      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…

      Is there any status update in this? it is very annoying to wait after OSD Task sequence is completed, until the recent updates are installed. Of course most of them are integrated in the OS Image, but this is never 100%. Also this is a issue for Office 2013 / 2016, since update integration is a pain ********** there. The goal of a OSD Task sequence should be to have completely finished machine at the end. Other software deployment tools are able to do this.

          This would be very useful to have. We have most of our standard applications deployed for "all devices with config manager client" and we wondered why the categories that can be set in the application do not show up in softwarecenter.

          Having categories only for user based deployments is very inconsistent, and may confuse users and administrators a lot. Would be great if you can equal this.
