macOS DisplayLink USB Graphics Software v4.3 and 5.0 Beta
(FYI: On Sept. 24th they posted a non-beta v5.0 for macOS Mojave.)
New DisplayLink macOS USB Software releases dated Sept. 12th. Here's their updated info (black box) on the mac downloads page:
"Important Information about macOS 10.13.4 and later
DisplayLink has worked for many months to maintain support for its users during the transition from macOS High Sierra to Mojave. While functionality such as Ethernet and audio or charging, where implemented, is unaffected on all releases, display connectivity has been limited on macOS releases from 10.13.4 through 10.13.6.

Users with access to Apple 10.14 Mojave previews released since 30th July confirmed full support was restored for multiple extended DisplayLink displays. We are doing wide scale testing of the v5.0 beta below against current and upcoming previews to release v5.0 upon general availability of 10.14.

Users of 10.13.4-10.13.6 should use v4.3 as it contains a workaround to enable one extended USB display (now with additional resolutions available). An FAQ ("How to enable an extended DisplayLink display on macOS 10.13.4-10.13.6 with v4.3") details how to enable Apple AirPlay with DisplayLink display for extend or mirror mode."

Download pages for DisplayLink USB Graphics Software v4.3 for macOS 10.13 to OS X 10.11 and v5.0 Beta for macOS Mojave. (See above for non-beta v5.0 driver for Mojave.)
