C18 (C standard revision)
C18 is the informal name for ISO/IEC 9899:2018, the most recent standard for the C programming language, published in June 2018. It replaced C11 (standard ISO/IEC 9899:2011). It has been informally named as C17 too.
C18 will be superseded by C2x.

C18 addressed defects in C11 without introducing new language features.
__STDC_VERSION__ macro is increased to the value
C18 is a “bugfix release” of the C standard. Whereas the intention of the C working group (WG14) has been that this release does not introduce normative changes (but one), it brings a lot of clarifications all over the place. By adopting this version, some features as implemented by some compilers may change if their interpretation of C11 was different because of an unfortunate ambiguity.
