    Now it turns out that a new build has been compiled, with the first signs spotted on a Windows Update page that comprises information about a fix delivered to users as part of the Patch Tuesday rollout.

    Well, I'm crossing my fingers that '17031' has long gone to RTM and that anything with a newer number will be a hotfix.
    Here's a quote from said article:

    The leaked version that reached the web recently via Microsoft’s servers was version number 6.3.9600.17031, which means that a new build has already been compiled and the company is already delivering a fix to machines running it.

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out for those of use already running 17031.

    I made a system image of 8.1 before I ran the leaked 8.1 update, so if need be, I will have to restore that image and run the update once again when the official release comes out. I learned the hard way to never make changes to the OS without a proper back up in place.

    I fail to see what's the rush in installing an update. It isn't gonna change the OS, it's still 8.1 with a few changes. I'd always rather wait and get the official update rather than rush and regret it

    Actually it does change the OS, it adds new features. Features I happen to like and use. If you'd rather wait, then wait. That's not meant to be sarcastic by the way. Some of us managed to find a source for the update and wanted a look see that's all. Most are also already setup with images etc, of their systems before the update was applied so they can undo it fairly easily.

    I'll wait. It broke a few things here, so reverted back.
