Microsoft is committing to delivering two Windows 10 and two Office client feature upgrades each year, with the target delivery dates being March and September, officials said today, April 20.

Microsoft just released a major Windows 10 update, but the company is still hard at work on even more upgrades. IT systems administrators can roll out the updates on a schedule, keeping up with the latest feature and security updates.

He also talks about making "large-scale, costly wipe-and-replace Windows deployments every few years a thing of the past", which suggests Microsoft is committed to keeping Windows 10 its lead version of Windows for the foreseeable future. So, while Windows 10 Creators Update was arrived in March (it's version 1703), the next update will be Windows 10 Redstone 3 RTM (still has no definitive name) will be version 1709 of the operating system and it should arrive later in September. Consumers, especially enthusiasts and early adopters, will appreciate the steady pace of releases intermixed with the Windows 10 feature update development cycle that Windows Insiders take part in for each upgrade.

Previously, the Windows 10 platform benefited from two or three updates annually. Microsoft dives into all the details on the Office changes here, and the changes to Windows here, so be sure to check it out if you'd like to see the technical aspects. Last year the company had announced that it will adopt an updated model providing users with two updates in a year. Microsoft will also release Windows 10 Redstone 5, thus moving from the current 12 months of support to 18. The same goes for Office 365 ProPlus, Microsoft's productivity suite that lives in the cloud.

The company has also confirmed there will be APIs available for developers whose apps need retooling (ie: get borked) by the new feature. Microsoft felt it needed to clarify this aspect of new Windows 10 releases for the sake of "clarity and predictability to organizations".
