As Microsoft prepare to rollout the Windows 10 April 2020 Update (20H1) they have just released a cumulative update to the slow ring. The update includes a number of fixes to the OS and a change to how the Windows Sub System for Linux is installed.

The Windows 10 April 2020 Update could roll out on the next patch Tuesday on April 14th but that is just a guess from me.

Here are the changes and known issues:

We fixed an issue that might prevent ActiveX content from loading.

We fixed an issue that might cause Microsoft browsers to bypass proxy servers.

We fixed an issue with rendering PeerDist-encoded content in Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.

We changed how the Linux kernel in WSL2 is installed and serviced on your machine, for more details please read this Windows Command Line blog post.

Security updates to Windows Server, the Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows App Platform and Frameworks, Windows Graphics, Windows Input and Composition, Windows Media, Windows Silicon Platform, Microsoft Edge, Windows Fundamentals, Windows Authentication, Windows Cryptography, Windows Kernel, Windows Core Networking, Windows Storage and Filesystems, Windows Peripherals, Windows Network Security and Containers, and Windows Update Stack.
