Not sure about these guys at MacUpdate. Same kinda thing with Skype today too. Their Version Numbers don't jibe at all.

And there's a New Version of Safari for Sierra and it's not here.

I updated the version number for the macOS 10.13.4
Supplemental Update listing. As for Skype, we have updated it and the Safari update doesn't have individual download links that we're able to find right now. if you have them, please let us know and we can update the lisitng to make it current.

You posted a half star review in which you just ask a question?!?

I never experienced "sleep wake failure" with any High Sierra update including 10.13.3 Supl. 1.0, so may be that problem is unique to some configurations. I have sudden shutdown problems on wake up only when I plug certain power adapters i.e a power adapter of Oyen Digital external HDD case or Repotec USB hub. As soon as I remove these power adapters, sleep/wake problems disappear. Machine just shutdowns without any trace in system.log.

However, I still experience just the opposite to your problem. Since I updated to High Sierra, I can't put my machine to sleep. If I select "Sleep", it wakes immediately, so I have to select "Sleep" 2-4 times. The culprit in most cases is "SafariBookmarksSyncAgent" which tries to sync something, even if I don't use Safari. (I check which app prevents sleep by "pmset -g assertions" command in Terminal)

I have had many problems getting my imac to sleep. It wakes after a second or two. Sometimes a few tries will work. Today - no luck. I saw the post below and opened Activity Monitor and stopped "SafariBookmarksSyncAgent". That seems to work for now. I am hoping for a better solution.

Here is a very thorough discussion at Arstechnica, of not just Meltdown, but Spectre mitigation impact on performance, across Windows, macOS, Linux. I'm posting this comment because recent updates for macOS include (so it is said) patches for Meltdown and Spectre. The article goes a little more in depth on how impact can be different depending not only OS, but generation of CPU (older CPUs are impacted more than newer ---lake processors. And surprise, how AMD Zen architecture is less impacted than Intel (by happenstance, not because of brilliant forward thinking on AMD's part). Also, significant difference in discussion of Meltdown vs Spectre patches. The impact of Spectre patches seems to be more significant than Meltdown, particularly for I/O intensive situations. Most of us 'typical' desktop users, won't see much effect from either Spectre or Meltdown patches, but Sys Admins and IT guys running servers definitely have been impacted. And if you run Linux (and a lot of Mac guys also use Linux), the impact of patches is quite significant, according to numerous reports. What I have yet to read or have explained to me is why macOS , which is a 'nix/kernel based OS like Linux, doesn't APPEAR to be as effected as some of the Linux variants are claiming they are (Red Hat says up to 20% per the article). https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2018/01/heres-how-and-why-the-spectre-and-meltdown-patches-will-hurt-performance/

I have a problem with the Supplemental Update here. The process finishes, and my machine restarts, only to have a notification pop up that states all items were NOT installed, giving me a choice between 'details" and "install", either of which do nothing. No response from Apple...???

I may have found the issue solved. I restarted in Safe Mode and the system seemed to take the update without the dreaded notification. However, the version of Safari is still not updated, even though I installed it from MacUpdate separately. Is anyone else still having this issue? Concerned that this fix will not fix enough of Intel's witchery!

No. It will appear as an available update in the Mac App Store app, which you are hopefully checking regularly. Notifications of available updates will appear under the  (Apple) Menu after 'App Store...'. The link on the page here at MU leads directly to the Apple security document for the 10.13.2 Supplemental Update.

HS is suppose to be a "maintenance" upgrade, but the feeling is that its less stable than before. My MBP 2013 (16Gmem, Intel 2.7GHz, 500G flash drive) usually works neatly and fast (aside from LaTeX related stuff all programs are from the store). Somehow there are lots of glitches, particularly with the MAP application that keep on quitting all the time. I'm not happy with this maintenance version.

Disaster for me. I upgraded 2 MacBook Pros (2015). The Supp Update wiped out ALL the login items for the admin accounts on both. Furthermore, on my main laptop bootup took 5 minutes (every time), Mail locked up after a period of being minimised, and High Sierra crashed and rebooted every night during sleep. I reinstalled the original High Sierra 10.13 and all is well again (apart from obviously my passwords being exposed to physical visitors to the laptop).

Hello Norseman. Yes you can safely restore just one file, then reboot and all should be OK. The file you want is: /Users/<YOURUSERNAME>/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginitems.plist

OK, apart from the deleted Login Items I have fixed all other apparent problems by going through system Library directories and removing an old Wacom driver, then all LaunchItems and LaunchDaemons from incompatible Micromat and Prosoft Engineering utilities. Has been stable now for a few days.

This is a strange one. I put it on at home on a 2014 Retina iMac and it killed Parallels Pro 13's networking (I used Bridged Wifi). - I had to switch it to Shared Networking. I put it on at work on a 2013 iMac and it seemed okay. Then it show up again and I put it on again, and it essentially killed my 1TB fusion drive (I'm still trying to delete the encrypted Logical Volume Group so I can rebuild the fusion drive). Now it's showing up on the Retina iMac again (fear and trepidation).
