Q. After the botched rollout of this feature update, will anything change regarding the next feature roll-out? I want to know what to expect with upgrades.
This is a good question.
So much extra time has been spent over the last few weeks talking about the release, withdrawal, and re-release process of the October 2018 Update for Windows 10. In fact, the October 2018 Update still has not returned to even a seeker release status as testing is still occurring in the Slow and Release Preview Rings for that feature update. I have not heard any new reports of data loss and you have all read about the issue in a recent Windows Secrets newsletter to understand what caused the problem in the first place.
That means both Microsoft and those of us who watch for what’s next in Windows 10 has been experiencing an unexpected hiatus in new development builds for the next feature update. However, it looks like that hiatus might be coming to an end.
This week Microsoft released Windows 10 19H1 Build 18262 to Fast Ring Windows Insiders. This is the ninth overall build in the 19H1 development cycle and the first on more than two weeks. With what appears to be good testing happening on the fix for the October 2018 Update, it looks like Microsoft is ready to move forward with work on 19H1.
