Microsoft has encountered many problems with its major update of October 2018 for Windows 10. It finally resumes its automatic deployment very late, after the bugs have finally been fixed.
Microsoft has decided to move on a development cycle of two major updates a year: one over the summer, the most massive, and one over the winter to bring smaller functionality and major fixes.
The October 2018 update which unfortunately had a lot of excitement has launched and canceled then returned in November before being stopped again.
This time, it’s the right one: the automatic deployment of the October 2018 update is restarting, the deployment now starts on Windows Update. To find the latest version, simply wait or force the search for updates in the Windows settings.
The many bugs encountered by this update, which could delete data, crash the Radeon graphics cards or even conflict with some antivirus or VPN, are now resolved.
It is worth to mention that Microsoft is working hard on the next feature update for Windows 10, codenamed 19H1 and scheduled for release this April. This update is expected to include yet more changes, new features, and further UI refinements and improvements. Development of this release is almost at the halfway mark, meaning it shouldn’t be long now before 19H1 is marked as “feature complete” internally and a focus on fixing bugs before release begins.
