Microsoft announced that the Windows 10 1809 Feature update is ready for wide deployment. The feature update is popularly known as Windows 10 October 2018 update is now marked as “Ready for Mass Deployment” by the company, as developers have finalised the code for the update. With this decision, the update will be eventually rolled out for all of the customers, including the business customers. Microsoft released the update in October 2018 but had to pull out the same due to critical system bug.
After fixing the critical security bug that wiped off the entire hard disk of the users, it is now ready for mass deployment as cited by Microsoft spokesperson. Microsoft pulled out both the Individual and Server Versions of Windows 10 1809 from the updates and now are putting the same back and will be ready to download very soon. The company slowly rereleased the update in November 2018 to check if the issue is fixed or not, but the mass rollout was not done at that time due to the fear of data loss. The company aimed at refining the features before large-scale deployment of Windows 10 1809 version.
After fixing the bug and adding new features, the Windows 10 1809 is ready to release and will be rolled out for all in coming days. The updates will be rolled out for Windows 10 and Windows Server 2019 simultaneously. This update will honour the Semi-Annual Channel Targeted (SAC-T) designation, but the upcoming Windows 10 1909 update will not follow the same designation. Microsoft has almost finalised the Windows 10 1903 update, which is dubbed as “April 2019” update. This is a significant update just like October 2018 update and might be launched instead of 1809 refined version. As of now, the company is supposed to roll out Windows 10 April 2019 update anytime in next month.
