Microsoft just released a new cumulative update for Windows 10 version 1511. The update is dubbed KB3176493, and was released a part of Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday along with two more cumulative updates for another two versions of Windows 10 (the July 2015 release and the Anniversary Update).

Since this is a cumulative update, it doesn’t include any new features but only a few reliability improvements, bug fixes, and security patches.

“This update includes quality improvements and security fixes. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include:

  • Improved reliability by allowing more time for devices to recover from connected standby mode.

  • Addressed issue affecting some devices with Bitlocker enabled that didn’t start up to the BitLocker password entry screen.

  • Addressed issue with MouseUp and MouseDown events not working correctly when using a scroll bar in an Inline Frame (IFrame).

  • Addressed issue that delays the display of content when resizing the Internet Explorer 11 browser window.

  • Addressed issue with special keys and mouse clicks that don’t work on devices when Remote Assistance is in session.

  • Addressed issue with rendering multi-pixel points in Web Graphics Library (WebGL).

  • Addressed additional issues with certain devices that can’t transition from connected standby to sleep mode, updates not installing, and Internet Explorer 11.

  • Security updates to Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Kernel Mode Drivers, Windows Authentication Methods, Microsoft Graphics Component, and Kernel Mode Blacklist.”

As we said, besides KB3176493, Microsoft also released cumulative updates KB3176495 for Windows 10 version 1607, and KB3176492 for Windows 10 July 2015 release. Each of these updates contains a few system improvements and security patches with no new features included.
