In a new TechNet essay itemizing new IT pro facilities for a Anniversary Update (codenamed “Redstone 1”), Microsoft officials enclosed this line:
“Windows 10, chronicle 1607 is a third Windows 10 underline refurbish released. Based on feedback from organizations relocating to Windows 10, this will be a final underline refurbish for 2016, with dual additional underline updates approaching in 2017.”
