The Department of State (DOS) released the April 2018 Visa Bulletin and it brought happiness to many and sadness to others. For those from China and India in the EB1 category, you have retrogressed back to 2012 and the expectation is that you will not likely move forward until October (the new fiscal year). For those from the Philippines in EB3, you jumped forward 7 months and China EB2 and EB3 moved forward 8 and 6 mos. respectively.
