          Additional information from Microsoft:

    A preview of the monthly quality rollup

    • An additional monthly rollup containing a preview of new non-security fixes that will be included in the next monthly rollup, as well as fixes from all previous monthly rollup.  This can also be called the “preview rollup.”
    • This preview rollup will be released on the third Tuesday of the month (also referred to as the “C week”).
    • This will be published to WSUS using the “Updates” classification as an optional update.  It will also be available via Windows Update (where all consumer PCs will install it) and on the Windows Update Catalog.
    • With WSUS, you can enable support for “express installation files” to ensure that client PCs only download the pieces of a particular monthly rollup that they haven’t already installed, to minimize the network impact.
    • Starting in early 2017 and continuing for several months, older fixes will also be added to the preview rollup, so it will eventually become fully cumulative; installing the latest monthly rollup will then get your PC completely up to date.
    • This (like all updates) will have a unique KB number.
