Upcoming change to release schedule for non-security Office updates

Quote:
We want to let you know about an important change coming to the release schedule for Office updates so that you can plan accordingly. Until now, both security and non-security updates have been released on the second Tuesday of each month. Starting in April, the non-security updates will be released in Microsoft Update and the Windows Server Update Service (WSUS) on the first Tuesday of the month, which is April 5 in this case. This will include all updates that have the Critical or Definition classification. Updates with the Security classification will continue to release on second Tuesday as usual.

I wonder if that will decrease the excessive time Windows searches for updates on Patch Tuesdays as some users have experienced with W7 lately. Guess we'll find out...

I'm sure the update system can't get much worse :)

I just checked WU and i have 4 important Office 2010 updates available that were published yesterday (2016-05-05).
I don't know how long it took WU to check for these, i didn't manually check WU to see what is available for me.
