There has been some request and suggestion that when the JScript team feels that there are so many advantages of JScript update which went as part of Windows Script 5.7 release, why this is not being pushed as part of Windows Automatic Update. Well, we do agree that making the JScript DLL (which is part Windows Script 5.7 package) delivered as automatic update will indeed help us in many ways including:
When Microsoft started the concept of automatic update, many items like a bug fix/feature request also made part of this. This lead to some system being broken. So people were generally skeptical consuming the latest updates and be broken. Instead they chose to be vulnerable.
Microsoft as a company has tried its level best to erase this perception. As a result of this only high vulnerable bug fix (security bugs) and similar items are only passed as part of auto-update. This is to make sure that we push things which are extremely of high importance from security/vulnerability point of view. So it's very difficult to push in general bug fixes through auto-update.
However all said the JScript team is looking at this as a priority and we are going to make a case for this. Stay tuned for further updates.
