How long can you skip a security cumulative update?

The new non-security patches are described as "cumulative." I take that to mean that installing one of the new non-security patches (such as KB 4016240) will automatically install everything in the previous cumulative update, which may include security patches.

 

Will it be possible to install these new non-security updates without installing the preceding Patch Tuesday security update?

Every update we release is cumulative.  So a new non-security update contains all the previous security and non-security updates; a new security update contains all the previous security and non-security updates.

 

So if your goal is to avoid a particular fix, that would mean never installing another update - every update we release will contain that fix.
