Microsoft adds Edge to the Microsoft 365 Enterprise Roadmap site, pre-announced Edge Stable release dates:
Microsoft has started pushing out the new Edge to enterprise customers, which means companies have joined the 6-weekly release rollercoaster all Edge Stable users have been part of these last few months.

Enterprise IT admins, however, crave predictability, and to help them out Microsoft has added Edge to the Microsoft 365 Enterprise Roadmap site, and pre-announced different Edge channel release dates for the Beta and Stable channel.

The Microsoft 365 roadmap portal lets you view upcoming Microsoft Edge enterprise features—you can filter by “Microsoft Edge” in the Products field, or by “Beta channel” and “Stable channel” in the Release Phase field.

The Microsoft Edge team plans to push public updates to the Beta and Stable channels every six weeks. The release schedule gives you the target release week for the major releases of Beta & Stable channels.
The Microsoft Edge roadmap entries can be found here, and the release schedule can be found here.

Today I got a Microsoft Edge update to version 84.0.522.48. No changelog yet....
Good thing is, when MS started rolling updates as rolling release, some users didn't receive any update even after couple of days of releasing. But now I'm seeing that it doesn't update automatically right after a update is released but it does if I check for updates manually. This is a positive change.

The question is how long until it does it automatically now?

It used to update whenever I launched it and there was a new update. This time it didn’t and I was surprised. Chrome actually didn’t update automatically either. Firefox updated automatically, I guess they have much lower server load.
Hmm server load is also a valid reason I think. In my case, Edge and Firefox none updated automatically. I had to go to the about page and then they checked for an update.
