    i thought i was running public beta 4 (since august 8th), but the new PB shows up today (aug 14)... as "public beta 4". so is apple crazy, or is it me? (pretty sure i should know the answer to that...).

    I have been on Dev Beta 3,4,5. Now today Mac App Store wants to install PublicBeta 4. I wonder if this mess up is related. I'm not installing it.

    It shows up as beta developer 6 after you install it. It's safe!

    it's definitely a newer version, and am seeing some bug fixes. just not sure why it's listed as PB4, when last week's beta was also PB4...

    It's OK! The latest two public beta updates and the same as develop beta updates, it will show up as develop beta version 6 after you finish installing!

    not here, the 'About' window simply shows Version 10.13 Beta (17A344b). (which IS a higher number than last week...)

    EDIT: actually, yes, the app store shows "developer beta 6", making this public beta #?????.....

    Not a dev here but re-enrolled in PB last night and pulled PB4 which installed 17A344b.

    Yeah! The public beta and develop beta are exactly the same in the recent several updates except for the version number

    right, but still don't understand what the public beta# is. if the previous one was 'pb4', this should be 'pb5'... except apple lists it as 'pb4'. so... '4B'? '4 part 2'? '4 as it should have been previously'?

    just funny, ultimately. am trusting my mac, and my life (more or less) to a company that can count money, but not OS versions... :D
