          I’m updating the status. For 1606 we’ve made some changes, listed below.
          As more are added we’ll update what Tech Preview/Release they appear in.

          Timeout scan is now configurable
          We added a new task sequence variable to allow a configurable timeout for scan. Variable name is SMSTSSoftwareUpdateScanTimeout, default is 30 minutes. Value is set in seconds so an hour is 60×60=3600

          Logging changes
          In the SMSTS.log we list the log files to check for updates download and evaluation.
          These are UpdateDeployment.log, UpdatesHandler.log, WUAHandler.log and WindowsUpdate.log

          New Option for full scan
          There’s a new checkbox added to the Install Updates step – ‘Evaluate software updates from cached scan results’
          If the checkbox is on we use cached results, if the checkbox is off we do a full scan
          Task Sequences that are upgraded will have this option checked on – this is parity with the existing behavior

          Power management changes…

          The Documentation here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm/osd/understand/task-sequence-built-in-variables

          for this variable gives no indication that the value should be set in seconds, as opposed to minutes.
