Microsoft releases Windows 10 Fall Creators Update Build 16296 to the Fast ring
Earlier today, Windows Insider chief Dona Sarkar tweeted that things are going to get very busy over the next few days as Microsoft pulls out all the stops to get the Fall Creators Update ready for release in the coming weeks.
True to her word, she announced Build 16291 for Insiders in the Slow ring, followed by two new builds shortly afterwards -- Build 15252 for Mobile, and Build 16296 for PC users on the Fast ring. Skip Ahead users will have to wait until next week for their next build.
As you would expect, there’s nothing too thrilling about Fast ring build 16296 -- as Sarkar says in the accompanying documentation:
As we mentioned previously, we are now at the point of the development cycle for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update where our focus is now on stabilization for release to the world. This means that we are releasing new builds to Insiders more quickly and that these builds will include mostly bug fixes. You’ll notice that this build continues to include a bunch of good bug fixes Insiders will enjoy.
General changes, improvements, and fixes in this build include:
- Fixed an issue where Hyper-V couldn’t create a VM on 3rd party network storage.
- Fixed an issue where for the first few minutes after clean installing a non-English build many inbox app names might unexpectedly appear with English app names.
- Fixed an issue where gaming apps using WebView with heavy use of HTML canvas might have unexpectedly had very low FPS in recent flights.
Expect new builds to come thick and fast over the coming weeks, with the Fall Creators Update set to roll out on October 17.
