Apple today seeded the first beta of an upcoming macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 update to developers, less than one week after releasing the macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 update, the second major update to the macOS High Sierra operating system.

The macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 beta can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center or through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store with the proper profile installed.

It's not yet clear what improvements the third update to macOS High Sierra will bring, but it's likely to include bug fixes and performance improvements for issues that weren't addressed in macOS High Sierra 10.13.2.

The previous macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 update focused solely on security fixes and performance improvements, with no outward-facing changes introduced.

Update: Apple has also seeded the macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 update to public beta testers.

apple is moving too fast , that's why we are getting all these bugs, focus more on stability and who cares how long it takes, yearly release not cool anymore, stay with the same os at least 2 or 3 years, not falling for it anymore, I'm not joining the hype bandwagon

Mac Pro 5,1 does not wake from sleep and fan runs constantly high with AMD Vega graphics card installed. This has been an issue since 10.13.2 beta 1 and it still has not been fixed with this release (build 17D20a).

did they fix the pause/play buttons playing/pausing the wrong media yet...

That isn't a bug. High Sierra was programmed to control whatever media is currently "active". If iTunes is the only program active, it will control iTunes. If you have a YouTube video playing, it will control YouTube. There is a program that will revert back to the Sierra way of controlling iTunes.

Yeah, it's annoying. The 10.x versions are always quite large updates that break a lot of third-party stuff and introduce bugs. I'm mainly sick of all my software breaking every single year. Like, great, I just can't use my Photoshop anymore... why the **** did I update. Oh, to use the new Xcode and to have the small security fixes.

FWIW, average delay between major releases in macOS between Jaguar (first 'serious' release) and Mountain Lion was 565 days, average since Mavericks is 378 days. That's about six months' more developing/testing during the 'Big Cat' releases than the 'Woa Dude, California' releases.
