Windows for IT Pros: Windows 10 Version 1607 media for businesses released, support for build 10240 ending in March #branchprogression #eol #WinTenOld

 

Hi all,

 

If you are running build 10240 (Version 1507/RTM) and are using Current Branch for Business (CBB/defer upgrades channel), you won’t receive new updates after March 26, 2017. This does not apply if you are using Version 1507 LTSB (long-term servicing branch), which should be none of us. This does not mean discussion of that build will cease on this forum and subgroups.

For archive watchers: I’m using the following tags:

 

  • #BranchProgression: reserved for announcements where a build moves from one servicing branch to the next. This hashtag is used when a new feature upgrade build is certified (moving from Insider Preview to consumers), when a CBB is declared (from consumers to businesses), and when a feature upgrade no longer receives support after a grace period (like this post).
  • #EOL (end of line): reserved for messages like this post. When #EOL is declared, expect a new entry in our group calendar that informs you when the updates will no longer be available for a specific Windows 10 release (you’ll see an example of this later today).
  • #WinTen1507: this is the first and the last time this version tag (for build 10240) will be used. For new members, whenever a major news about a Windows 10 release must be made, #WinTenYYMM hashtag is used (for example, #WinTen1607 to denote Anniversary Update/build 14393). The official version tag for Creators Update will be used once the next version tag is confirmed (don’t trust all rumors out there).

 

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph

 

Hi,

 

Follow-up: support for build 10240 (Version 1507) will be provided until May 2017. For now, the EOL date for this build will be set as May 9, 2017 (May 2017 Update Tuesday). Expect an updated post from forum calendar regarding this change. Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph
