Windows 10 build 10586.104 rolls out, as Microsoft launches new 'Update History' site

Microsoft has released a new update for Windows 10, its third this year, following the rollout of build 10586.63 in mid-January, and 10586.71 a couple of weeks later.

This latest release for Windows 10 PCs not enrolled in the Insider Program bumps the build up to 10586.104. As the incremental increase in build number suggests, this is a cumulative update to previous releases from the Threshold (TH2) development branch; newer builds from the Redstone branch are currently available only to those on the Windows Insider Program.

With today's release, Microsoft has finally reversed its decision to avoid providing detailed changelogs for these relatively minor cumulative updates. The company has launched a new 'Windows 10 Update History' site, giving a clear breakdown of what each such update includes. As it explains:

We're committed to our customers and strive to incorporate their feedback, both in how we deliver Windows as a service and the info we provide about Windows 10. In response to this feedback, we’re providing more details about the Windows 10 updates we deliver through Windows Update. You'll see a summary of important product developments included in each update, with links to more details. This page will be regularly refreshed, as new updates are released.

Today's update, which is identified as KB3135173, includes the following changes:

  • Fixed issues with authentication, update installation, and operating system installation.
  • Fixed issue with Microsoft Edge browser caching visited URLs while using InPrivate browsing.
  • Fixed issue that didn't allow simultaneous install of apps from the Windows Store and updates from Windows Update.
  • Fixed issue that delayed the availability of songs added to the Groove Music app in Windows 10 Mobile.
  • Improved security in the Windows kernel.
  • Fixed security issues that could allow remote code execution when malware is run on a target system.
  • Fixed security issues in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11 that could allow code from a malicious website to be installed and run on a device.
  • Fixed additional issues with the Windows UX, Windows 10 Mobile, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, and taskbar.
  • Fixed additional security issues with .NET Framework, Windows Journal, Active Directory Federation Services, NPS Radius Server, kernel-mode drivers, and WebDAV.

If you're upgrading to the new build today, let us know how you get on with the installation.
