Here's what's included in last week's Surface Book firmware updates

Last week on Friday, Microsoft released a series of driver updates for its Surface Book. There was no changelog published at the time - which is sadly far from unusual - but the company has updated its Surface Update History page today.

Interestingly, there doesn't seem to be any updates for the Surface Pro 4. Firmware for Microsoft's high-end tablet is typically released in parallel with the Book, although it would appear that that is not the case this time, or the company simply hasn't updated the Update History page for the Pro 4 yet, which seems likely, given Microsoft's continuing struggle to post details of its updates in a timely fashion.

Here's what got updated on the Surface Book:
