    Let's hope they finally start supporting ALL Radeon and nVidia products as eGPUs- without kernel extension hacks!

    That doesn't appear to be included at present.

    "[...] with the last full release of High Sierra having build number 17C88."

    Well, you are right if the update is made through the App Store or the macOS 10.13.2 Delta update file.

    If you update with the Combo file, the build number will be 17C89.

    Does anyone know why?

    Booting from APFS external disks? APFS-formatted Time Machine disks?

    I've been in the Public Beta Tester Program for a while. This morning (12/13, 9:40 am est) I checked the App Store and an update labeled MacOS High Sierra 10.13.3 Developer Beta 1 was available for downloading. I installed it and all is well. It's version 17D20a. Who knows, maybe I was unknowingly promoted from Public Beta Tester to Developer Beta Tester status. More likely, Apple just forgot to rename the beta when it was released to Public Beta Testers.
