Microsoft Cumulative Update KB4540673

Microsoft is rolling out some updates today for builds 18362.719 and 18363.719, known as KB4540673. There is also KB4538461 which is an update for older builds (17763.1098). I installed the KB4540673 update on my system this morning and so far I haven’t seen any obvious bugs. I took a look around the inter-webs while putting this together and didn’t see people flaming Microsoft over this update.
