Microsoft reveals that Windows 10 November 2019 Update (version 1909) is nearing completion. In a blog post, Brandon LeBlanc, Senior Program Manager of the Windows Insider Program, writes that Build 18363.418 will likely become the final build. Compared with previous Windows 10 updates, this is a relatively minor update. The Windows 10 November 2019 Update primarily focuses on bug fixes, quality improvements and performance optimizations. An overview of the new features can be found over here.
We are now getting the Windows 10 November 2019 Update (19H2) ready for release. We believe that Build 18363.418 is the final build and we will continue to improve the overall experience of 19H2 on customers’ PCs as part of our normal servicing cadence. Build 18363.418 includes all of the latest 19H2 features as well as the latest fixes included as part of KB4517389. Windows Insiders in the Release Preview ring already have this build, so no action is needed from them to get this build.

As we have communicated previously, the May 2019 Update (version 1903) and November 2019 Update (version 1909) share the same servicing content. That means they share the same Cumulative Update packages. For customers who were given the option to install 19H2, an enablement package is downloaded from Windows Update that turns on the November 2019 Update features. This changes the build number for the OS from Build 18362 to Build 18363. Because they use the same servicing content, the build revision number (the number that comes after the dot) will always match between May 2019 Update and November 2019 Update. Today, customers on the May 2019 Update have Build 18362.418 but Windows Insiders on the November 2019 Update have Build 18363.418.
