    I know, it really bugs me! Microsoft know the date and time updates are going to be released as it's the same every single month, but yet seem incapable of releasing the documentation at the same time. Dear Microsoft, please release the info the same time you release the updates, so we don't just get this when we click to see what's being updated:

    Store apps are even worse, as most of the time we don't even know what's been changed.
