Microsoft has released a new set of optional Cumulative Updates for a number of older versions of Windows 10.

New Cumulative Updates are available for Windows 10 version 1809, 1709, 1703, 1607, and 1507 and includes a number of fixes, but seemingly no acknowledged major security patches, though Microsoft is in the habit of slipping these in silently some times.

For those on the Windows 10 October 2018 Update (1809), Microsoft is pushing out KB4512534. This takes the operating system to build 17763.720 and brings the following significant fixes.

  • Updates an issue that prevents Windows Hello face recognition from working after you restart a device.
  • Allows Microsoft Edge to print PDF documents that contain landscape and portrait-oriented pages together correctly.
  • Allows Microsoft Edge to open PDFs that are configured to be opened only once correctly.
  • Updates an issue with downloading copyrighted digital media (music, TV shows, movies, and so on) from certain websites using Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer.

The full changelog includes:

  • Improves the reliability of push notifications about app deployments to Microsoft HoloLens 1 devices.
  • Addresses an issue that prevents Windows Hello Face Authentication from working after a restart.
  • Addresses an issue with downloading digital rights management (DRM) files from certain websites using Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer.

  • Addresses an issue with leaks in Windows notification sockets that causes Windows to run out of ports.
