Microsoft rolls out Windows 10 build 10586.29 for PCs, matching latest Mobile release

Microsoft today released another cumulative update to version 1511 of Windows 10 on PCs. KB3116900, as it's known, has the following changes:

  • 3119075 MS15-135: Security update for Windows kernel mode drivers to address elevation of privilege: December 8, 2015
  • 3116130 MS15-133: Security updates for Windows RMCAST to address elevation of privilege: December 8, 2015
  • 3116162 MS15-132: Security updates for Windows to address elevation of privilege: December 8, 2015
  • 3104503 MS15-128: Security updates for Microsoft graphics component to address remote code execution: December 8, 2015
  • 3116178 MS15-126: Security updates for Microsoft VBScript and JScript to address remote code execution: December 8, 2015
  • 3116184 MS15-125: Cumulative security update for Microsoft Edge: December 8, 2015
  • 3116180 MS15-124: Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer: December 8, 2015

Accompanying KB3116900 are a number of security patches and updates for Internet Explorer, Windows Defender, and the web browser's built-in malware protection. Interestingly, while even Adobe seems to have given up on Flash, Microsoft still has to continue support for the archaic web platform.

The update brings the build number of the PC chain up to 10586.29, the same as the latest Windows 10 Mobile build, which Microsoft made available to Windows Insiders a few days ago.

Earlier today, Microsoft released the same build as its first general update to the mobile OS for those not on the Insider program; 10586.29 is now rolling out to the Lumia 550, 950 and 950 XL - the only Windows 10 Mobile devices currently available - around the world.
