Microsoft ready to release next Windows 10 update

Microsoft is ready to release this year's second Windows 10 feature upgrade, which it has now named the Windows 10 November 2019 Update.

The new update includes mainly bugfixes for the May 2019 Update, as well as a list of minor new features such as the ability to create an event from the Calendar flyout on the taskbar and support for Windows Defender Credential Guard for ARM64 devices.

With the new update, enterprises will now also be able to supplement their Windows 10 in S Mode policies to support traditional Win32 apps from Microsoft Intune.

Other updates include power efficiency improvements for certain processors, additional debugging capabilities for newer Intel processors and various user interfaces.

The relative sparsity of the update could signal a step back from Microsoft's recent policy of offering twice-yearly major feature upgrades. The release is more in line with the Service Packs released for operating systems such as Windows XP.

In a blog post, Microsoft Senior Program Manager for the Windows Insider Program Brandon LeBlanc has detailed the process of implementing the update for Insider members.

Insiders are able to download the update already by joining the program's Release Preview ring and downloading a cumulative update enablement package, he said.
