Since Microsoft first launched Windows 10 back in July 2015, it has been proactively delivering new updates to provide improvements and enhancements. Even though, updates are great to patch and make Windows 10 more secure, many users have complaint of Microsoft lack of communication informing what new changes are coming with every new Windows Update.

In order to address the issue, today, on yet another Patch Tuesday, the software giant has launched the Windows 10 Update history site, which identical to the Surface Update History homepage, is the hub where users can visit to learn what’s new on every new update that rolls out to Windows 10.

The company notes on the new Windows 10 Update History website: “In response to this feedback, we’re providing more details about the Windows 10 updates we deliver through Windows Update.”

The new site will include important summary of product development with links to more technical details, and the logs will be updated regularly as new updates roll out to devices.

While more regular users won’t find this new approach useful, it can be a source of information for savvy users and IT professionals.

It’s worth pointing out that Microsoft will only be providing update information for updates that roll out to the official public release of Windows 10. The new site is not meant to show details on updates for Windows 10 Insider Preview builds.

Today, it also happens to be Patch Tuesday day, and on February 9th, Microsoft is listing two new updates one for Windows 10 version 1511 described as KB3135173, which brings the operating system to build 10586.104 to address issues on authentication, Microsoft Edge, Windows Store apps, and the Groove Music app.

And there is also a new update for Windows 10 (original) described as KB3135174 that brings the operating system to build 10240.16682 to fix installation issues, Microsoft Edge, and a number of other problems.
