Anyone else got weird font issues?
Like render issues, it's hard to explain. Sometimes it looks like you write in Rainbow colors.
Yes! It sounds like we are having the same problem. I posted about this on the last page;

I am noticing odd display issues with my RX 580, there's something really off with the font rendering if I use displayport to my U2515H, but it's fine if I use HDMI. It looks like there's some sort of distortion to fonts, and it's very hard to describe.

I don't notice it in Mojave on the public beta (maybe because subpixel AA is gone?).

I have no other problems though, the update was smooth, I'm using Clover 4586.
What monitor/connector are you using?

Confirmed. This seems to be a new security measure introduced in 10.13.6.

It does make sense though, because a normal user would otherwise be able to place a malicious payload on the EFI partition.
I guess this is Apple's approach to close that hole.

Clover Configurator is affected by the same problem, I guess the author will update it soon.
Clover has been updated new version v.5131

Figured this out.
I am using MacPro name and there is a patch for TyMCED kext to avoid kernel panics.
Seems that this patch is not working anymore - TyMCED is a reason for KP in my rig
Boot with -nehalem_error_disable

All OK here.

I'm on a iMac 14,2 build, I generated the latest firmware version number and date and manually updated my config.plist in CC as a safeguard against getting a "firmware update required" error I noticed some have seen. I do not know if this was an essential step, I just did it to save myself any bother just in case. The firmware version I was using, was slightly out of date (2017).

I uninstalled my Nvidia Webdrivers before running a standard upgrade from App Store, then simply installed the newest after the upgrade completed. Time machine is now backing up and I'll CCC the drive later.

I am still on Clover 4533 and HFS. Everything is still working golden.

I could really use some advice on the newer versions of Clover and changes there and if I should be thinking about making alterations already for good practice in 10.13.6 and in prep for beta test on 10.14.

If someone could point me in the right direction on that, I would appreciate it.

Thanks in advance as ever, for everything.
