To add a little more info, we do not do any other updates to UMLS content after we load the twice-yearly UMLS update. So BioPortal would still be based on the 2018AB release.

I’m writing to ask for more information on the version of MESH that is currently available in Bioportal.
The current version is 2018AB released on 11/5/2018 and uploaded on 4/29/2019. Could you tell me whether this version contains any 2019 updates since the release date 11/5/2018 or whether it only contains the data available on that date?
We obtain MeSH content via the UMLS Metathesaurus , released twice per year by the National Library of Medicine.
2018AB refers to the UMLS release in the latter part of last year. According to their metadata for MeSH , UMLS 2018AB contains MeSH version "MSH2019_2018_07_31”.
You would need to contact the ontology maintainers to find our what they included in that release number. Contact information is available at the link I provided below .
