W.10 version 1909

I got this update yesterday. It wasn't the usual major event that previous version updates have been. If you want to know what changes have been made, they can be read about in simple terms by visiting the How-To Geek page linked to below (updated November 13th).

If it reminds me to 'Feed the Chickens', it's the one for me.

Re: W.10 version 1909

Thanks .....

Just last night I received this update:

November 12, 2019—KB4524570 (OS Builds 18362.476 and 18363.476)
Applies to: Windows 10, version 1903Windows Server version 1903Windows 10, version 1909 More
Release Date:12 November 2019
Version:1903-OS Build 18362.476 and 1909-OS Build 18363.476
What's new for Windows 10, version 1909 and Windows 10, version 1903 release notes
Windows 10, versions 1903 and 1909 share a common core operating system and an identical set of system files. As a result, the new features in Windows 10, version 1909 were included in the recent monthly quality update for Windows 10, version 1903 (released October 8, 2019), but are currently in a dormant state. These new features will remain dormant until they are turned on using an enablement package, which is a small, quick-to-install “master switch” that simply activates the Windows 10, version 1909 features.

To reflect this change, the release notes for Windows 10, version 1903 and Windows 10, version 1909 will share an update history page. Each release page will contain a list of addressed issues for both 1903 and 1909 versions. Note that the 1909 version will always contain the fixes for 1903; however, 1903 will not contain the fixes for 1909. This page will provide you with the build numbers for both 1909 and 1903 versions so that it will be easier for support to assist you if you encounter issues.
I'll suspend "activation" of 1909 ..... It seems that there already some known issues:

Re: W.10 version 1909

Just had a quick look through these, Mart and Omah.
I'm not averse to updating software, including Windows, but a couple of things I read are off-putting, especially the possibility of having to re-install some software.

To be honest, none of the 'improvements' listed appeal to me as long as my computer is working as it should. In fact I have never noticed any improvements to how the computer works following any Windows Update, whereas I have noticed inconvenient changes which I can do without.

I'm sorry, but I'm not a fan of unnecessary updates.

No need to be sorry JBR. I don't think anyone is going to be disappointed. We all have our different ways of handling things. Being informed and then considering subsequent actions is the main thing.

Re: W.10 version 1909

Version 1909 is downloading as I type!

Never had a problem with any Windows updates so far and I like the idea that any system weaknesses have been fixed.

Re: W.10 version 1909

An edited overview

https://www.computerworld.com/articl...ches-this.html

The patches haven’t yet been out for 24 hours and already we’re seeing a lot of activity. Here’s where we stand with the initial wave of problems.

Malicious Software Removal Tool installation error 800B0109

Many early patchers found that the MSRT, KB 890830, kept installing itself over and over again. There are hundreds of reports online of people who found that the MSRT installer threw an 800B0109 and wouldn’t install; or installed but then reinstalled on reboot; showed up multiple times in the Installed Updates list; didn’t show up in the Installed Updates list in spite of running; and several variations on those themes.

Ends up, it was all Microsoft’s fault. By last night, MSRT was behaving itself.

Servicing Stack Updates

Microsoft released new updates for the Servicing Stack on all supported versions of Windows. Notably, Win7 and 8.1 also have new SSUs. (You only have to worry about SSUs if you manually download and install updates. If you use Windows Update, they should be installed automatically. Should.) There’s a complete list of the new SSUs in Security Advisory ADV990001.

Another mysterious 'exploited' Internet Explorer security hole

Yesterday’s patches includes one for an Internet Explorer security hole, dubbed CVE-2019-1429, an “exploited” vulnerability. Just like the August “exploited” IE zero-day Keystone Kops episode, this appears to be a genuine flaw in IE. Just like the August doppelganger, Microsoft isn’t telling us very much.

A reprieve from 'optional non-security' updates for the rest of the year

This should come as good news for Windows patchers of all stripes.

Microsoft has officially announced that it’s giving up on its practice of releasing (at least) two cumulative updates per month, through the end of this year. Tucked away in a neglected corner of the Windows Release Information page lies this little gem:

Timing of Windows 10 optional update releases (November/December 2019)

There will be no more optional “C” or “D” releases for the balance of this calendar year. Note There will be a December Security Update Tuesday release, as usual.

For those of you who don’t speak the A-B-C-D-E jargon, that means we won’t have second cumulative updates in November or December. The “optional, non-security” patches (which frequently contain fixes for bugs introduced by security updates) are a strange artifact that solidified in early 2017.

It looks like Microsoft is shutting that down, at least for the next two months, and I say good riddance.

The rise of 1909

Those who have installed the Win10 1903 November cumulative update, KB 4524570, and rebooted, will see an offer on your Windows Update setting page (screenshot).

Right now, there’s no pressing reason to click that “Download and install now” link. Let’s wait and see what problems arise.
I concur .....
