Airport Express (802.11N) Firmware Update adds AirPlay 2 Support
Apple's released a firmware update for the 802.11N Airport Express to add AirPlay 2 support. The how to update AirPort base station firmware article lists firmware version 7.8 with this info:
"About AirPort Base Station Firmware Update 7.8 Information
Firmware update 7.8 adds AirPlay 2 support to 802.11n AirPort Express base stations."
(Date on firmware 7.8 page has been corrected.)
macOS 10.13.6 Supplemental Update 2 for 2018 MacBook Pros (w/Touch Bar)
This 'supplemental' update is available via software update for those models (only) or this download page which lists the same info as the first supplemental update:
"macOS 10.13.6 Supplemental Update 2 for MacBook Pro (2018) (1.3 GB)
The macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 Supplemental Update 2 improves the stability and reliability of MacBook Pro with Touch Bar (2018) computers, and is recommended for all users."

(My earlier comment follows, before Apple posted the update download page.)
I saw Apple's Developer releases list new macOS 10.13.6 Builds 17G2307 & 15P6805, so assumed another update for 2018 MBPs. (The late July Supplemental update for 2018 MacBook Pros was posted shortly after the Developer page listed 10.13.6 builds 17G2208/15P6703. Although not mentioned on the download page, thought to be an attempt to fix throttling issues with some 8th gen Core CPUs.)
