Leaked Windows 10 build 10537 release notes show Microsoft's slow progress

Wzor has come up with the goods once again. After leaked screenshots of Windows 10 build 10537 earlier today, we've been treated to a follow-up of release notes and ISOs. This build has not been officially released by Microsoft so you won’t be able to download it through Windows Update, but we're sure that you'll be able to track down a copy if you're particularly keen to try it out.

We've already mentioned some of the changes that are to be found in this latest build (MICROSOFT.WINDOWS.10.CLIENTPRO-CORE.TH2.10537.X64.OEMRET.ENGLISH.DVD) but the official release notes go into more detail. Dating back to 2 September, the release notes detail not only the new features and changes, but also the bug fixes. But, perhaps more importantly, it shows that progress has slowed over at Microsoft.

Windows Insiders have insatiable appetites for new builds of Windows 10, and Microsoft has been slow to deliver the goods recently. With a build number jump of just five from the last official release, it would perhaps be foolish to expect anything major to be included in build 10537 -- although stranger things have happened -- but the list of changes is notably short. In fact, just three new features are mentioned:

  • Faster Start menu navigation using group header letters.
  • New color options for the taskbar, titlebars, Start menu, and Action Center.
  • A tweaked context menu for the Start menu.

In terms of bug fixes, just nine are listed and this particular build also introduces a number of new problems and issues. It is no longer possible to load EdgeHTML from Internet Explorer 11, and a problem with facial recognition sensors means that Windows Hello does not work properly. The lock screen may exhibit issues, and there are also a range of problems with the Narrator feature.
