Deprecate The Use of The Term "Development Semester"

I don't think Nickel and Copper should be called the 22H1 and 22H2 development semesters, respectively, given that Microsoft has most likely switched to a yearly-based development cycle rather than semester-based with recent internal mentions of Windows 11's 23H2 release being Copper. Some may argue that the development semester is not related to the version number, but it would be very awkward as we get further and further into the future when development semester and the version number diverge (for example, Gallium would be either 23H2 or 25H2). Therefore, I think we should stop using the term "development semester" after Nickel. Charka123 (talk) 00:25, 11 April 2022 (UTC)

I honestly agree 100%. Imagine the mess in the near future once we reach 2024 or 2025! Cliria (talk)
Well, they are called development semesters for a reason... The 22H2 development semester is for the 2023 release, aka 23H2. Same also applies for 22H1, being called 22H2 instead of 22H1. --Icanttellyou (talk) 09:05, 13 April 2022 (UTC)
We can't do much until Microsoft confirms that themselves. It's likely we'll just keep it the same until we have enough proof whether Microsoft did switch to development cycles from development semesters. Jurta (talk • contribs) 16:25, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

Purging Vibranium (Win10 2004 thru 21H2) and Cobalt (Win11) update pages

Closed community portal discussion

This is an archive of a previous community portal discussion. Do not edit it.

To reduce clutter throughout each Windows version's build pages (from VB onwards), I'm holding a vote here to see if anyone's fine with getting rid of the unnecessary update pages for the above mentioned Windows versions, as they do not have any notable changes. The only pages that will be kept (as they feature significant UI changes) are the following:



Let me know what you think about these proposed changes below. - pivotman319 (📫) 18:11, 12 May 2022 (UTC)


  1. Agreed, we should only cover the ones with notable changes. --Ryuzaki (talk | contribs) 18:12, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
  2. I agree, there is no reason to have pages of builds that don’t contain anything important. WaterMelon (talk) 18:22, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
  3. Three's a trio. I'm in favor as there are a ton of unnoteworthy builds and removing some of the update builds is a great start. Xeno (talk) 18:23, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
  4. As the one who began the whole post-GA thing, I fully agree with this. Jurta (talk • contribs) 20:07, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
  5. Boa (talk) 20:51, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
  6. I agree, many of the post-GA builds of Vibranium and Cobalt are nothing more but security updates and quality updates that fix bugs and security issues and they clog up the build lists for those pages. It only makes since to cover post-GA builds that have actual notable changes like the ones listed above. WindowsGuy2021, 3:59, 12 May 2022
  7. I'm pretty sure I have proposed long time ago that any Update RTM builds wouldn't be allowed here (aside from service pack betas and build 6003). Many if not all of these pages deserve to go, otherwise it'd be cluttered with over thousands of pages of Update RTM builds. BF10 (talk) 01:15, 13 May 2022 (UTC)

Purging of cumulative updates of betas (Only for Manganese and up)

I think we should purge all of the cumulative updates of betas in post-20H1 Dev Channel as they do not contain any useful content as well as notable changes. I meant all builds with these labs without notable changes:

  • rs_prerelease_flt
  • fe_release_svc_prod(1-3)
  • fe_release_svc_im
  • co_release_svc_prod(1-3)
  • co_release_svc_im
  • ni_release_svc_prod(1-2)

This proposal excludes all builds from 22000.51 to 22000.184. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk • contribs)

To make things clear, this proposal just includes all updated builds that do not have notable stuff. Of course, we need base builds like 22000.1 or 22621.1. Also I'm going to make the limit of proposal even smaller. It won't include updated builds if they're shared unofficially/illegally. Like 22000.9. Also unleaked updated builds won't be included. I don't think I can make this limit even smaller. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk • contribs)

That is odd. 22572, 22581, 22598, 22616, 22621 has .100 / .200 or .1000 after the build number. 2001:F90:40C0:A072:301C:DDD9:33D:5E67 00:03, 12 August 2022 (UTC)
That's completely false. These builds are late Insider builds. Late Inider builds, GA Escrow and later (?(development semester)_release)always have the minor build number .1 (.0 for early Windows 10 feature updates) if no update is installed. If an update is installed, the minor build number will jump, but the major one will left intact (excludes 22622 because it is basically a fork of 22621 cumulative updates with new feature rolling out). For early Insider builds (rs_prerelease), the minor version number usually fall between 1000-1002. Same as above, if an update is installed, the minor one will jump (1000 -> 1010, 1001 -> 1011 and 1002 -> 1012, I think) and the major one will remain unchanged. For late Insiders builds on GitHub (minor = 1000/1001), I think they come from a special, internal branch. Someone (talk) 03:20, 12 August 2022 (UTC)
1004 also. 10240, 10586, 14393, 17134 based 2001:F90:40C0:A072:9CBA:700B:C41:D6F4 07:58, 12 August 2022 (UTC)



