      We are now getting the Windows 10 November 2019 Update (19H2) ready for release. We believe that Build 18363.418 is the final build and we will continue to improve the overall experience of 19H2 on customers’ PCs as part of our normal servicing cadence. Build 18363.418 includes all of the latest 19H2 features as well as the latest fixes included as part of KB4517389. Windows Insiders in the Release Preview ring already have this build, so no action is needed from them to get this build.

      As we have communicated previously, the May 2019 Update (version 1903) and November 2019 Update (version 1909) share the same servicing content. That means they share the same Cumulative Update packages….

      Getting the November 2019 Update Ready for Release

      Anyone wishing to download : Feature update to Windows 10, version 1909 (18363.418) amd64

      If the May 2019 Update (1903) and November 2019 Update (1909) share the same servicing content and CUs, and 1903 is already considered “Ready for Business,” will it be safe to consider 1909 as “Ready for Business” by Microsoft’s standards?

        Good question. I’d give it a month (at least, even if you are in a hurry). If you have 1803, that’s probably a tough decision.

          If one has 1809 what is the most prudent action RE: 1903?  Upgrade now?  Or will it be possible to move directly to 1909 in the future?  Thank you.

            that would depend on what the device is used for..
            Mission critical: I’d be inclined to stick with 1809 and give 1903 a blast later once you’ve backed up your data.
            With 1909, it’s prudent to wait until Woody says so 😉

        the 1909/19H2 release may declared ready for “broad deployment” or “business ready” when the 2003/20H1 release is almost finalized around late March 2020 [hey the 1809/RS5 version was declared business ready by end of March 2019 by Microsoft]

      For those who have been testing this, will the Chromium-based version of Edge be included in the 1909 release?

        extremely unlikely so no

        Chromium Edge may end up being in the upcoming 20H1 or 2003 release

        btw, I’m already using 1909 but with build 18363.388 – haven’t updated to 18363.418 yet

      folks, do NOT expect anything exciting or “ground-breaking” with the upcoming 1909 release
      since 1909 is basically a “1903 service pack” or a refined/retreaded 1903 release with minor UI tweaks

      Is the optional install of Windows individual updates (like Win7) coming out in 1909 or Spring 2020?

      Despite v1909 being ready for business, I have remained at v1809 because of what I have read about v1903 on this site.  Can anyone tell me what I should expect if I am still at v1809 when v1909 gets widespread distribution.? Currently I have Feature upgrades set to 180 days.  Will I eventually be able to skip v1903 and go straight to v1909?

        v1903 has been “blessed” now for around 146 days (today being 10/15), so your Feature update deferral for v1903 is good for a while longer, somewhere around another month. If you do not change the deferral, v1903 should show up in Windows Update when the deferral expires.

        The countdown for v1909 deferral for v1809 will start when it is released to the public, although MS may throttle the deployment by limiting which computers are eligible at that point.

        But realize this, once you have upgraded to v1903, the pulldown settings in the GUI at Windows Update\Advanced settings will no longer function. Then deferrals are only controlled through Registry settings (Home and Pro) and Group Policy (for Pro only). What you will have in the GUI is only “Pause.”

          I don’t think it’s true to say that they will no longer function. Each will disappear from settings after each is set to greater than zero days, but the non-zero setting for each remains in effect.

            The pulldowns in the GUI do not function. They disappear. You can no longer use them.
            The settings in the Registry may still function. The settings in Group Policy may still function.
            But the pulldowns no longer function.

              They function and THEN disappear. You can use them once.

      Official release date of 1909 (Nov. 2019 update) leaked – November 12 🙂

      https://news.softpedia.com/news/windows-10-november-2019-update-launch-date-leaked-527868.shtml

      hmm, that’s actually the same date as the November 2015 Update (v1511) release – 11/12

        Plausible, but hardly official:

        “While the November 12 launch is just a rumor for now, it makes sense for two reasons.”

        “The company hasn’t yet announced the release date of Windows 10 November 2019 Update, so some skepticism is still recommended for this report.”

      check out this BleepingComputer.com article:
      https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-1909-is-almost-ready-what-developers-need-to-know/

      there’s a section of that article that says “November 2019 Update, more of a Windows 10 1903 SP1” 🙂
