  • Master Patch List – September 2018

    September’s updates

    1803 has now been declared Semi annual (ready for business). If you are not ready for 1803 make sure you have set deferrals. 1809 is going to be released soon.

    The main September updates look so far so good, on 9/23/2018 I updated to note that I’m not tracking any major issues. Skip the microcode updates and any update released on 9/13/2018.
