Updated: Microsoft changes the way updates are released for Windows operating systems starting from October 2016

Here is update to my previous post after October patches have been released.

So my hope that there will be two updates has disappeared, there are still around ten security bulletins, but this how it will work from now on for Windows 7 / 8.1 / Server 2012 / Server 2012 R2:

1. There will be a rollup update for all security updates in each month. All subsequent rollups will include previous security fixes since October 2016. This update will be released in second Tuesday.
2. There will be a rollup update for all security and non-security updates in each month. All subsequent rollups will include previous security and non-security fixes since October 2016. This update will be released in second Tuesday.
3. There will be a rollup update for all non-security updates in each month. All subsequent rollups will include previous non-security fixes since October 2016. This update will be released in thirdTuesday.
4. There will be a separate update for Internet Explorer.
5. There will be separate rollup updates for .NET framework one will be security only and second will be security and non-security rollup.
