New public dashboard for increased issue transparency

One of our core principles is transparency, and we are continuing to invest in clear and regular communications with our customers on status and when there are issues. We will be launching a new Windows release health dashboard later this month that will empower users with near real-time information on the current rollout status and known issues (open and resolved) across both feature and monthly updates. This will build on the Windows 10 Update History page that we currently use. Details for each Windows 10 version will be represented on one page that can easily be searched by keyword, including important announcements, new blog posts, service and support updates and other news. Users will be able to share the content via Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook and email. (The dashboard will also feature Dark mode, the same popular feature users love, that was recently introduced in Windows 10.)
