In a recent blog post, Microsoft explains that Windows Feature Experience Packs will be used to ensure quick improvements and bug fixes for standalone functions developed independently of the main operating system.
“We are testing a new process to provide our customers with new feature enhancements outside of the major Windows 10 feature updates. Through the Windows Feature Experience Packs, we can improve certain features and experiences that are now developed independently of the operating system. Currently, only a limited number of features have been developed in this way, so we are starting to work in a very focused way, ”explains Microsoft.
