Microsoft has released a new build of Windows 10 today, version 11099, and you can download it now if you are participating in the Fast ring of the insider program. This build is the first to be released that meets the new criteria for being released, meaning it is much closer to what the company is using internally and may have more bugs.
As expected, this build does not contain big noticeable changes or features as the company has been focusing on improvements to OneCore. But, with that being said, Aul notes that this process is nearing completion and teams will soon be able to begin checking in new features.
Of course, improvements to OneCore could be argued as a big improvement to the operating system as this part of the OS is critical to maintaining stability and future feature improvements.
Below are the known issues with this release:
- Log on for devices using Citrix XenDesktop may be broken. It is recommended that Insiders that use XenDesktop skip this flight by moving to the Slow ring.
- Applications that depend on Adobe Flash may crash upon launch. This will affect some version of Skype, QQ, WeChat, etc. This does not affect Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer.
- With this build, defaults for some applications will be reset. Music & Video will default to Windows Media Player. This can be reconfigured opening Cortana or Search and searching for “Choose default apps by file type” to open the correct settings page.
If you are using a test machine, I don’t recommend installing these builds on a production machine, you can download the new build now. As always, let us know in the comments below if you run into any issues with this release.
