KB4476976 for Windows 10 version 1809 and Server 2019 released
Microsoft released -- the missing -- cumulative updateÂ KB4476976 for Windows 10 version 1809 and Server 2019 yesterday evening to the public.
The company released cumulative updates for earlier versions of Windows 10 days ago but decided to test the update for Windows 10 version 1809 in the Release Preview ring before its official release.
Microsoft changed its strategy in regards to cumulative update releases for the latest version of Windows 10 after the update fiasco of Windows 10 version 1809. Instead of releasing cumulative updates outright, like the company has done on older versions of Windows 10, it is pushing updates to the Release Preview ring first before releasing them.
In other words, another round of testing and -- hopefully -- bug finding before the update is unleashed on the general population.
