Welcome to Episode 280 of Observed Tech.

It is official! The Windows 10 Redstone 5 feature update, the sixth feature update for the operating system, will be called the October 2018 Update. This is right in track with the new naming scheme they began tis past Spring with the April 2018 Update for Redstone 4.

We had a good week with build releases for Redstone 5 Fast Ring, The Windows 10 RS5 SDK and Windows Server 2018 Insider Preview however, no Skip Ahead releases for Windows 10 19H1 – the seventh feature update that is expected in the March/April 2019 timeframe.

IFA 2018 is happening over in Europe this weekend and so there are lots of hardware related updates to talk about and explore. Think of IFA as CES but not in Las Vegas.

We also talk several app updates, the confirmation of Xbox All Access and a big change to home based Office 365 subscriptions. Of course, there are all kinds of tidbits sprinkled throughout the show so be sure you listen all the way until the end.

As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
