The rollout begins! As previously rumored, Microsoft has released the Windows 10 May 2020 Update to developers. Those with the proper license can now download it on MSDN.
Otherwise, it’s also available on the Release Preview ring.
Today is Patch Tuesday, and in a perfect world, today would have marked the launch of this new feature update for the Windows 10 operating system. The original goal was to roll it out for everyone today, but Microsoft made the decision to push it back a bit to patch a 0-day security vulnerability.
Not to mention, there is also the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic to consider, which has forced the software titan to focus more on stability for those that are working from home. All this to mean that Microsoft is in no big rush to roll out big new feature updates.
But nevertheless, as spotted by WZor, this latest feature update is now available on MSDN.
This has also been confirmed by Mary Jo Foley of ZDNet, who reveals how the Windows team has been following this phased approach of delivering a new feature update to OEMs, then developers, and finally to mainstream users.
Goes without saying that the May 2020 Update has basically been ready for a while now, with Microsoft continuing to test it and issue cumulative updates for it in the various rings of the Windows Insider Program.
Apparently, the software titan already delivered Windows 10 version 2004 to its PC OEM partners last week, and now it’s available for developers.
General availability is likely to commence in a couple of weeks, on May 28.
