Microsoft pushes cumulative update build 18277.1006 to Fast ring Windows Insiders


Microsoft is making the Pause Updates feature easier to find by making that option more visible directly on the Settings Update and Security Windows Update page.

Microsoft is planning a couple of venues where it plans to field questions from users of Windows 10 version 1809. Thankfully, as of yesterday, Microsoft has completed its investigation and will continuing rolling out the update, which includes full support for DirectX Raytracing (DXR).

The update is now available again to early adopters who are willing to manually install it, but generally speaking, Microsoft is proceeding with caution.

Although the firm insisted it was keen to release the new update, it emphasised it was going to continue the delivery "in a more measured approach" overall.

Microsoft added a new "light theme" for Windows 10 through preview build 18282, which it released today. You can check out the extensive list of features and updates over at the Windows Blog.

As noted in John Cable's blog post, we have changed the "born on" date accordingly and today marks the start of the 30-month support lifecycle for the Enterprise and Education editions of Windows 10, version 1809; and the 18-month support lifecycle for Windows 10 Pro and Windows 10 Pro for Workstation.

Not everyone is a Windows dark-theme fan. As part of this new light theme, Microsoft is adding a new default wallpaper highlighting Windows Light. For more details on now supported versions and support end dates, see the Windows 10 lifecycle fact sheet and the Windows 10 release information page.

They have also taken the data gathered from millions of devices on the Windows 10 October update to analyze what went wrong.

Cable said there has been no further evidence of data loss with the revised updated. For systems that have a device driver or application incompatibility issue, Microsoft will block the installation and you will have to wait a bit longer to obtain the October 2018 Update. And there's the recent Windows Activation Bug, not to mention.
