In anticipation of some questions that you may have about this release (or MDT in general):
The Inevitable Current Branch Versioning Soup Question; some variation of, “is this only supported with ADK/Win10/SCCM version X”?
We primarily tested this build of MDT with the configuration listed above. Anything outside of that will have a high probability of still working, but your mileage may vary as we haven’t explicitly tested other combinations.
When is the next planned release of MDT?
We do not currently have a timeframe. We will release any tactical changes as needed which may be required to support new builds of Windows 10 or Configuration Manager.
Is this the last release of MDT?
No, we will continue to iterate and invest in the product.
