macOS 10.13 High Sierra is the fourteenth version of macOS, and the follow up to macOS Sierra. Much like how OS X Snow Leopard was a refinement of OS X Leopard, macOS High Sierra is highly focused on refining macOS Sierra.

Yet the release does add some brand new features to the table. Noteworthy additions include external GPU support, which provides compatibility with VR headsets for the very first time, and Apple File System (APFS), which replaces the previous HFS+ file system.

Update: As some readers have pointed out, today’s release is a GM candidate. The difference here is that this current build of macOS has the potential to go onto being the final GM build, but that has yet to be determined.

Following the GM releases of iOS 11, tvOS 11, and watchOS 4, Apple is now seeding macOS High Sierra’s GM candidate to developers and public beta testers. macOS High Sierra includes the new Apple File System, HEVC video playback, Metal 2, Photos and Safari upgrades, and more. macOS High Sierra is set to release to the public later this month.
