Microsoft is finally releasing a new build of Windows 10 19H1 to Insiders in the Slow Ring. The company has released a number of new builds to Insiders in the Fast Ring recently, though the ones in the Slow Ring didn’t receive any new builds lately.
The reason behind the lack of new builds in the Slow Ring was due to an issue with the gaming anti-cheat system on Windows 10 causing a GSOD/BSOD. Microsoft had previously said that a majority of users in the Slow Ring were playing games affected by the issue, and so the company decided not to release any new builds to the Slow Ring till the issue was resolved.
(1/2)Many of you are asking why we haven't released a #SlowRing flight in a while. We have a GSOD that's caused by a very common scenario around gaming anti-cheat codes. Unfortunately the fix is in the hands of our 3rd party partner company that we're working with them on…

And even though the issue has not been resolved yet, Microsoft is releasing build 18342.8 to Insiders in the Slow Ring. There is a catch, however: if you play any of these games impacted by the bug, you won’t receive the new build — and Microsoft isn’t saying exactly which games are impacted. And if your PC uses the ZH-CN language, you also won’t be receiving the new build as its apparently causing “many common” Chinese games to crash.
