I hope this fixes the problem of "share" within Preview, Quicktime to Photos. Because when I tap "Share" and select "Photos" Nothing happens. Both to my iMac and MacBook Air that I just bought in 2017.

Delayed release suggests the final build of macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 was subjected to additional last minute security testing.

I am hoping infamous December 2, 2017 bug is fixed, which on macOS High Sierra triggers less severe "Month 13 is out of bounds" error every dozen milliseconds or so.

I was looking for USB devices and got excited for a second then saw the audio. I guess Apple has no time fixing external hdd ejecting when my iMac goes to sleep. When I wake-up my Mac there were like over 10 warnings saying I didn’t eject my hard drive properly. SMH!

-Does it also fix my 10.13.1 from crashing when I open a large png's?
-Does it also fix the image retention on my 3k$ iMac from 2013 which all of the sudden has returned?
-Does it also fix APFS not being able to work with Fusion drives?
-Does it also fix Filefault from being totally sh**ty under 10.13 with fusion drives?

*I’m not one to whine about Apple, like some. I’ve been a huge fan since 2002… But 10.13 is a sh*tshow on my late 2012 iMac.

How about improvements to the way it handles 3rd party USBC displays mainly the LG Display they've been pushing people to. Right now I can't yet recommend it to other people. It crashes my machine greater than 50% of the time.

The update clocks in at 1.66GB on my 2013 macbook pro running 10.13.1 which suggests there are more bug/security fixes than the three outlined in the notes.

I have a 2012 Mac Mini Server with the stock 2x1TB drives configured for RAID1. macOS sierra supports this configuration but it seems High Sierra 10.13.0 and 10.13.1 do not. The sparse release notes for this version do not indicate that has changed :-(

This is not fixed on the first computer I updated.

Did you file a bug report? Apple may not ever discover it unless you do. http://www.Apple.com/feedback lets you submit them.

I use USB audio devices and have never had a problem with them, but no harm in improving the way they work.

Here’s something that bugs me though: opening the lid is supposed to start up my laptop, but sometimes it just doesn’t. I end up having to use the power button, like a caveman. Any fix for this?
