Because of a temporary misconfiguration of the unstable builds, it is possible that you are not getting updates automatically any longer for the unstable builds.
This is caused by a tightening of the certificate check when using the internal updater, which is needed in this day and age where anyone and their dog can get a valid SSL certificate mis-issued on domains ({{snide remark about Let's Encrypt! removed}}). The flag to check was enabled before the credentials to check were updated, and a build was triggered in-between those two commits.

Please check if you are being offered updates (help -> about) if your build date is 2017-09-02 or before. If not, go into about:config, and temporarily set app.update.cert.checkAttributes to false, get today's update, then set it back to true.

So, this is the latest change on internal updater codebase?

It's the most recent change made to the internal updater system, yes. Why do you ask?
