    I’m just wondering if there will be a 10.13.6 or is High Sierra finished. I remember reading about 10.13.6 beta release, but I also read it’s been pulled.

    Anyone know?

    10.13.6 beta hasn't been pulled, but the problem is that when you enroll in the beta program, you get 10.14. I'm sure there will be a 10.13.6 and an iOS 11.4.1.

    Thanks for this, everything just went silent about HS refinements after announcement of Mojave. I’m really enjoying HS but I’m still seeing a finder bug with regards to aliases remaining even after a volume has been renamed, removed, erased, repartitioned, or replaced. Nothing would make it go away. I had to reinstall from my clone drive.

    I know it’s not a big problem, but I just couldn’t make it go away, so I’d like to see further refinement. Also in The file system before they close this version out from development.

    Things seemed to have come apart with Apple right around WWDC. Has anyone noticed the date of release of 10.13.5 on their downloads page? Showing Mar 29, 2018. Have pointed this out to Apple days ago and still not fixed. Sloppy work Apple

    As explained in the Keynote, the focus is on stability. So macOS 10.14 Mojave will be the refinement. As for aliases, if I am understanding the kind you mean, those are just a "shortcut" to somewhere that you created. If you rename, remove ...etc.. a volume and click on that alias afterward, you're not going to get anywhere. User created aliases need to be manually deleted.

    No, I didn’t create the alias.

    I plugged in a USB thumb drive and bang, the alias was created and wouldn’t go away. Looking in volumes directory (whether the USB drive was connected or not) revealed nothing.

    Searching the entire system revealed nothing. Clicking on the item in finder gave the option to “Fix” or “Remove Alias”. Neither of which worked. It was a word in a foreign language. Don’t remember the word, it’s not something I created.

    I thought it was associated with the thumb drive, but it must not have been, as all the actions above had no effect. I couldn’t find the actual alias to delete, only the finder sidebar showed the entry.

    I had to restore from an earlier cloned copy of the OS to fix the issue.

    I’m just trying to figure out WTH happened.

    I hope .5 is the end, I get nervous every time I update my hackintosh and unsupported Macs. Lol.

    Yes, I think we can count on a 10.13.6, for even though Mojave is suppose to be a “refined” version of High Sierra, High Sierra was “suppose” to be a refined version of Sierra....

    It was not UNTIL 10.13.5 that I Could trust High Sierra, meaning no outright obvious large bugs for overall useage. Apple will need to have a somewhat stable version of High Sierra before moving on to the next to gain some creditability back, especially with production users, so I expect a 10.13.6 and should work ok (I hope) until Mojave is stable.

    If Mojave is just High Sierra continued, than I will look forward to MacOS Movave, for it might not take too long to be a stable.

    This will be the first time in a long time that I look forward to the next OS....”if” it is somewhat stable with the first public release.
