• There they are… Second April patches are out and they look lame

    UPDATE: All the latest in Computerworld Woody on Windows.

    We waited an extra week and a half for this?

    Around 2:30 pm (Redmond time) on Thursday, Microsoft released a small bunch of patches:

    Win10 1803 patch KB 4493437 has a bunch of little “quality” (non-security) fixes, including lots of Japanese date bug fixes. The IE “Customer URI Schemes” bug introduced earlier has apparently been fixed. Both of the other acknowledged bugs are still there, including a Rename on a Cluster Shared Volume crashing the system.

    Win10 1709 patch KB 4493440 has a similarly lengthy list of little fixes, similar gaggle of Japanese bug fixes. 1709 is at end of service for Home and Pro (but not for Enterprise).

    Win 8.1 Monthly Rollup Preview KB 4493443 appears to consist entirely of Japanese date bug fixes. Notably, there’s no change in status for these patches and the previously identified antivirus bugs.

    Similarly, Win 7 Monthly Rollup Preview KB 4493453 only has Japanese date bug fixes. It, too, still has the old conflicts with the antivirus products.

    Nothing for 1809 – and I don’t see anything new coming out for 1903.

    Let’s see how they fare overnight.
