Public Release of next Windows 10 version was expected earlier in April. Microsoft had released a Windows 10 Redstone Preview Build 17133 which was believed by many to be the release to manufacturers RTM build. Later on, a blocking bug was discovered which caused the company to delay the release of its latest build to the public.
There are several reports appearing online since last week that Microsoft is working on a new build to fix that blocking bug. Now. the company has released Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 17134 from the Redstone 4 branch to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring. Microsoft also said that this build carries feature which is not new but only the bug fixes issues.
Microsoft releases another Windows 10 ‘Redstone 4’ test build with ‘reliability’ fixes
Microsoft also confirmed in earlier reports that the build 17133 “progressed”, they discovered “some reliability issues” and have to fix them. These issues could have potentially led to more BSODs on PCs. Here’s the complete statement released by Microsoft around today’s Windows 10 Redstone 4 17134 release.
This build has no new features and includes the fixes from KB4100375 as well as some fixes for general reliability of the OS. As Build 17133 progressed through the rings, we discovered some reliability issues we wanted to fix. In certain cases, these reliability issues could have led to a higher percentage of (BSOD) on PCs for example. Instead of creating a Cumulative Update package to service these issues, we decided to create a new build with the fixes included. This just reinforces that Windows Insiders are critical to helping us find and fix issues before releasing feature updates to all our customers so thank you!
It is just another week for Microsoft to release and us to wait for today’s build to test. If everything goes as expected Windows 10 17134 builds will be RTM build for Windows 10 version 1803.
