    Why use the tool when you can download the major release ISO's from Microsoft.com.

    I agree. Just download the ISO straight from Microsoft.

    Where is that?
    And are they release versions or betas as well?

    The files on the drive will normally be designated by build number. Check some of those to see.

    No, it shows only version, not the build, like Build 14384.
    I want to know when the Media Creation Tool gets updated by a newer Build.

    Downloading the iso direct is the best way to be sure you're downloading the latest version, but the Media Creation Tool does have one advantage - it will by default download the correct version and edition for your PC. For each version (1607, 1511 or 10240) a new MCT was issued. As you (and I) found to our cost, an older MCT will still download the older iso. You can check the version of the MCT you have by looking at the Details tab in its Properties. For the original release there were two MCTs, separate ones for x86 and x64.
