Microsoft Launches Windows 10 Update History Page for IT Pros

Much like the company does for Surface and Band firmware, Microsoft has put together a new Windows 10 Update History page to help squelch the multitude of complaints from IT Pros.

The new resource location: Windows 10 update history

We're committed to our customers and strive to incorporate their feedback, both in how we deliver Windows as a service and the info we provide about Windows 10. In response to this feedback, we’re providing more details about the Windows 10 updates we deliver through Windows Update. You'll see a summary of important product developments included in each update, with links to more details. This page will be regularly refreshed, as new updates are released.

I noted something like this was coming last year after attending a series of press meetings in Redmond in August 2015. At the time of those meetings, Jim Alkove, VP of the Windows Enterprise team, proposed that it was being considered. Read about that here: Microsoft is Listening, Change Lists for Windows 10 Updates are Coming for Enterprises.

All things considered, even though the update list took 6 months to materialize, that’s a pretty good turnaround. Microsoft has been steadily releasing cumulative updates to Windows 10 each month and delivered a pretty major upgrade in November. All that takes time.

The company has piggy-backed onto Patch Tuesday for February 2015 to deliver the first list of what’s new and changed. The list is apparently not retroactive, so you’ll only see what’s been updated from today’s date and forward.

Is this enough for you? Does it fully address customer complaint?
