New Windows 10 Insider builds just aren’t stopping. On September 5, Microsoft released a new Windows 10 October 2018 Update build, shortly following up with a new Windows 10 19H1 build on September 6. And now, Redmond has released another Windows 10 October 2018 Update to Insiders in the Fast Ring.
It’s only a matter of time till we get to the final Windows 10 October 2018 Update build at this rate, to be honest. Today’s build, 17755, only includes 3 bug fixes and 2 known issues, which means we aren’t too far away from the release of the final release candidate. Here’s the list of things that have been fixed in today’s build:
- The build watermark at the lower right-hand corner of the desktop is no longer present in this build. This does not mean this is the final build as we are not done yet. We’re just now beginning the phase of checking in final code to prepare for the final release.
- We fixed an issue resulting in slower resume from hibernation on certain devices in the last few flights.
- We fixed an issue resulting in HDR video being unexpectedly clipped in certain situations.
- We fixed an issue resulting in Windows Hello spending more time in the “Getting Ready” state in recent builds.
If you are an Insider in the Fast Ring, you can get the new Windows 10 build right away from Windows Update. This build, or a recent/upcoming build, will likely head to those in the Slow Ring sometime soon. And soon after, we should see the update on the Windows Insider program’s Release Preview program. Keep in mind, Microsoft’s hardware event is on the 2nd of October, and even though Microsoft is yet to announce the official release date for the Windows 10 October 2018 Update, I suspect it will be available right before the hardware event, ready all those delicious new hardware.
