Last month, Microsoft announced a second-half Windows 10 feature update called the October 2020 update, with the release number corresponding to Build 19042 (up to .546, completed September 30). Microsoft could start pushing the official version of the October update as soon as today, and later this week.
One of the evidences is that the media media creation tool used to download the image was iterated earlier today, and Microsoft began uploading ISO files to cloud servers as a powerful signal.
In fact, the first preview version of the October update was compiled this spring, and build 19042 has been working on security updates and BUG fixes for more than two months, the final refinement and testing.
As we previously reported, “October Update” is a relatively small iteration, focusing on improvements and bug fixes. Of course, new transparent tiles, taskbar-to-hand, performance-optimized system experiences, and more are not underserved.
