    Windows 10 media refresh (1511.2) - April 2016
    Published Date: 5/2/2016

    ​In early May 2016, Microsoft plans to release a full media refresh of Windows 10 editions to support the release of Windows 10 Current Branch for Business (CBB). The scope of this release includes Windows 10 Home, Windows 10 Professional, Windows 10 Internet of Things (IoT) Core, and Windows 10 IoT Core Pro.


    Note for Embedded partners: There are no changes to the Windows 10 IoT Core Pro Licensing XML file with this refresh release.
    Details for Royalty and ODM partners

    ​The April 2016 full media refresh of Windows 10 products will include all updates that have been released for Windows 10 in the period between the release of Windows 10 November update version 1511 (in November 2015) and March 8, 2016, including both security-related and non-security-related updates.

    The media refresh will not include any updates that are not available separately, nor will it include any new features. The media refresh will contain the same bits as a master image created by OEM partners using all updates released since the Windows 10 release to manufacturing (RTM) in July 2015. The April Media Refresh also includes the following additional updates beyond those that were included in the version 1511.1 release:

    Cumulative Update KB3140768
    Dynamic Update KB3142588
    Servicing Stack Update KB3139907
    Setup Dynamic Update KB3140744
    Adobe Flash Update KB3144756


    The media refresh streamlines the manufacturing process by including the updates in one OEM Preinstallation Kit (OPK). If OEM partner images are currently based on Windows 10 November update version 1511 plus subsequent services packages and monthly supplement releases, there is no need or program requirement to use to the media refresh. The refresh will not include Windows Kits (Assessment and Deployment Kit [ADK], Software Development Kit [SDK], Windows Driver Kit [WDK]) or a separate ISO of inbox applications.

    Microsoft is using the Windows 10 1511.2 release designation to identify this media refresh. Note that this does not constitute a new version of Windows.

    Another set of f*cking useless ISO's that contain a few files which are already outdated adding no benefit and adding to the ISO madness that already exists.

    I think I'll sleep through this one.

    At least this time answering the rumors of it containing new features is clear, it's only an updated 10586.0 :)

    "Lets try and look like we are doing something" for the shareholders.

    I already have 578GB of Windows 10 ISO's. Time to compact them a bit with svf next week, insane...

    I store all mine on a server Windows 2012 R2 (DataCenter ;)) with data deduplication - so it cleans up all M$ duplicated sh*te.

    You can even create a VHD, mount that and enable Dedup support on it. Might be the way to go. Less time consuming that making hundreds of SVF's whenever M$ wish to waste some bandwidth and disk space.

    On a side note, who else thinks M$ is getting a back hander from ISP's who sell more high speed connections and hard drive manufacturers ...

    I have considered the Dedup thing, but seems like a hassle running a server just for that. I think as long as I svf multiple languages into just one, I should be OK with space for a while. The 578 -> around 220GB I think

    Currently sorting all the 8 stuff, which I finally got complete a while ago, thanks to a few files from you :clap:

    AFAIK Zpaq is a crompression apps like RAR, ZIP etc. and not a duplicator! Isn't it?
