Redstone Builds

Microsoft With Another Dual Build Release

Boy, Windows Insiders sure have been busy lately! Microsoft is here again with another quick one two, as the company has released two builds for testers to try out.

This follows the rollout of Windows 10 build 17733 to the Fast ring earlier in the week, which officially finalized the dark mode for File Explorer.

And today, the company has followed it up with build 17735 for Fast ring, along with build 18214 for Skip Ahead.

These new versions don’t bring any notably new features, but they do fix and refine a bunch of things, and moves the development further on their respective channels and branches. Speaking of channels, perhaps the Slow ring can see some action too, now?

Anyway, getting back to the releases, build 17735 is the latest Redstone 5 preview and it does not have any new feature.

A good sign, because we are now about a month away before this version is finalized. And at this point in time, Microsoft should be working on refinements and fixes, aiming at new features for the Skip Ahead channel instead.

Speaking of, build 18214 is the preview for the next feature update for the operating system, codenamed 19H1. It is not due to be out until spring, though, so this version is also rather low when it comes to new features and options.

But the Windows 10 preview train keeps chugging along.

If you are testing Redstone 5 builds, things should start to get more and more stable now. And if you are in for what’s next for the OS, then expect some action on the 19H1 front soon.
