  • Microsoft issues new cumulative updates for Windows 10 1803 and 1809

    Posted on May 21st, 2019 at 15:02 PKCano Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    On Tuesday, May 21, Microsoft released Cumulative updates for Windows 10 v1803 and v1809.

    v 1803 KB 4499183 Build 17134.799
    v 1809 KB 4497934 Build 17763.529

    Starting with update [KB4499183 and KB4497934], we are introducing functionality that allows you to decide when to install a feature update. You control when you get a feature update while simultaneously keeping your devices up to date. Feature updates that are available for eligible devices will appear in a separate module on the Windows Update page (Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update). If you would like to get an available update right away, select Download and install now. To find out more about this feature, please go to this blog.

    When Windows 10 devices are at, or within several months of reaching, end of service, Windows Update will begin to automatically initiate a feature update. This keeps those devices supported and receiving the monthly updates that are critical to device security and ecosystem health.

    The changes to v1803 and v1809 will be available in the June Patch Tuesday updates.
    These Cumulative Updates are Previews. You don’t need to install them.

  • Patch Lady – 1903 is now officially released

    Fasten your seatbelts, here we go.  It’s official 1903 is now out.

    We already have known issues that are being tracked.

    Remember to be on Pro, set a deferral for feature updates.

    Now then if you WANT 1903 (well because you write about updates or love to live on the edge) you may not get it via “check for updates” as this is the period of time that Microsoft throttles updates and only offers them up to machines that are deemed worthy – and ready for them.

    Also we have YAOU – yet another optional update – as the “C” week releases are also out.  Skip on installing them at this time – they should only be offered up to “seekers”.
