"Windows 10, version 1607 is our third Windows 10 feature update released. Based on feedback from organisations moving to Windows 10, this will be our last feature update for 2016, with two additional feature updates expected in 2017," the company wrote in a blog.

According to Windows Central, while the first major update for 2017--codenamed Redstone 2--would release in the early part of 2017, the second one--codenamed Redstone 3--might be released in 2017 summer.

This update pattern is similar to the one that the Threshold update wave followed. Much like Threshold 2 was to Threshold 1, Redstone 3 is likely to be a much smaller update compared to Redstone 2.Microsoft is currently in the middle of Redstone 2 development with the latest internal builds now being compiled around the 14900 range, the report said.
