Here are the changes that come with KB3176929, Windows 10 build 14393.10

Last night, a new cumulative update to Windows 10 build 14393 was released to Windows Insiders, dubbed KB3176929, or build 14393.10, but without a list of changes included. Now, however, that list has finally been posted, here it is:

This update includes quality improvements. No new operating system features are being introduced in this update. Key changes include: •Improved reliability of background tasks and extensions for Microsoft Edge.
•Addressed licensing issue that prevents apps from activating.
•Addressed issue that prevents changing display orientation after attaching a keyboard dock.
•Addressed issue with scheduled update scans that are delayed during Connected Standby.
•Addressed issue that sometimes prevent Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML) apps from receiving keyboard input.
•Addressed issue with event logging that creates very large virtual allocations.
•Addressed issues that cause high battery drain when a Windows 10 Mobile device is idle or the screen is off.
•Addressed additional issues with Cortana, Microsoft Query and Microsoft Excel compatibility, and the Korean Input Method Editor (IME).

What’s interesting about this list is that 14393.10 went out only for PC (and only for Windows Insiders, at first for Fast Ring Insiders only, and then expanded for Slow and Release Preview Rings), but still includes a significant fix for Windows 10 Mobile: “Addressed issues that cause high battery drain when a Windows 10 Mobile device is idle or the screen is off.” While this doesn’t initially appear to make much sense, we’re hoping to see 14393.10 come to Windows 10 Mobile soon.
