It’s Patch Tuesday time again, and Microsoft has some interesting changes in the bag.
As you already know, Windows 10 v1909 was released last month. This version of Windows shares the core operating system and the system files with Windows 10 v1903.
Because of that, many of the new features of v1909 were included in the v1903, thanks to the latest quality update. But they are inactive until the installation of a enablement package meant to activate the v1909 features.
For that reason, Windows 10 v1909 and v1903 share most of the new changes and features that come with KB4530684. This will bump up the OS builds to 18362.535, and 18363.535 respectively.
KB4530684 brings some error fixes for v1909 and v1903
KB4530684 brings improved security when Windows performs basic operations for both Windows versions, but not only that.
Some of the key changes for Windows 10 v1903 include:
- Addresses an issue that might cause error 0x3B in cldflt.sys on some devices.
- Addresses an issue that might prevent you from creating a local user account using the Input Method Editor (IME) for Chinese, Japanese, or Korean languages. This issue occurs when setting up a new Windows device during the Out of Box Experience (OOBE).
- Security updates to Windows Virtualization, Windows Kernel, the Microsoft Scripting Engine, and Windows Server.
It’s worth mentioning that Windows 10 v1909 includes all the changes that come with v1903. Also, there are no know issues in the release.
KB4530684 includes an update for Microsoft HoloLens released December 10, 2019, but the big M will push it directly to the Windows Update Client for improved reliability.
