Microsoft has launched new updates for Windows insiders working Windows 10 19H1 and 19H2 within the Release Preview ring.
As a part of Microsoft’s efforts to embrace a brand new throttled supply method for 19H2, the corporate is utilizing the identical cumulative updates for each Windows 10 variations, inflicting some confusion within the Windows neighborhood as a result of determining which model is which has all of the sudden grow to be tougher.
First and foremost, after putting in these new updates, Windows 10 19H1 builds will enhance to 18362.329, whereas Windows 10 19H2 will attain 18363.329.
Windows 10 19H2 to be prepared subsequent month
Microsoft explains that this new system permits the corporate to solely allow new options for a restricted set of customers.
“To offer a clarification on these releases – 19H1 and 19H2 share the same servicing content. That means they share the same Cumulative Update package. For the small subset of Windows Insiders (the 10%) in Release Preview who were given the option to install 19H2, an enablement package is downloaded from Windows Update that turns on the 19H2 features,” Dona Sarkar, chief of the Windows Insider program, explains in a weblog publish.
“This *changes* the build number for the OS from 19H1 Build 18362 to 19H2 Build 18363. Because they use the same servicing content, the build revision number (the number that comes after the dot) will always match between 19H1 and 19H2. As we continue to test our servicing packages in the Release Preview ring, Insiders on 19H1 and 19H2 will get a single Cumulative Update with the same fixes.”
Windows 10 19H2 is projected to be finalized as quickly as the following month, and the general public rollout ought to start in October after the testing part is completed. For now, it doesn’t seem to be this launch will carry too many new options, albeit the largest change seems to be this throttled supply system that Microsoft has been testing for a number of months already.
