Configuration Manager and Windows ADK for Windows 10, version 1607

If you are using Configuration Manager and you are planning to deploy Windows 10, version 1607, This page explains the support matrix for Configuration Manager versions and Windows 10 versions. 
The Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK) for Windows 10, version 1607, is available on the Microsoft Hardware Dev Center (adksetup.exe file version 10.1.14393.0).
The newer ADK is only needed if deploying Windows 10, version 1607
MS have limited support for Windows 10, version 1607, in Configuration Manager version 1602. Users who are still on this version of Configuration Manager and will be deploying the newer version of Windows 10 can upgrade the ADK to the latest version if desired, or remain with the prior version, Windows ADK for Windows 10, version 1511. Beyond that, MS do not support deployment of Windows 10, version 1607, with older versions of Configuration Manager. So the need for this new version of the Windows ADK does not apply.

1 The Windows ADK for Windows 10, version 1511, provides basic forward compatibility and can be used for image capture, image apply, driver injection, and offline update servicing of Windows 10, version 1607, if absolutely necessary. We strongly recommend upgrading to the latest ADK version, but basic forward compatibility is supported during the transition period.
