Yep, Microsoft is still pumping out near-final builds of Windows 10 version 1809. And no, there are no major new features. After all, this thing is literally days away from completion.
That said, there is a bit of news.
“The Windows Compatibility Team is pleased to announce that the Windows 10 October 2018 Update will be fully compatible with all major Tencent games,” Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar writes, misidentifying Windows 10 version 1809 like a commoner. “Game compatibility can be challenging due to the complexity of the games and reliance on anti-cheat services. We’ve done this by partnering closely with Tencent to test these games, investigate issues and produce fixes. Our hard work has paid off: we are pleased to say that this will be a successful release for our shared customers! We encourage all game developers or partners that produce anti-cheat software to reach out to us so that we can ensure compatibility for your products as well.”
Beyond that news—which literally has nothing to do with this build—there are no major changes, improvements, or fixes to speak of. More interesting, perhaps, there are no known issues. I’m not sure that’s ever happened before.
Here it comes.
