Today, Microsoft released the fourth cumulative update to Windows 10 version 2004, this time to PCs in the Windows Insider Slow ring.
Windows 10 version 2004 build 19041.153 (KB4541738) is a cumulative update that includes only quality improvements. And it is, by my count, the fourth time that Microsoft has issued a CU for this pre-release Windows 10 version. Previous CUs were released in mid-January, mid-February, and late February. Because the Insider Fast ring has moved on to Windows 10 version 20H2, the past two CUs have been issued only to the Slow ring.
Key fixes include:
Additionally, Microsoft changed how the Linux kernel in Windows Subsystem for Linux 2 (WSL2) is installed and serviced. The firm explained this change in a separate blog post.
“We’re … improving the servicing model of the Linux kernel,” Microsoft’s Craig Loewen explains. “We’ve removed the Linux kernel from the Windows OS image and instead will be delivering it to your machine via Windows Update, the same way that 3rd-party drivers (like graphics, or touchpad drivers) are installed and updated on your machine today. This change will give you more agility and flexibility over Linux kernel updates in WSL2.”
