H1B 2018 quota

I read in some news paper recently that for 2018 h1b quota USCIS decided to accept the applications from 2016 October instead of 2017 April 1st. i this true?

Not true. H-1B cap will still open in April 2017 for employment start date of Oct 1, 2017.

Its not… they have done it on april 3rd 2018
