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. We have hardware news from IFA 2018 in Europe along with several app updates, the confirmation of Xbox All Access and a big change to home based Office 365 subscriptions.

Welcome to Episode 249 of Observed Tech. This is our special edition everything you wanted to know about the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, new Surface Book 2 hardware, and the Wi-Fi security threat that was recently made public. We are coming to you this episode on a Wednesday because all the Microsoft related software and hardware news is now public after mandatory embargoes lifted earlier this week. That means I can freely talk about my trip to New York City last week for a press briefing from Microsoft without spilling the beans inadvertently. We will catch up on the shipping release of the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, how you can get the update right now, and run over several of the system highlights for this fourth major feature update for Windows 10. I also spend a little bit of time talking about the recently disclosed Wi-Fi WPA2 vulnerability and will discuss my approach to dealing with it in the short and long term. As always enjoy the show and thanks again for listening!
