Windows 10 20H2 is released, here are the new features
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/microsoft/windows-10-20h2-is-released-here-are-the-new-features/

Interesting how they can call it a Feature Update when there really aren't any major feature updates.
Quote from: extract
20H2 Update is not a huge release and it does not bring a major overall to key features of Windows 10, but Microsoft says this update comes with a lot of improvements that should improve overall user experience.

But then this is just Bleeping Computers interpretation.

Upgraded here from 2014 to 20H2 and all well. Almost a non event, total time under 10 minutes and nothing whatsoever seems to have changed.

By all accounts (in some previous links about the upcoming 20H2 feature update), there isn't that much in this update.

The strange thing (for me that is) it is sitting there in my Optional updates waiting for me to download it. 

This is strange in that for every Feature update from 1903 I had to wait months (and on occasion download it directly) for the 'your system isn't yet ready notice' and 'you don't have to do anything.' 

So here we are with the shoe on the other foot, its waiting for me to download it.  I think I will wait for a while or it won't feel right ;)

Hi Bob, guess nobody dares to update after you said it's ruining your systems. ;D ;)

I'm in no rush, given there is nothing major like previous feature updates.

ClassicShell is no longer being developed or supported.

Open-Shell has continued the project and works on the latest version of Windows 10 20H2
You can download it from here, https://github.com/Open-Shell/Open-Shell-Menu/releases/tag/v4.4.160
