    Microsoft is kicking off the official rollout of Windows 10 1909, the Windows 10 November 2019 feature update today, November 12.

    [​IMG]

    • This update will be published to WSUS so that customers can deploy and manage Insider Preview builds alongside their standard ConfigMan/WSUS approach. See this blog post for details.​
    • We are offering pre-release support for 19H2 offered to Windows Insider Program for Business (WIP4Biz) customers who face blocking issues that prevent them from feature evaluation or device use. See this article for details.​
    • Windows containers require matched host and container version. This restricts customers and limits Windows containers from supporting mixed-version container pod scenarios This update includes 5 fixes to address this and allow the host to run down-level containers on up-level for process (Argon) isolation.​
    • A fix to allow OEMs to reduce the inking latency based on the hardware capabilities of their devices rather than being stuck with latency selected on typical hardware configuration by the OS.​
    • Key-rolling or Key-rotation feature enables secure rolling of Recovery passwords on MDM managed AAD devices upon on demand request from Microsoft Intune/MDM tools or upon every time recovery password is used to unlock the BitLocker protected drive. This feature will help prevent accidental recovery password disclosure as part of manual BitLocker drive unlock by users.​
    • A change to enable third-party digital assistants to voice activate above the Lock screen.​
    • You can now quickly create an event straight from the Calendar flyout on the Taskbar. Just select the date and time at the lower right corner of the Taskbar to open the Calendar flyout and pick your desired date and start typing in the text box–you’ll now see inline options to set a time and location.​
    • The navigation pane on the Start menu now expands when you hover over it with your mouse to better inform where clicking goes.​
    • We have added friendly images to show what is meant by “banner” and “Action Center” when adjusting the notifications on apps in order to make these settings more approachable and understandable.​
    • Notifications settings under Settings > System > Notifications will now default to sorting notification senders by most recently shown notification, rather than sender name. This makes it easier to find and configure frequent and recent senders. We have also added a setting to turn off playing sound when notifications appear.​
    • We now show the options to configure and turn off notifications from an app/website right on the notification, both as a banner and in Action Center.​
    • We have added a “Manage notifications” button to the top of Action Center that launches the main “Notifications & actions” Settings page.​
    • We have added additional debugging capabilities for newer Intel processors. This is only relevant for hardware manufacturers.​
    • We have made general battery life and power efficiency improvements for PCs with certain processors.​
    • A CPU may have multiple “favored” cores (logical processors of the highest available scheduling class). To provide better performance and reliability, we have implemented a rotation policy that distributes work more fairly among these favored cores.​
    • We have enabled Windows Defender Credential Guard for ARM64 devices for additional protection against credential theft for enterprises deploying ARM64 devices in their organizations.​
    • We have enabled the ability for enterprises to supplement the Windows 10 in S Mode policy to allow traditional Win32 (desktop) apps from Microsoft Intune.​
    • We’re updating the search box in File Explorer to now be powered by Windows Search. This change will help integrate your OneDrive content online with the traditional indexed results. More details here.
    • We have added the ability for Narrator and other assistive technologies to read and learn where the FN key is located on keyboards and what state it is in (locked versus unlocked).​

    Downloaded the media creation tool 1909 to do a clean install. All details about the file lead to 18362.418

    I want to be able to take advantage of the um trying to remember the exact way to word it but the AMD feature where it implements CPPC - Collaborative Power And Performance Control fully in Windows - favored cores and such as well. Been looking forward to trying that out since updating to AGESA 1.0.0.4 (3700X cpu)

    1909 is a pre-requisite for all the above

    What's ambiguous to me is if it's vendor specific. 1903 brought some AMD optimizations along that gamut however the change-log of 1909 stated.

    A CPU may have multiple “favored” cores (logical processors of the highest available scheduling class). To provide better performance and reliability, we have implemented a rotation policy that distributes work more fairly among these favored cores.

    This language is written rather agnostic..

    Yep, this file is a fake and installs 1903 again - there must be a joker @ MS finding this funny!
    There is still no valid 1909 Media creation tool available as far as I know

    Actually from what I read...the media creation tooll is 18362.418. Once installed...Windows update does the rest. Supposedly 1909 is no more than a service pak. All the features of 1909 are in 18362.418, just not activated. Maybe that's why...MS is too lazy to give you any more

    So 1909 is not a big update, for me it updated so fast.

    It's a small enablement package activating the new features and changing the build id to 18363.xxx instead of 18362 but if the cumulative was installed then yeah it's a few KB in size and a reboot and all is done. :D
    Interesting little way to end the two builds per year thing but it works and now there's media for 18363.418 and this cumulative update to .476 and the servicing stack fulfilling that criteria even if 18362 and 18363 have shared data for a while now.
    (So all that little cab file does when installed is basically switch the added stuff to a enabled state thus it's not a very big download by itself and could have been done manually already via DISM or third party utilities.)

    Never happened here with that file - installed 1909 yesterday through KB4524570 which then initialised the update to 1909

    Here's one maybe noticeable performance benefit from the change-log:

    Probably the first update where I have not seen complaints from people about. So certainly there appears to be no negatives with this update. The changes are minimal, but they all seem to be improvements.

    More extended changelog here:

    Hmm the description sounds like it only benefits logical cores such as with hyperthreading. I have a 9700K so I have only physical cores.
