One of the bigger mysteries in the world of technology these days is whether the leaked build of Windows 8.1 Update 1 is the final RTM version, or is Microsoft still working on the update.
There are voices that it is not, though obviously, it is not all that easy to confirm.
But another hint has surfaced that says that the build Microsoft accidently leaked last week is not actually the RTM version that we have all been expecting — a new build seems to have been compiled, one with a different build number.
As this report on Neowin states, a hotfix released on Patch Tuesday that addresses blurry video previews on camera apps in Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 is being delivered to a large number of Windows 8.1 version.
Among these is one that has a build number 6.3.9600.17042.
The leaked version that hit the web recently was obviously build 17031, meaning that Microsoft has compiled a new build. Of course, no one (apart from the people involved) can tell whether this is true, or whether this version comes with any substantial change or not.
Let’s just say BUILD 2014 cannot come here sooner, and call it a day.
