Microsoft Starts New Windows 11 Patch Day Preview

Microsoft has provided a new build for Windows 11 Version 22H2. It is a cumulative optional update, presumably with changes to be distributed as part of Patch Day February.

There is currently not much information about the changes in the new update KB5022360. The release is now in the Release Preview channel for users of Windows 11 version 22H2. The new build number is 22621.1192. There is currently no information about the contents of this update in the Knowledge Base, but there is information in the Windows Blog.

It says Microsoft is fixing some known bugs. This includes a bug that, under certain circumstances, led to the inability to log in or out. Another bug concerned possible deadlocks in connection with COM+ applications. We have listed the other bug fixes at the end of this post.

New update behavior starts

The new preview version is also interesting in terms of innovation. Microsoft writes that the way they preview .NET Framework updates has changed: “After you install this update, all future (optional) .NET Framework preview updates will be available on the Settings > Windows Update > Advanced Options > Optional updates displayed. This page allows you to control which optional updates you want to install.”

The latest build is currently available for the Windows Insider Release Preview channel.
