Microsoft Issues Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 16275

It’s been forever since we’ve seen two Windows 10 Insider Preview builds in a single week. But it just happened: Microsoft today announced Windows 10 Insider Preview build 16275.

Yes, build 16273 arrived just two days ago. But there is one major difference between the two builds: While 16273 was available to both the Fast and Skip Ahead rings, 16275 is for the Fast ring only.

“We are now at the point of the development cycle for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update where our focus is now on stabilization for release to the world,” Microsoft’s Dona Sarkar explains. “You’ll notice that this build includes a bunch of good bug fixes Insiders will enjoy.”

Which is another way of saying that this build includes no new features. As promised.

You can check out the Microsoft blog post for what’s fixed. What you can’t read there is a list of known issues. Which, again, is a huge mistake on their part.

    Skip Ahead falls behind! And if you go back to just plain 'ol Fast Ring, you won't be able to Skip Ahead in the future. Which might be okay. If skipping ahead results in losing ground. Or something.

    Maybe they’ll fix the performance issues with the acrylic blur algorithm.

    I dont think its using the GPU.

    Downloading Linux ISOs, using them to install on new VMs, then upgrading packages takes less time than the recent half dozen or so Windows Insider build upgrades. This is the best MSFT can do, is it?

    Maybe they aren't providing a list of known issues to see if we (insiders) see them. If they aren't noticeable, farther down the list they go ;)

    I'm just relieved runtastic works again. Had to rely on my Lumia 625 on 8.1 for the past month as all running apps were broken. No response from feedback hub of course...

    Not sure why the people in the picture are laughing.... can't be Microsoft-related, can it?
