No KBs on those yet, any other way to confirm they are the update?

Yep, knowledge base article not out yet, but my friend had told me "X64 about 170MB". So guess this is it. :)

Now Aug Update is out, we got a clearer picture of this Update:

 

For Update1 released in Apr, it is mandatory, and DISM reports a new base version 9600.17031 from the win8.1RTM base version 9600.16384, and anyone who still using 16384 as of to-day, sorry, no more WU support. Simply said : Update1 build 9600.17031 is the real win8.1RTM.

 

But for Aug Update KB2975719, it is optional, and DISM reports the same base version:

MS is always quite serious on their naming policies, so, the Aug Update couldn't be named Update2 because it is different from Update1.

 

From what I heard(take it as rumor), Project Threshold was started as a Update to transform Win8.1 into a so-called Win7SP2(LOL) and would probably be named Win8.2, But now the plan might change, MS might start to roll out the transform features in patch Tuesdays, in which case WinThreshold(Win8.2) might not be required, but I believe there is still not decided yet.

 

Win9 is another story, it is "3 screens and a cloud with Metro", it is still in early development so MS couldn't know if those "Win7SP2 transformations" could also work well in Win9, AFAIK(again, take as rumor), the 1st win9 Preview would appear in early 2015, RTM is expected in Fall 2015. :)

Comes as no surprise, I installed the update last week and it took my system into a boot-loop. Only way to fix it was to reinstall Windows from scratch. Restore and Refresh refused to work. So im glad they pulled it to fix the issue.

I swear to god I am going insane with this, every time there's a Windows update they seem to reset my touchpad driver and the multitouch scroll in Metro apps/UI changes from top-to-bottom to left-to-right. Is there any way to prevent this from happening (or is there an option within Windows to change the scroll behavior)?

I wonder why MS isn't more nuanced in its language in that KB?  Find and uninstall if you show one of the symptoms maybe?

 

Under what conditions do fonts not render properly?

Such boot loops normally caused when you error out the POQ queue by too many pending update operations, and are mitigated when you dism image:d: /revertpendingactions from a WinPE/RE/SE command prompt, complete the operation, reboot and retry the installation.

When the font cache becomes corrupted and the system font suddenly changes by itself from Segoe UI to e.g. Marlett, Symbol or Web/Windings

It seems MS decided to pull August Update 2 KB2975719 off its servers.

O.o

Can you dumb that down like 10 levels lol. I got no idea what any of that means. I understand the build up of pending updates but everything after the words POQ queue is like... "what?" :)
