      Since there are five Tuesdays in April this year, my guess is that they are skipping the third and shooting for the fourth – Tuesday, April 23rd.

        That’ll give them the undocumented “E Week” to set things straight…. 🙂

      Maybe they found a bug.

        Possible, but it’s exceedingly odd that there’s a show-stopper bug in Win7, 8.1, Server, and the Win10 versions….

      if no new patches appear by Thursday morning of April 18, then MS will probably post them after Easter

      I was wondering the same thing.

      I found this
      Windows 10 update servicing cadence

      https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Windows-IT-Pro-Blog/Windows-10-update-servicing-cadence/ba-p/222376

      The “C” and “D” releases occur the third and fourth weeks of the month, respectively. These preview releases contain only non-security updates, and are intended to provide visibility and testing of the planned non-security fixes targeted for the next month’s Update Tuesday release. These updates are then shipped as part of the following month’s “B” or Update Tuesday release.

        Obviously, Microsoft wants us just to work on updates all the time and do nothing else, just test, deploy and give reports. You know what? This should be your job, Microsoft.
        I will remain on 1809 as long as possible, all blocked in WSUS. I have fully functional Acronis image, deploying on new computers including SW – 100% functional. I dont want to recreate this image every few months. SCCM is not possible in our domain – we dont have Azure yet 🙁

        The problem is not that major semi-annual upgrades can break/freeze your computer. The problem is, that this damage can be caused by security or cumulative updates – last Sophos-Windows combo issue gave us a lesson.
        I dont even want more “functionalities” to our company OS, why should I? By the way, what is the biggest new “function” Microsoft brought to us? Black theme? Opensource calculator? Useless junk.

        Microsoft is not able to solve issues in weeks! On the other hand, they give whole DAY to deal with your isuues.

      It has not been release since there is a new exploit hack in Windows 10 that seems to date back to core system files all the way to Windows 7.

      So, this just showed up on my stand alone workstations running 1803:
      https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4346084/kb4346084-intel-microcode-updates

      Looks like a re-release and it’s labeled in the UI as
      2019-02 (February??) Update for Windows 10 Version 1803 . . .

      Also this news just in:
      https://devblogs.microsoft.com/dotnet/announcing-the-net-framework-4-8/

      Might be related to the delay, although I am not seeing this being delivered tonight (yet) I suspect there was some juggling in the background in getting .Net 4.8 shipped.

      More about the newly announced .Net 4.8 that caught my eye tonight:

      Runtime – Antimalware Scanning for All Assemblies

      In previous versions of .NET Framework, Windows Defender or third-party antimalware software would automatically scan all assemblies loaded from disk for malware. However, assemblies loaded from elsewhere, such as by using Assembly.Load, would not be scanned and could potentially carry viruses undetected.

      .NET Framework 4.8 on Windows 10 triggers scans for those assemblies by Windows Defender and many other antimalware solutions that implement the Antimalware Scan Interface. We expect that this will make it harder for malware to disguise itself in .NET programs.

      This is very good news, as previously this has been a source of malware vectored grief.

      so far no “C” week and no “D” week patches as I’m making this post around 12:20PM Pacific local time Tuesday 4/23

      maybe MS is enjoying their Easter holiday 🙂

        There’s something fishy in Denmark.

      I know I didn’t mention it but I have 3 windows 10 computers on 1809. I didn’t expect any activity pertaining to C & D releases and that is the case for me. Anyway I’m ready for Update Tuesday May 14 and look forward for what’s going to come through.

      For 1903, I’ll wait until it wants to naturally install even if I have to wait for 6 months or so as well as pay attention to Woody’s & Susan Bradley’s recommendations.

      Yesterday my 3 Win10’s updated to May 3, 2019—KB4495667 (OS Build 17763.475).
      Since this occured outside of Microsoft’s “B”, “C”, “D” releases per
      https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Windows-IT-Pro-Blog/Windows-10-update-servicing-cadence/ba-p/222376
      this falls into the “out-of-band” release release
      “An out-of-band release is any update that does not follow the standard release schedule. These are reserved for situations where devices must be updated immediately either to fix security vulnerabilities or to solve a quality issues impacting many devices.”

      It will be interesting to see what comes in on Update Tuesday May 14 .
