Microsoft issues first hefty Windows 10 update.
Quote
Microsoft today delivered the first large-sized update for Windows 10, a "servicing update" that weighed in at around a third of a gigabyte.  The update, labeled KB3081424 in Microsoft's identifying scheme, has been pushed not only to Windows Insiders -- those who opted in to the firm's preview program -- but also to everyone who has upgraded to the new OS since its launch last week.

Since all updates to Windows 10 are cumulative, only the updates that apply to each system are installed.  Thus,

August 5, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3081424 also included
July 29, https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3074683 which included
July 25 https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3074681.

Thus, with July 29 being the previous cumulative update, looking at updates since then there are several dated July 30.  One for example, is KB3074678 but that KB article doesn't exist since the update has apparently now been incorporated in the most recent cumulative update from yesterday, KB 3081424.

The -02Aug additions to the cumulative update appear to be related to Cortana and Bing -- with Cortana essentially being part of Bing.

So, "SR1" really isn't a big deal.  With so many systems upgraded from Windows 7/8.1 since July 29, the cumulative update provides everything at one time instead of multiple updates.  Taking it further, since Pro/Enterprise can delay updates, it will be much easier to test cumulative updates than dozens of individual updates.
