Since this is a developing story, we do not have concrete details on what is exactly new with this update. We do, however, know based on our past experience covering cumulative updates that this will also mostly, if not completely focused on bugfixes, performance and stability improvements, with the occasional user interface tweak here and there, if any. We will share the detailed changelog in an updated version of this post as soon as we have it.

Windows Clan’s Recommendation: Wait A Bit
We honestly strongly recommend to not be so fast with updating. We expect KB3140741 to have some issues, however minor, which can affect negatively some users. We remember the last update – KB3140743 – caused some issues such as users not being able to access their desktops. It’s better to be safe, than sorry. Plus, it is just a minor update, after all. We’re not talking about a major Redstone update with major new features – you can wait a bit.
We’re downloading KB3140741 as this blogpost is being typed. I will update this post as soon as I have more information. Stay tuned to Windows Clan!
