Microsoft Discontinues Local Experience Packs as CAB Files for Windows 10

Starting in Windows 10 version 1809 "October 2018 Update", Microsoft will discontinue language packs in the CAB format. As you may already know, Windows 10 version 1803, which is the latest stable version of the OS as of this writing,  has introduced Local Experience Packs, also referred to as LXPs. Local Experience Packs are AppX packages delivered via the Microsoft Store that enable users to experience Windows features like the Start Menu, Settings, and File Explorer in the language of their choice. In Windows 10 version 1809, they will replace the classic CAB file format for language packs.
