Microsoft To Deliver Windows 10 19H2 as a Cumulative Update

Microsoft To Deliver Windows 10 19H2 as a Cumulative Update

In addition to the Insiders signed up with the Slow Ring, Windows 10 19H2 builds will also be delivered to Insiders via servicing as a Cumulative Update.

The changed rollout strategy for Windows 10 feature updates should have a positive impact on commercial and education customers.

MICROSOFT HAS finally started testing the next version of Windows 10 with its Insider Programme, giving us our first look at why on earth we've not seen it before.

"Even though we will be delivering 19H2 to Insiders in the Slow ring through servicing, we plan to continue to publish blog posts for each of these flights and include information on anything new and notable and any known issues that might be included", Microsoft noted.

The 19H2 update is a "scoped release with a smaller set of enhancements focused primarily on select performance improvements, enterprise features, and quality enhancements".

"It was a mistake under the Iran nuclear deal to allow Iran to enrich uranium at any level", the White House said in a statement. Still, Britain's commitment to the accord "relies on Iran complying with the full terms of the deal", James Slack told reporters.


In technical terms, that means that Windows 10 19H2 will be delivered as a Cumulative Update, and not as a typical full build update as we've seen in the past. Strangely enough, this comes just months after Microsoft promised to offer Windows 10 users more control, quality, and transparency.

Microsoft also mentioned that only one reboot will be required to update devices to 19H2. Each build will be deployed as a cumulative update-a patch, in other words, rather than an entirely new build. It is understood the plan has been created to unburden users and encourage them to migrate to the new Windows 10 version as soon as it becomes available. The Insider team has stated the update contains a couple of OEM-specific mods, but nothing else visible at this stage.

And now the 800million people that use Windows 10 have been put on alert about a surprise change with the Microsoft OS.

You may have already installed Microsoft's latest major update on your Windows device, but don't get your hopes up for any stellar features for the next major upgrade. They'll be deployed on a schedule, and some releases will have the features turned off and enabled later. So far, the most important new feature of the 20H1 release is probably the Windows Subsystem for Linux 2, with an actual Linux kernel inside.

It would remove a lot of burden from administrators if Microsoft would release the second feature update of any year in similar fashion going forward.
