Yes, I know it seems early, but today’s release of a cumulative update for Windows 10 version 20H2 indicates that this release is nearly complete.
Windows 10 version 20H2 is currently testing in the Windows Insider Beta channel, or what used to be called the Slow ring. Today, Microsoft released build 19042.388 (KB4565503) to testers, describing it as a cumulative update that only includes quality improvements.
Those improvements include:
- A fix for an issue that might prevent users from using PowerShell to change the system locale on Server Core platforms.
- A fix for an issue that might cause certain games and applications to have visual distortion when resizing in windowed mode or switching from full screen to window mode.
- A fix for an issue that causes lsass.exe to fail with the following error message, “A critical system process, C:\WINDOWS\system32\lsass.exe, failed with status code c0000008. The machine must now be restarted.”
- A fix for an issue that might prevent some applications from printing documents that contain graphics or large files after installing Windows Updates released June 9, 2020.
- A fix for an issue that might prevent users from connecting to OneDrive using the OneDrive app. This issue occurs on some older devices or on devices that have older apps, which use legacy file system filter drivers. As a result, this might prevent these devices from downloading new files or opening previously synced or downloaded files.
Additionally, this cumulative update includes security updates to the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, the Microsoft Store, Windows Graphics, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Media, Windows Shell, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Management, Windows Kernel, Windows Hybrid Cloud Networking, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Update Stack, Windows MSXML, Windows File Server and Clustering, Windows Remote Desktop, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge Legacy, and the Microsoft JET Database Engine.
