KB5012592 is out in the wild with new improvements, fixes, and security improvements. Here is the direct link to download KB5012592 offline installer.
Microsoft finally released a new cumulative update for all Windows 11 users. The good thing is that this cumulative update contains all the improvements and fixes in the last optional update, KB5011563. Along with everything in the optional update, the KB5012592 also has some security improvements and patches.
If you have installed the previous optional update, this update will install only the security patches. Otherwise, the whole list of improvements, fixes, features, and security patches will be applied to your system with the KB5012592 update.
When it comes to security, it contains a lot of small and miscellaneous security patches that improve the overall Windows 11 situation in terms of security and safety. Unfortuantly Microsoft did not elaborate on what those miscellaneous security patches are.
As for the regular improvements and fixes, there are a lot of them. Some of them include but are not limited to vaiorus Windows components like the active directory, DNS, NetBIOS, File Explorer, registry editor, group policy editor, and more.
As I told earlier, the KB5012592 update also includes a new feature. It called the Search Highlights. As the name implies, the new feature should improve the over all search experience in the Start menu with additional information from the web.
Being a security update, KB5012592 is mandatory to install. That means, Windows 11 should automatically download and install the update as soon as it is available to your computer. If not, you can manually download the KB5012592 offline installed using the links given below.
