Microsoft adds another layer to the Windows 10 patching onion

Microsoft yesterday added another update cycle to Windows 10’s monthly patching, saying that the new collection of non-security-only fixes would give corporate customers the “increased flexibility” they had demanded.

On Monday, Michael Niehaus, director of Windows 10 product marketing, announced the new monthly update, saying that the company would initially issue it only to customers running 1703, the upgrade also known as Creators Update, which launched earlier this month.

“We will routinely offer one (or sometimes more than one) additional update each month,” Niehaus wrote in a post to a company blog. “These additional cumulative updates will contain only new non-security updates” [emphasis added].