  1. I think it wasn't. So 22621 just based a OS later then May. 2001:f90:40c0:a072:9aa:460c:a255:8787 19:40, 17 May 2022 (UTC+08:00)
  2. I wouldn't say all. Take 22581.100 for example. This "service pipeline" reintroduces tabbed File Explorer. Xeno (talk) 11:32, 17 May 2022 (UTC)
    These can be excluded from this proposal. But rest of them doesn't seem that useful. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk • contribs)
    I'll take 22621.160 as example. It introduced tabs and revamped navigation pane, But, its earlier CU, 22621.(2-4), and it's later CU, 22621.105, does nothing. Someone, 10:01, 28 June 2022
    Then, 22621.160 is fine. But shouldn't 22621.(2-4) or at least 22621.105 be purged since there aren't any notable changes or features? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk • contribs)
    Then take 22621.1 as example. 2001:F90:40C0:A072:187A:BD42:911F:1CCA 03:04, 29 June 2022 (UTC)
    Base builds still need to be included. Just like 22000.1.Someone (talk) 09:30, 7 July 2022 (UTC)
    Take 22598, 22610, 22621 as expmple. 2001:F90:40C0:A072:8970:5C27:12FD:4A2F 02:33, 11 August 2022 (UTC)

Restore Windows 11 build 22000.346 page

Closed community portal discussion

This is an archive of a previous community portal discussion. Do not edit it.
Restored as requested. - pivotman319 (📫) 14:04, 13 June 2022 (UTC)

I don't understand why the page for build 22000.346 was removed as a part of getting rid of post-GA update pages. It actually had some notable changes, including the redesigned fluent emojis and changes to the BSOD color. Some of the pages that had fewer changes were actually kept, such as 22000.282 (which only contained minor tweaks and adjustments) and 22000.526 (only added Microsoft Account page in Settings). Considering that these two post-GA updates were kept, I think 22000.346 should stay too. Charka123 (talk) 20:24, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Yeah, at least unleaked post-GA updates should stay. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk • contribs)

If Copper released a build then the 23H2 page doesn't have that build. So, if make a document, it will be easier. 2001:F90:40C0:A072:6840:4743:E02B:B5F0 06:32, 19 June 2022 (UTC)

Move these pages.

First move

There are 2 windows 2000 builds it was not moved. This is the list of not moved Windows 2000 builds:

2001:f90:40c0:a072:5189:e019:ae56:b207 18:53, 12 May 2022 (UTC+08:00)

Could you also move Windows Live Messenger build 14.0.3921 to Windows Live Messenger 2009 build 3921? The page already exists, but it is a redirect. - (talk) 13:34, 12 May 2022 (UTC)
✔️ Done. --Nara Insider (talk) 11:48, 13 May 2022 (UTC)

Second move

Please, move this page.

And what would happen if we didn't? Seems dumb to set a deadline for a simple move Xeno (talk) 11:57, 14 May 2022 (UTC)
If didn't moved before that time, I will give last 5 days time for you. 2001:f90:40c0:a072:2193:ed23:ccfd:7a64 12:00, 15 May 2022 (UTC+08:00)
✔️ DONE. --Nara Insider (talk) 01:27, 17 May 2022 (UTC)

Third move

There is 1 page and 2 files need to moved.

Pages (Only Xeno)

  1. Microsoft Office XP build 2511 (RC) -> Microsoft Office XP build 2511

Files (Only HawHoo)

  1. File:VirtualBox Windows 2000 20 12 2021 19 35 29.png -> File:2511 WordAbout.png

Merge Service Pipeline updates with their respective build pages.

Windows Insider Service Pipeline updates aren't notable enough to create a new page every time one is released. It'd be better if there was a note on the build's page and would reduce the need to upload a winver image for every pipeline.

They don't include nothing new. The enablement which installed, will update itself to the same version, if you installed a CU that compatible with 19041.
