Microsoft has released a new cumulative update for Windows insiders enrolled in the Slow ring.
Cumulative update KB4531955 doesn’t bring any major change, as its purpose is to help test servicing ahead of the Windows 10 20H1 feature update rollout to production devices.
The update should thus install rather fast, as it is only supposed to help Microsoft determine the reliability of the update servicing system in the Slow ring.
Installing this cumulative update increases the OS build to 19025.1052 – to check the version number of your Windows 10 installation, click the Start menu and type winver.
“We have released Build 19025.1052 which is a Cumulative Update with no major changes. We are trying out our servicing pipeline on 20H1 builds,” Microsoft announced in an update to a blog post. “A quick update to the latest Slow ring build, 19025.1052 is available. This is a no-change package verifying serviceability,” the Windows Insider Twitter account also announced.
Paving the way for Windows 10 20H1
Windows 10 20H1 is projected to launch in the first months of 2020, but the development process is already approaching the final stages.
People familiar with the matter said this feature update reached the feature-complete stage in the summer, and the latest few builds shipped to Windows insiders were only supposed to further polish the experience with this update.
Windows 10 20H1 RTM should be signed-off sometime in December, and the next few months will be used for the latest finishing touches before the rollout to production devices kicks off. This is expected to happen in April or May, according to Microsoft’s original release calendar, but an official announcement in this regard will be made as we get close to this date.
