Microsoft Corporation has announced that its next big release of Windows 10 software program will be called the Update of Windows 10 May 2019, and it will introduce various new features along with a completely new mechanism of delivery that will put more power in the hands of the users. The update will roll out to the testers of Windows Insider from next week on wards and will be available to the common public in phases beginning in the late month of May. Microsoft Corporation will be hoping to avoid a repeat of the multiple different problems that plagued its Update of Windows 10 October 2018. In a post published to the Windows Experience blog, Microsoft Corporation says that it has taken users to feedback about the process of disruptive Windows Update and has made major changes to how these window updates are offered, installed and downloaded.
Beginning with the Update of Windows 10 May 2019, all the users will see notifications that the new update is now available and that it is recommended, but users will decide for themselves whether or not to install it on their computer system. The only time that Windows 10 will automatically initiate an update is when a current version user is approaching its date of end-of-service, which is typically at least two complete years for each and every release.
New and latest controls will allow users to pause all of the windows update activity for 35 days, and choose to only initiate all the new updates when they check for them manually by themselves. Major version updates of windows will be distinguished from several patches of periodic security and various bug fixes, which do not pose as much of a high risk of failure. An Intelligent Active Hours feature will automatically detect when the users are less likely to be interrupted by a windows update since very few people actually manually choose their active hours.
Microsoft Corporation will publish a new online dashboard to allow all the users to check the status of updates and understand any potential problems as they are detected. The organization hopes that this will improve transparency. All this comes shortly after Microsoft Corporation introduced a way for failed Update of Windows to be rolled back automatically in case a computer system cannot boot. Another update earlier this year caused unexpected degradation of performance in a small number of games.
Up until now, Microsoft Corporation has automatically updated computer systems of users and allowed only minimal deferrals or delays. Following catastrophic bugs with the Update of Windows 10 October 2018 that saw some people lose important report and files crashes, the organization was forced to cancel the rollout multiple different times and then release it in very small batches as it collected data and information about potential incompatibilities and various other issues. Further, Microsoft Corporation decided to blacklist some computer systems based on software and hardware that might not function as intended immediately after a new update, to allow time for other manufacturers to prepare their own patches or drivers.
The May 2019 Windows Update is already releasing later than people expected, and the Windows Experience blog post says that the organization has spent a lot of time with it in a release preview phase which allows software vendors, PC OEMs, and other ecosystem partners test compatibility. In addition to the feedback of the user and telemetry collected automatically, Microsoft Corporation has begun using machine learning to help identify and predict potentially disruptive problems at the global scale.
