Now that Oreo has been rolled out - where are the security updates? Update Roadmap?

Good Day,


So, now that the Moto Z has received the Official Oreo 8.0 update, i am wondering what has happened to the security updates that were so diligently pushed out in the Nougat era on a monthly basis?


According to the software update site on Motorola Support:

"Security updates

This product is scheduled to continue to receive security updates.

Android security patches are included in all new Moto software updates, including Operating System upgrades, Maintenance Releases, and Security Maintenance Releases.

Users on  KitKat 4.4.4 or later OS versions can find their Android security patch level in Settings ->About Phone -> Android security patch level"


This does not seem to be the case, as the device is still on March 2018 security update...


I am also curious about the Update roadmap for the device? I am greatful we did get Oreo, however it was released when 8.1 was already and most devices where receiving those updates.  I have noticed that the G5S is now in soak test for 8.1 Oreo, as they will be skipping 8.0 and moving straight to 8.1.
