On October 2, 2018, Microsoft announced that the availability of the Windows 10 October 2018 Update. This post will cover what you can expect to see in WSL for the October 2018 Update, Windows 10 version 1809, and from recent Windows Insiders builds. You can find additional information on our detailed release notes.
Mind you, as you can see in the previous news item, 1809 was pulled and hasn’t been rereleased yet. I’m not entirely sure why this blog post detailing these changes is still up without acknowledging that.
