Microsoft has published Windows 10 May 2019 Update (version number 1903). One of the biggest changes versus the previous Windows 10 rollout is that Microsoft is opting for a much less aggressive launch. You can get the update today by manually clicking "Check for Updates" in the Windows Update screen, but an automatic update will not hit most users for at least a couple of months.

Due to all the issues with the previous Windows 10 feature update (1809), Microsoft isn't taking a risk this time. The rollout will be slower and users will receive more control over when and if it gets installed.

Among other things, this new Windows 10 release add a light theme, a Windows Sandbox to easily run software in a virtualized environment, some changes to the Start Menu, the ability to remove more built-in apps, a separation between the search bar and Cortana, variable rate shading support in DirectX, and a lot more.
