Microsoft Says it will pause the release of all optional cumulative updates from May


The company stated that there will be new updates for windows 10. Citing the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Microsoft is putting non-security updates on pause for all Windows 10 and Windows Server users. 

On March 10, Microsoft corporate vice-president, Yusuf Mehdi, proudly announced that more than a billion people were now using Windows 10. That was, it must be said, quite a landmark moment. Now this feels like another: citing the public health situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Microsoft has confirmed it will pause the release of all optional cumulative updates from May 2020. This follows the lead of Google, which has already paused all Chrome releases until further notice and, indeed, Microsoft Edge, which has done the same. 

The company statement:- 

In a March 24 announcement, Microsoft said it had been “evaluating the public health situation, and we understand this is impacting our customers.” The challenges that users of all supported versions of Windows 10 and Windows Server are facing have led Microsoft to respond by “pausing all optional non-security releases,” with effect from May 2020. These are the cumulative updates to Windows that arrive in the second and third weeks of the month. After the big Patch Tuesday mandatory security updates have been released. Importantly, while these cumulative updates don’t impact the security of your Windows 10 installation, they do contain bug fixes that could be causing problems in day to day use. 

Microsoft said that there would be “no change to the monthly security updates”. Which will “continue as planned to ensure business continuity and to keep our customers protected and productive.”
