As with every endpoint rollout released after version 8.0.2039.x, it is important to mention, that once enough feedback is collected and no problems are observed with this build (30-60 days), you can expect to be informed about the readiness and schedule of the microPCU (micro Program Component Update), that will be offered to all 8.0.x endpoints depending on their individual configuration.
