If I use the Microsoft Media Creation Tool, will it always create an image
of the very latest stable Windows10 version (i.e. the Anniversary edition & updates)

Only if you wish it to. You can download and create an ISO, OR, you can run in place and install the update without making an ISO.

There is no longer any long term stable ISO for Windows 10. They are changing rapidly. I run in place (yes, I have used the Media Creation Link several times).

As of now, it does. Will it "always" do so in the future? I don't trust crystal balls or fortune tellers, and Microsoft has made no statement guaranteeing that behavior.

Also, nix the "and updates" (after rereading your question.)  so far the media creation tool has consistently had the "current branch" available. But it does *not* slipstream the latest cumulative update on top of that. You will have updates to install in most cases.

Simplifying Server Workload Migrations

This use case outlines the migration challenges that organizations face and how the Acronis AnyData Engine supports physical-to-physical (P2P), physical-to-virtual (P2V), virtual to physical (V2P), and cross-virtual (V2V) migration scenarios to address these challenges.

Yes, and that is why I noted that it changes too rapidly to make an ISO except for very near term purposes.

No, it won't always download the newest Windows 10 iso. If you are using a previous creation tool which you downloaded an year ago, it will download the iso of that period.

If you want the newest iso, then you must also download the creation tool again from the ms site. That way you get the newest tool, and then also the newest iso.

If you use the current Media Link, the ISO or the Run in Place will always be current

Current to the latest branch release. Not to the latest cumulative update.
