The previous rings will be renamed channels, which also means a new strategy for the distribution of pre-release versions. In the future, the developer channel, which corresponds to the previous Fast Ring, wants to focus more on reliability than on fast publication.

Microsoft officials described Windows 10 20 H 2 as a "scoped set of features (Anyone on a version of Windows 10 earlier than the May 2020 Update will see the coming 20 H 2 release as a regular, larger update.) You agree to receive updates, alerts, and promotions from the CBS family of companies

Microsoft Has Already Finalized Windows 10 2020 ( 20 H 1 branch) - RTM Expected in December. At the time, the company had hinted that some things in this particular update require longer development time. Windows 10 20 H 2 (codenamed Manganese) is also reportedly under development internally.

As usual, there will be another feature update for Windows 10 in autumn. What is new is that the working title “20H2” will also be the version number; up to now, the half-year code has been replaced by a month-to-month code. For example, 20H1 became 2004, better known as the May 2020 Update.

The happy guesswork about the release date should begin soon. An unmistakable sign that a new Windows version has been completed is the release of test mode for commercial customers. This is exactly what has happened now: Microsoft urges companies to test version 20H2 in order to be ready for release.

We review the most important and interesting events in this article. Windows 10 May Update The Windows 10 May Update was a few days old, because Microsoft surprised with a long list of incompatibilities and update blockages, which prevented a quick change to the latest version. Various surface devices were also affected by this blockade.

Hello Windows Insiders, today we’re releasing 20 H 2 Build 19042.421 (KB4568831) to Windows Insiders in the Beta Channel. This provides us with a flexible, cloud-driven infrastructure to test customer reception of default Taskbar content and tailor these layouts based on user and device signal.

Microsoft will test Windows 10 20 H 1 builds with Insiders in the Skip Ahead ring and while it is an unusual test , it all indicates that Microsoft needs a longer time to test some upcoming exciting features. Microsoft isn’t planning to skip Windows 10 19 H 2 (October 2019 Update) preview builds.

The technical information that is communicated in this context is not new to Windows connoisseurs: 20H2 is delivered as a cumulative update to all PCs that have already installed version 2004. Here the update only enables the new functions and changes the version number; both systems are identical at the base. As with versions 1903 and 1909, future security and bug fix updates will be the same for versions 2004 and 20H2. For all PCs with older Windows versions, however, 20H2 comes as a full upgrade with a correspondingly longer installation time.

The innovations in the 2004 version are marginal and yet they immediately catch the eye, namely a new design for the start menu is used, which the insiders in the beta channel have already received.
