Apple Releases macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 With Compatibility Improvements for Third-Party USB Audio Devices

....Apple today released macOS High Sierra 10.13.2, the second update for the macOS High Sierra operating system available for Apple's Macs. macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 comes a little over a month after the release of macOS High Sierra 10.13.1, the first update to High Sierra.

macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 can be downloaded directly from the Mac App Store or through the Software Update function in the Mac App Store on all compatible Macs that are already running macOS High Sierra.

No major outward-facing changes were found in macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 during the beta testing period, but according to Apple's release notes, it offers security and feature improvements. The update improves compatibility with third-party USB audio devices, it introduces better VoiceOver navigation when viewing PDF documents in Preview, and it improves the compatibility of Braille displays with Mail.

The macOS High Sierra 10.13.2 update improves the stability, compatibility, and security of your Mac, and is recommended for all users.

This update:

- Improves compatibility with certain third-party USB audio devices
- Improves VoiceOver navigation when viewing PDF documents in Preview
- Improves compatibility of Braille displays with Mail

I'm sticking with Sierra for now. The new file system has me a bit skittish.

I just installed the new El Cap Security Update 2017 005 and Safari 11.0.2 so staying with El Cap until I file taxes. Have Sierra installed on an external drive and right now it doesn't seem to offer much and High Sierra file system worries me,

Does anyone know whether Apple included the root/passwordless authentication bug that they put out an emergency update for in 10.13/10.13.1 - but which would get regressed if one applied it then upgraded to 10.13.1?

Because if they did NOT include fix integral to 10.13.2 then whoever's in charge of their QA should be looking for a new position; or whoever would be responsible for approving shipping a new OS build with a bug like this known to be included.

Given Apple's recent track history I wouldn't touch High Sierra with a 10ft pole.

Obviously I meant fix for the bug... and yes, it is apparently included in 10.13.2 (but not in 10.13.1 because it would be too much work for Apple with all the money in the world to recompile a new build of the OS to replace one buggy library's "logic error.")

I've had no issues with High Sierra (10.13.1) on a late 2011 MB Pro, but assume that this update doesn't affect me, as it doesn't show up in software updates.

I'm staying with Sierra a while too. Plus, my 128 GB drive is almost full. Mistake by getting 128!
