Windows 10 to Now Receive Biannual Updates in September and March

21 Avril 2017

For the past three Win10 versions (er, "feature updates")-1511, 1607, 1703-Microsoft's been able to churn out new versions every eight months. Not much to see though there now, but this is going to change.

It also affirms an 18-month support timescale for each update and, most importantly, confirms that Redstone 3, which is expected to see the UI get a massive overhaul, will be rolled out in September.

The company just released its most recent version of Windows, the Windows 10 Creator's Update, and said the next feature update is now targeted for release in September.

Knowing when updates will land is useful.

Windows Insiders are already trying out builds in the Redstone 3 track, though they've been fairly sparse in terms of new features so far. Windows Update too is in serious disarray. "There is a lot of demand from customers to bring the Windows and Office cadence together because they are modernising their clients with Windows 10 and Office 365 PP at the same time". "The IT benefits-particularly security-are cut short".

But there's one area of the update that really let us down: the Windows Store.

While the detection system is pretty strong, you have been provided with an option to opt individual apps out from power throttling.

I want a central location for all preferences. One of the things these IT people are looking for is how to prevent a user from controlling the Settings on Control Panel.

Klopp delighted by Liverpool concentration
Liverpool was the better team at The Hawthorns but almost got picked off late on in West Brom's only clear sight of goal. And Klopp admitted he could see how Pulis had frustrated Liverpool on their travels for so long.

In nearly every case in the past, Microsoft has discouraged users from applying unsanctioned patches, warning that they risk crippling the operating system and thus their computers.

To be fair, Microsoft did warn Windows users about what's coming.

This tool will fix most computer errors, protect you from file loss, malware, hardware failure and optimize your PC for maximum performance.

Use blog posts to highlight advantages of your programs, but please, keep the operating system clean. It's even more important for those who need their laptops or tablets for working on the go.

I don't know whether developer interest is really that low, or if Microsoft limits releases. There will be times when Windows 10 thinks an app should be throttled when you believe otherwise. Others can not be uninstalled this way however, and the Move apps option worked for a short period of time but has been inactive for the most part of its existence. What you may have noticed is that the Redmond giant has added new settings to improve your battery life as well.

The feature works by detecting which apps you're now using and which you aren't, cutting back on the energy being dedicated to those you're not using at that moment.

Specifically, this move appears to be a direct result of feedback from enterprise customers - the single most valuable segment for Windows 10 adoption. You can also take an in-depth tour of all the new relevant features.
