Apple has released macOS High Sierra.

macOS High Sierra is designed to improve on the previous macOS Sierra operating system with some major under-the-hood upgrades and a handful of outward-facing changes.

Apple File System (APFS), a file system designed for solid state drives, is the new default for these drives in macOS High Sierra. APFS is safe, secure, and optimized for modern storage systems. It features native encryption, safe document saves, stable snapshots, and crash protection, plus it brings performance improvements.

An interesting new feature in high Sierra that was only recently unveiled: the new version of macOS checks your Mac's firmware against Apple's own database once a week to see if it's been tampered with.

I must agree about the graphics issues. It's really odd, since the problems started around the Lion time, with the elusive disappearing pointer, to random laptop HDCP issues. The latter got fixed, the former happened up until 10.11, and I have not left my systems without a reboot for long since graphics issues started popping up.

It's odd since they should have at least their graphical systems running solid for Intel GPUs, while I can understand them having issues with their constant swap between nVidia and AMD GPUs on their systems.

I have not yet used the latest and greatest gold master for a long time to be able to point any issues with graphics, but I will be giving it quite the look this quarter.
