Considering that starting with the next release of Windows 10, Microsoft will enable the ability to place these types of apps into the store, the timing ripe. The company is also fixing another issue with Internet Explorer would stop working and legacy Document Mode cell is not visible.

Addresses issue where customers receive "Check your account, you don't own this content" errors when attempting to play or install owned content.

There are fixes and security updates for various Windows components.

Addresses issue where, after installing KB4056892, KB4073291, KB4058258, KB4077675, or KB4074588 on a server, you may not be able to access SMB shared files in directory junction points or volume mount points hosted on that server. Restarting Windows Mixed Reality should resolve both issues.

Again, if you don't use Windows Mixed Reality, you don't have to worry about this.

Microsoft has recently worked with the anti-virus (AV) partners on the compatibility with the Windows updates that have now reached a sustained level of broad ecosystem compatibility. After analyzing the available data, we're lifting the AV compatibility check for the March 2018 Windows security updates for supported Windows 10 devices through Windows Update.

We fixed two issues impacting the usability of Windows Mixed Reality on the previous build (Windows Mixed Reality running at a very low frame rate (8-10fps), and a potential crash at startup that could cause Windows Mixed Reality to not work).

The software giant did say there are still some known issues when it comes to antivirus driver compatibility, so a small number of devices may remain blocked. We recommend that customers check installed AV software compatibility with their AV provider.

Note This update isn't available with express installation files for Windows Server 2016.

Security updates to Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Microsoft Windows Search component, Windows Desktop Bridge, Microsoft Graphics component, Windows Kernel, Windows Shell, Windows MSXML, Windows Datacenter Networking, Windows Installer, and Windows Hyper-V. We knew this already, kind of, for all the wonderful things that the Insider Programme has given us, a sense of mystery and wonder isn't one of them. Microsoft did not officially comment yet regarding the company's plans to make Windows 10 S as a part of Windows 10.
