Amid news that Microsoft has delayed the public release of Windows 10 Redstone 4 (version 1803), the company has started to roll out the first cumulative update to the Insiders. Windows 10 Redstone 4 build 17133.73 (KB4100375) brings the first Patch Tuesday updates to the upcoming operating system version.
Windows 10 Redstone 4 receives its first cumulative update (KB4100375)
While many thought that Microsoft might release Windows 10 Spring Creators Update (or whatever its name is going to be) today, that's not what happened. Instead, the company pushed a new cumulative update to all the Insiders - in Fast, Slow and Release Preview rings. Remember, Skip Ahead has moved on to Redstone 5 testing.
Windows 10 1803, still lacking an official name, has received the following bug fixes in its first Patch Tuesday update:
- Addresses a PDF security issue in Microsoft Edge.
- Addresses an issue that, in some instances, prevents Internet Explorer from identifying custom controls.
- Security updates to Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft scripting engine, Windows kernel, Microsoft graphics component, Windows Server, Windows cryptography, and Windows datacenter networking.
It isn't clear when would Microsoft roll out Windows 10 Redstone 4 to the public, possibly this week or next Tuesday for all we know. Some have suggested that the company is considering a name change for its upcoming Windows 10 version. Today's Patch Tuesday refers to the OS as "Windows 10 Version Next."
We have written to Microsoft for a confirmation. In the meantime, you can check the minimum system requirements list in this post or learn about how to temporarily delay the incoming Windows 10 update in this guide.
- Microsoft has also released cumulative updates for Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, Creators Update (Version 1703), Anniversary Update and Version 1511 (aka the November Update). The last two are meeting the end of service today.
