Now what? KB4012215 March Rollup & Just now KB4012218?

OK, nothing on this except it popped up in my win update just now. Does anyone know what is up with MS lately, and why would they have ANOTHER March Rollup?

I am only doing the 'security only' updates, today just finding out IE-11 has an update ( KB4012204 ) for 'security' fixes that are not 'inclusive' to that March KB4012212 OS security rollup!

Just getting to be such a problem with MS and their crazy antics!

It's a preview of next month's rollup.

https://support.microsoft.com/af-za/...er-2008-r2-sp1

This update includes improvements and fixes that were a part of Monthly Rollup KB4012215 (released March 14, 2017). This update also includes these new quality improvements and is a preview of the next Monthly Rollup update.

Key changes include:

Enabled detection of processor generation and hardware support when PC tries to scan or download updates through Windows Update.

Simplified listing of Approved Servers in the Point and Print group policies by allowing wildcards in the server name.

Addressed issue that produces corrupt output when using fread() to read data from a pipe. The runtime will sometimes drop the newlines between lines.

Addressed issue to update time zone information.

Addressed issue with the Local Security Authority Subsystem Service process that crashes on the domain controller when making certain Lightweight Directory Access Protocol requests.

This one update has me greatly concerned as I use Windows 7 Ultimate x64, and cannot stand anything newer and I use a AMD FX™-9590 Eight-Core Processor and its core code name is Vishera using a Socket AM3+ so I probably will not be affected

M$ can be suck d***s to its customers...

It's generally strongly recommended that you do not install preview updates unless you are doing so for a very deliberate purpose in a test environment. They are not intended for the ordinary user.

Why is the KB4012218 considered optional? Is it because I already have the same individual updates installed or is it because they don't apply to my system? And why do they use the word Preview? Is it optional because it's not officially released yet? Like Beta software? All comments that...
