MiKTeX 2.9.6930 has been released on January 6, 2019.

Release notes

Resetting personal MiKTeX configuration

In order to avoid leftovers, MiKTeX Console learned to reset the personal MiKTeX configuration if MiKTeX was installed system-wide:

This allows users to remove their MiKTeX related installation files before a system administrator completely uninstalls MiKTeX.

Admin mode: blinding out of personal MiKTeX configuration

Prior to MiKTeX 2.9.6930, personal TEXMF root directories were visible (e.g., in MiKTeX Console) when running in administrator mode. This behaviour has been changed: in MiKTeX 2.9.6930 and higher, personal TEXMF root directories are blinded out when running in administrator mode.

Update improvements

The Check for updates operation is much faster now.
