Pretty sure that LOS Official doesn't announce new versions until the end of March/beginning of April. That's at least what it has been for 16 and 17 the past couple of times. Keep an eye out on https://lineageos.org for any updates.

I just installed the new OTA update, which is my 2nd update. It looks like magisk does persist in a given slot. So when I first installed LOS, I installed magisk. When I installed my first OTA update, I had to install it again (other slot), although my modules persisted. When I installed my second update just now (back to the first slot), I did NOT have to install magisk again. So in summary it seems you have to install magisk once per slot and then you're gtg from then on.I just did my first OTA update today and Magisk+Modules did not carry over to the other slot. They were originally installed on Slot B, but when the device switched to A, it wasn't installed. That goes for all of my boot image mods, like TWRP. It was replaced with the stock LineageOS recovery. I don't know if it will do the same thing on another OTA update that switches the slot again, but we will have to see what happens next week.
That's weird, at first I thought 17 had it, then it disappeared, I upgraded to 18, it did get volte, then downgraded back to 17 and the option in setting doesn't have volte. But speaking of volte I need to upgrade to get that back it'd a nice feature to not lose data when my phone rings. Was there an extra step or something I needed to flash to get volte on 17? I haven't reflashed in so long I actually forgot.

I had the same issue. It's not the size of the partition, its the order the software is installed and the reboots done during the process. I joined the telegram group for the G7 and found some very helpful information related to the installation of LineageOS 16.0 on the G7. Here are the steps for a clean flash.
Very important - Flash the copy-partitionsAB.zip to replicate the slot A and slot B layout.
- Clean flash:
1) Put the phone in bootloader mode
1.2) Connect phone to PC with a USB cable.
1.3) In a Command prompt window, run "fastboot getvar all".
1.4) Make slot A the active slot "fastboot set_active a".
1.5) Boot TWRP "fastboot boot twrp.img" (use the file name on your PC for the TWRP img file)
1.6) check active slot in Reboot menu - set to A
2) Flash lineage zip
3) Flash twrp installer zip
3.5) Format data while in TWRP.
4) Reboot to bootloader from TWRP.
5) fastboot -w (this will wipe your userdata partition)
6) Reboot to TWRP recovery (it should be installed when you flashed the twrp-installer zip)
6.5) check active slot in Reboot menu - set to A
7) Flash opengapps zip (use the arm64 version)
7.5) Flash magisk zip (optional, only if you want root)
8) Reboot system on slot A
The G7 is my first A/B slot device and I struggled with the configuration. TWRP recovery is part of the boot partition. Installing the lineage zip, then the TWRP installer zip seems to be the required order. Then, rebooting TWRP from the installed image works to install OpenGApps. The active slot is very important, too. Many times during my installation ordeal, I would think that slot a was active, but it was slot b. I installed the copy-partitions zip when we were made aware of no bootloader on slot b a few weeks ago.
