Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 15060: RC2?

Microsoft surprised Fast ring testers last night with yet another last minute build of the Windows 10 Insider Preview. And yes, of course there are no new features.

Indeed, there’s precious little information about this build at all. You may recall that I referred to the previous build, 15058, which shipped just two days prior, as what we might have called a Release Candidate in days past. Well, let’s call this one—build 15060—Release Candidate 2, or RC2. You know, just for laughs.

Anyway, build 15060 contains a number of fixes, none major. You can see the full list at the Microsoft blog post.

There is likewise a short list of known issues. Nothing serious.

If I were to guess—and I pretty much have to—this build was really released to address an issue where some Insiders couldn’t complete the installation of the previous build.

    xbox pass beta ending for all testers in April 7.  Could it be connected for RS2?

    I may be putting a hold on Insider builds for a few days. 15058 is stable and good. I'd rather not go through five more builds in two weeks.

    This build didn't fix my "some updates where cancelled" problem. Trying the Regedit.

    Edit: I can confirm that the Regedit fixed my problem. Installing 10560 now.

    Ahh..the path to Terminus.

    Another "RC" release and no slow or preview ring still?  I'm a little concerned.

    Well so long as they have tested it against Web Cams, Kindle etc this time around.

    Its not obvious to normal people what compelling features this Creators upgrade has over the 'Anniversary edition' from last year.   Are there any, or is it just a lot of bug fixes ?

    Then what, pray tell, do we call 10561 that I am now downloading? RC3???,
