ah; interesting that it shows up everywhere (the infamous red '1'), but nothing there for us poor public beta ppl... thx!

EDIT: just curious; are others on the public beta seeing an indication of an available update?

Tells me it's all up to date... using PB2 (build 18A326h)

EDIT: After running software update, it now has a red '1' in the System Preferences dock icon and the Software Update icon in the System Preferences pane...

Apple updated the version from 18A326g to 18A326h, hence everybody would see an update notification, it shows up on the Apple's developer website with a new release date as well being Jul, 10, 2018

The difference in the build numbers is the original Dev Beta 3 and the Public Beta 2. I dunno how you think everybody should see an update notification, as there is nothing to update to. It's a re-issue of Dev Beta 3, which should technically only appear on those with developer program subscriptions.

so, there's no difference with the "h" build and 18A326g?

There's not supposed to be... this is the way builds were labelled when High Sierra was in beta... there would be a single letter difference in between developer betas and public betas. My guess is this is just a bug in the change back to a separate software update mechanism for system/security updates.

right, but it shows up for me, and am only a (lowly) public beta person...

EDIT: 11july, 1020AM EST, and... apple has fixed this at their end. no red '1', no indication of a waiting update. now i can breathe easy, no longer taunted by a red 1....

I had DB 3... saw there was an update... it upgraded me from "g" to "h". "h" is what PB2 is. What I was suspecting, and maybe I'm wrong, is that it wanted to switch me over from dev program to public program as if the system knows I didn't have dev account. Thoughts???

apple's already fixed this (the notification is gone on both my macs), so am sure that's all it was; a dev update not meant for public beta users...

h for developers is actually a new developer build with the same build number as the current public beta. It fixes the feedback assistant.

Public beta testers got this before developers.

So apple just want to bring developers up to date with this.

It is unusual for public beta testers to get something before developers.

Most developers use bugreport.apple.com instead so it won’t really be a problem for most developers. You can skip it if you want and just wait for beta 4.

But it won’t change your program if you install it.
