Magnet links are out.
 
Reminder:
 
If you intend to install the update to your running win8.1, make sure you set a restore point, you may need to uninstall it 
- If it's too buggy
- It may be required to uninstall for installing new leaks or the final version.
 
WZOR confirms it can be un-installed

Do you have it up and running yet? There seems to be a way to bring up the taskbar in metro apps and the start screen with some new mouse gesture at the bottom of the screen.

Sorry, not yet, too late for me last night, and this morning going to China.

 

Here's a video from @Bavo, hope it has what you wish to know.  :)

Yup, it does, you can now get the taskbar in metro apps and on the start screen but I'm guessing this will only happen if you pick to show them running on the taskbar but we'll see how it goes.

Well, no, just installed the update to my Enterprise, without modern apps showing on taskbar, and I still get the taskbar in apps screen - convenient when I wish to change to desktop applications.  :)

 

One interesting thing: I have win8.1Pro X64, installed all official rollup/updates, but not the leaked update(it's my main OS, so will wait for the official release), DISM shows 9600.16384

But for the Enterprise, DISM shows 9600.16610:

 

screen_221_zpse477a90c.jpgIt seems, win8.1+2014 update is treated as a new edition, something like a SP, although it doesn't get a new build no. 9601(like win7SP1 is build 7601).

Maybe it'll update when it's final?

Because Winows 8.1 Update 1 isn't a Service Pack. Service Packs contain all previous updates, Update 1 doesn't. Anyway, I'm very surprised no big sites have mentioned the new developer tools in IE11, the Improved WebGL and ECMAScript 5.1 support, etc.

I'm surprise the typical HTML5 moaning hasn't kicked in yet. Guess they don't expect anything new since it's not IE12 or something.

Unlikely, win7SP1 builds were given 7601 when the very first build was started. :)

I know, it's not a SP by definition, but my point is it gets the status of a new version.

 

 

..... btw, it you have installed the previous leak, don't install the MSU on it, DISM reports 9600.16596 and will fail the installation.

Shame, downloaded the files, but double-clicking on them to update gives me a 'This update is not applicable for your computer' error.
By the looks of it, you gotta go through a very confusing process of adding it to a disc image and stuff. 
Might give it a miss unless theres a easy way to get it working :)

I'm starting to think we could see a update 2 before the year ends that will bring more changes before we start to see builds of Windows 9.

Over here, I can just install it on any Windows 8.1 machine. Perhaps you're missing other updates?
