It appears that the name of the upcoming feature update for Windows 10 is finally known through the official Edge browser landing page which is shown upon completing the update to build 17134, and that is - as shown above - named as the 'April update', I stumbled on it when updating my laptop to build 17134, which was released to the Slow and Release Preview rings on Friday.

 

An earlier report here on Neowin had suggested the official name would be the "April 2018 update", because a Microsoft employee says it in a video that was discovered by Twitter user WalkingCat earlier this week.

Over on WindowsLatest, Mayank Parmar discovered that the Microsoft Edge browser recently received a server-side update in the Redstone 4 builds, with the browser now displaying the updated welcome page, confirming the 'April update' nomenclature. The welcome page promotes features of the April update, including Windows Timeline. You can view it yourself here.

 

In any case, Microsoft still hasn't announced the official name in any official blog posts for Redstone 4 build announcements. As a reminder, previous suggestions of the name for this update were: Spring Creators Update, Spring Update, and most recently, the April 2018 Update.

 

The last time Microsoft used a month name in a feature update for Windows 10 was with the first major feature update for the OS, version 1511, which ended up being called the November update, released in 2015.

So we have gone from 'Spring Update' to 'April Update'. The naming convention is atrocious.  Good thing Microsoft doesn't make cars, we need to bring our Windows cars in for a patch every few months.

Not allowed to change their minds about things huh? I can see why MS wouldn't hire you for anything.

"April update"? Hopefully Microsoft will (eventually?) discover that there's an April every year, and start adding the year to the version name. :rolleyes:

 

Better than the dumb northern-hemisphere specific "Fall" and "Spring" nonsense that's "Spring" and "Autumn" respectively in the southern hemisphere. And "Fall" is "Autumn" outside North America.

 

Really don't much care though, happy here in Windows 8.1 land for the foreseeable future. :)

Absolutely no matter what the name is, it does not put it to work better.
As long as they will not do any basic and principle changes, there will not go to better nothing, never. It's dead system, it's history, but Microsoft till now cannot understand it. There should be principle changes, but not only cosmetically changed XP.
