"macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 Supplemental Update for MacBook Pro (2018)
The macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 Supplemental Update improves the stability and reliability of MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (2018) computers and is recommended for all users."
Earlier I saw Apple's Developer releases list macOS 10.13.6 Build 17G2208/15P6703. I hear these builds are for new 2018 MacBook Pro models to fix the 'throttling' (mentioned in an earlier Geekbench blog post) with the 8th gen Core CPUs. (The original public release of 10.13.6 was build 17G65 on July 9th.)
Some performance enhancements added to the previous version of CCC could occasionally lead to errors affecting tasks that specify a remote Macintosh source. This update modifies those performance enhancements to avoid those errors.
Errors related to being unable to access Apple-private folders in the user home folder are now suppressed.
Fixed a crashing issue that occurs when clicking on the source or destination selector. This only affects El Capitan users when VoiceOver is enabled.
Added an option to the 'ccc' command-line utility to print schedule information in CSV format.
(For info on changes in CCC v5.1.3 update, see July 20th news.)
