As reported earlier, both versions 1903 and 1909 share a common core operating system, which means they also share same cumulative updates. Microsoft said that "the 1909 version will always contain the fixes for 1903; however, 1903 will not contain the fixes for 1909." For more details, head over to the official release notes.
