No more Windows Dynamic Updates in WSUS? (And elsewhere?)

WSUS on WS2019. Workstations are all W10 v22H2.

I am seeing in WSUS MMC that since March 2023--

  1. A monthly "Windows 11...yyyy-mmB" upgrade is offered
  2. The last Windows 11, version 22H2 upgrade dated 20 Sep 2022, W11 v22H2 2023-03B upgrade and, effective today, W11 v22H2 2023-04B upgrade, now showing as superseded.
  3. No new Dynamic Updates are offered.

My best guess is that Dynamic Updates are now included with monthly W11 feature updates, or are applied automagically during install, and therefore, Dynamic Updates are obsolete and will no longer be offered. Is that close?

I've searched for announcements around this but haven't found it. Even the much-hyped Bing Chat sez, "I couldn’t find any information about whether monthly Windows 11 updates released to WSUS now include Dynamic Updates. Is there anything else you would like to know?" Is this documented? (Not Bing Chat's failure...the Dynamic Update question :)

    Hello,

    This official article explains the whole situation regarding the "new" update delivery, which includes transitioning from Dynamic Updates to the UUP Unified Update Platform (UUP) servicing from March 20th.

    What’s UUP? New update style coming next week!
