Maintenance Release for the Week of 25 March 2018

Welcome to the fifth maintenance release of 2018! If this is your first time getting an update from us, maintenance releases are smaller updates between major releases, and are mostly comprised of bug fixes, tweaks, and small (but meaningful!) improvements.
