    When is the Next Big Feature Update Due?


    We know the next Spring Update is due in the next few months. I think it is going to be v2004?
    Is there an official ETA yet?

    Sorry couldn't resist.
    Usually you get hints its "coming soon", then it happens. Panic strikes etc etc.

    No, MS never give an official ETA much in advance, not until about a week before it's released.

    Yes, 20H1 is going to be called version 2004. Keep an eye on the Insider items in the News forum. Currently version 2004, build 19041.113 is in the Slow ring. It has now got to the stage where new builds are being release by cumulative updates rather than a complete new build - usually a sign that the features have been finalised and the debugging has begun.

    KB4540409 for Windows 10 Insider Preview Slow Build 19041.113 Feb. 27

    You'll know it won't be long before release when it moves from the Slow ring to the Release Preview ring. 1903 spent over a month in Release Preview before its May 21 2019 release. So if 2004 goes to Release Preview in early April then it looks like around the same time this year is on the cards - but don't expect any official announcement until a week or so before launch.

    Meteorological Spring or Astronomical Spring?
    I'll start a slow panic now and then ramp up a little each week!

    It must add to the panic and dread when there is that added confusion while installing the Spring Update in Fall and the Fall Update in Spring! "That's why all my icons have changed!!"

    Oh look, in 2004 Cortana will now be able to respond to text input, that's a welcome new addition restoration of a feature removed a year ago.

    No keyboard input for Cortana in 1903?

    Microsoft has temporarily removed Cortana features like jokes, timers, and Bing instant answers. It’s focusing on a productivity-based feature for now.
    - but less fun.. although available in far more languages.

    The new Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) is probably the most important feature in Windows 10 20H1. This is WSL version 2, and it’s even more powerful than the first version. WSL 2 uses a real Linux kernel to provide an even more powerful, more full-featured Linux environment on Windows 10.
    Windows 10’s May 2019 Update fixed Start menu search. Microsoft did this by taking advantage of the old Windows search indexer, which runs in the background and scans your PC’s files to create a search database.

    Microsoft asked why Insiders were turning off the search indexer and received three main areas to improve: “excessive disk and CPU usage, general performance issues, and low perceived value of the indexer.” Microsoft says it’s now detecting peak usage times so it can better optimize when the indexer runs. For example, it won’t run when gaming mode is on, if power saving mode is on, if low power mode is on, when CPU usage is about 80%, when disk usage is above 70%, or when the battery is below 50%.
    They haven't finished with search yet...

    This may slightly reduce the post count:
    Safe Mode now works with PIN login, too. If you’ve set up Windows Hello to sign in with a PIN, you’ll be able to use that PIN to sign in to your PC after booting into Safe Mode. Previously, Safe Mode made you enter your account’s password
