The Windows 10 Creators Update is now feature complete

The Windows 10 Creators Update, which has been in development since before the Anniversary Update launched back in 2016, is now feature complete. Microsoft today confirmed in its Windows Developer Day livesteam that the Windows 10 Creators Update SDK is feature complete, and I'm hearing the same can be said for the operating system too.

This shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, as it's standard procedure for Microsoft to lock in features a couple months before general availability as it allows the engineering teams to double-down on bug fixing to ensure a smooth release on launch day. 

It's possible that we may see a couple smaller features or changes show up in Insider builds before sign-off in a couple months, but those features are just the last that were locked into the Creators Update. Any new big features planned for Windows will now be scheduled for Redstone 3 or Redstone 4.

Developers can already download the feature-complete SDK from here, and Insiders running the latest Insider Preview builds should be running a mostly feature complete build already. We're now on the final stretch of development, which is very exciting.
