    Microsoft revealed yesterday that it plans to introduce a new update package for Windows 10 and Server 2016 later this year that is more compact for easier and faster deployment.

    The company revealed plans last month to end delta updates in early 2019 in favor of a new system that promises smaller update package sizes and other improvements.

    Yesterday's publication, What's next for Windows 10 and Windows Server quality updates, introduces new terminology for update types on Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016.

    Microsoft calls the new update type Quality Update but refers to existing update types as Quality Updates as well; confusing. The new Quality Update type offers benefits over the current updating types (full, delta, and express) and will become the only update type for new versions of Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 when the second feature update for Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 is released later this year.

    Admins and users affected by the update disasters of the past three or so months might argue that Quality Updates is not the best name for updates; Microsoft may have selected the name to paint updates in a better light.
