Latest XPS 9550 BIOS Update Documentation

Talk about confusing. I looked at the latest BIOS update documentation and this is what it says:

 Title: Dell XPS 15 9550 1.2.15 A16 System BIOS

 Subtitle: XPS 15 9550 1.2.18 BIOS

 Version: 01.02.17, 01.02.17

 File Name: XPS_9550_1.2.18.exe

I assume everything should say 18?

What the Dell is up with the BIOS Updates?

About a week ago there was a BIOS update for my XPS 15 (it also applied to other systems). The documentation for it was a mess. It was indicated as either version 15, 16, 17, or 18 depending on which line you read. The .exe was "XPS_9550_1.2.18.exe". That no longer appears in the list of updates. Has this been withdrawn?  I have not yet applied it. Should I hold off?

Well I see a new v18 has been released that apparently fixes a boatload of things. Thank you Dell.

Apparently it is the same file that was released a week ago, it was just that the documentation was messed up.

RE: Latest XPS 9550 BIOS Update Documentation

I guess they fixed it. Every reference shows 1.2.18 =
