread that there are some issues with this update(Boot looping, etc) for those who have the macbook pro, single machine, no combo, is the update process smooth? is the update still available someone posted that the update is no longer available?
