NEWS for the Linux download scripts, version 2.8

Release date: 2022-11-27
Development branch: master
Supported version: WSUS Offline Update, Community Edition 12.7 (b74r2)

This is a patch for the master development version. Only ten changed files, compared to the current development version at GitLab (12.7 - b74r2) are included in the archive.

New Features

  • Support added for:

    • Windows 10, version 22H2 (build 19041)
    • Windows Server 2022 (build 20348)
    • Windows 11, version 21H2 (build 22000)
    • Windows 11, version 22H2 (build 22621)

    The Windows 11 versions are treated just like Window 10 versions. They are downloaded to the same directory wsusoffline/client/w100-x64/glb. Windows 10 and Windows 11 versions are then sorted into different subdirectories, based on their build numbers.

Internal changes

  • Refactored SDD code, according to WSUS Offline Update - Community Edition - version 12.7 (b43)

  • Simplified the selection of localized .NET Framework downloads

  • Simplified the deletion of two sets of obsolete configuration files (StaticUpdateIds-cpp*.txt and StaticUpdateIds-dotnet5_*.txt)

  • The script syntax-check.bash now checks for shellcheck
    shellcheck is an external command, which integrates nicely in the editor Geany, and which is also used in the script syntax-check.bash. It is not needed for regular usage; but if you like to edit and extend these scripts, then it is highly recommended.


  • The file compatibility.txt was updated to indicate the minimum needed bash version.
