Starting from this month onwards, Microsoft introduced a new update system for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. The company will roll out Monthly Rollups for security and reliability issues, following users’ feedback.
More specifically, Windows will release a single Monthly Rollup that addresses both security issues and reliability issues in a single update. Each month’s rollup will supersede the previous month’s rollup, which means there will always be only one update required for your Windows PCs to get current.
The first Windows 7 Monthly Rollup Update is KB3185330, which was released on October 11. The upcoming Monthly Rollup update bears the code name KB3192403 and is already available for download as a preview version.
“This update includes improvements and fixes that were a part of Monthly Rollup KB3185330 (released October 11, 2016). This update also includes these new quality improvements and is a preview of the next Monthly Rollup update:
- Addressed issue with revised daylight saving time.
- Addressed issue that prevents pushed-printer connections and printer connections from trusted servers from being installed in Point and Print scenarios after installing MS16-087.
- Added a new Root Certificate type needed to support Catalog V2 for Windows 7 Embedded systems.
