Windows 10 feature upgrade, codenamed 19H2. As was recommended by current reports, Microsoft’s 19H2 release is going to be a much smaller sized one than usual, being launched as a cumulative update that sits on top of 19H1 instead of a full-blown new OS release. Microsoft states that the update will offer “performance improvements, enterprise features, and quality enhancements” for Windows 10, which it’s currently targeting a September release.
The good news is that Microsoft is altering the upgrade process for the release to make it faster and less disruptive. The company says it will utilize servicing technology to provide the new update, meaning the process must be more similar to a routine month-to-month update rather than a significant bi-annual feature upgrade. The latest update process will only be available to users who are running Windows 10’s current May 2019 update. It’s also not a huge surprise, considering that more visible feature modifications– like its new Linux kernel– have remained in testing given that February with a build number showing a release in spring 2020.
Microsoft began releasing 19H2 to Windows Insiders “Slow ring” from this week. This update is more about testing the upgrade delivery procedure than about providing any new features, and Microsoft says it does not contain any changes that will be visible to users. The firm states that it will give information on 19H2’s new features as it moves closer to release. We’ll see if this staggering feature release brings a future of “seamless OS updates” faster rather than later.
