Microsoft Kills Windows 8.1 Update 2 and Patch Tuesday

It’s that time again for Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday, erآ….wait, what? Microsoft will no longer refer to the monthly updates at Patch Tuesday and will be from now on known as Update Tuesday. The biggest news about Tuesday is there is no Windows 8.1 update bundle and improvements to 8.1 will be doled out in monthly increments along with the standard updates.

That's right, it's "Patch Tuesday" no more. As surely as if those two words were never spoken, LeBlanc has changed the name of Microsoft's monthly dump of security fixes to "Update Tuesday," meaning we can expect new features to show up along with our critical patches from now on.
