Here's a look at all of what's new (via MSPU):

  • Xbox Wireless Adapter for Windows – Network adapters: improves reliability of the Xbox Wireless Adapter.
  • Surface Pen Firmware Update – System: improves ink on hover threshold.
  • Surface Pen Integration Device – Human Interface Devices: improves ink on hover threshold.
