Based on the data and the feedback we’ve received from consumers, OEMs, ISVs, partners, and commercial customers, Windows 10, version 1809 has transitioned to broad deployment. With this, the Windows 10 release information page will now reflect Semi-Annual Channel (SAC) for version 1809. We will continue to communicate for future releases the transition from targeted to broad deployment status.

According to our  lifecycle policy, Windows 10 Enterprise and Windows 10 Education, version 1809 will be serviced for 30 months from its November 13th release date. End of support information for Windows 10 releases can be found in the Windows lifecycle fact sheet.

In addition to publishing monthly media refreshes for Visual Studio Subscriptions, this month’s updated media will also be available in the Volume License Servicing Center on April 2, 2019.
