Forget 19H1, Microsoft Will Soon Release Windows 10 19H2 Builds

Forget 19H1, Microsoft Will Soon Release Windows 10 19H2 Builds Forget 19H1, Microsoft Will Soon Release Windows 10 19H2 Builds

To be clear, this is the update expected to land late this year, which Microsoft has already begun work on internally, at least according to a leak on Twitter which showed evidence of a new Windows 10 Build 18823 for 19H2 (19H2 referring to the second half of 2019).

However, Microsoft announced a change in its Internet Explorer support policy back in August 2014, adding the following clause: "Beginning January 12, 2016, only the most current version of Internet Explorer available for a supported operating system will receive technical support and security updates". Microsoft apparently let its policy slide a bit.

The experience has been so bad that most Windows 10 users chose to wait rather than updating to this newest version.

However, as the original report indicated, this sudden change of mind could be implemented gradually. However, two notable exceptions to this were Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 Embedded, which couldn't support IE11 at the time. The browser will continue to run, but it will be potentially insecure to use it.

Yesterday Microsoft released a new build of Windows 10 19H1, which changed the version number from 1809 to 1903, in principle, is not a huge surprise, given the rules of Microsoft to release one update in the spring and one in the fall update. Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 Embedded customers have until January 2020 to get ready for the switch.

Although Microsoft released the update to "advanced" users at the end of past year, and to everyone without a "showstopper" (of which more below) at the start of 2019, the staggered rollout means that it hasn't actually been served to everyone even now.

If backward compatibility with IE 10 is still needed by organizations, Microsoft's announcement recommended using its Enterprise Mode scheme.

Microsoft won't offer paid assisted support options to extend the Internet Explorer 10 support period.

"To simplify deployment, you will be able to download IE11 via the Microsoft Update Catalog". This affects Windows Media Player and Windows Media Center on all versions of Windows 7 and partially affects Windows 8/8.1.
