Kernel 4.17-rc1 has been released, and brief details are here: http://lkml.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/1804.1/06654.html
With the latest code-on-git milestone reached, there is speculation that a version bump to 5.x might be a possibility – but not just yet!
The latest NVIDIA driver (396.18) and VMware (14.1.1 – vmmon and vmnet) all compile OK..
