No new build today, but Microsoft kicks off the only Bug Bash for the Redstone 4 release

Dona Sarkar has just announced that there won’t be any new Windows 10 Insider build today (February 2nd) due to a rollback situation. However, there is still plenty of Windows Insider action on the road ahead: Indeed, the first and only Redstone 4 Bug Bash is kicking off today and will go on through 11:59 PM PST on Sunday, February 11th.

Since there are no new builds this week, the latest Windows Insider release –build 17083– is the focus of this Bug Bash. As always, this is your chance to complete quests, explore the new features in Redstone 4, and also provide feedback to Microsoft to help shape the final release. There are seven focus areas in this Bug Bash: Input, IoT, Personalization, Privacy, Security, Store, and Windows Community, but more content and quests will be added as the bash progresses.

If you’re a new Windows Insider, it’s best to check out this overview to learn more about how Bug Bashes work. Longtime and returning Insiders should also keep the following in mind if they’re looking to receive a Feedback Hub achievement for participating in the Bug Bash:

  • Be on the latest Fast or Slow ring build
  • Log a least one piece of feedback in the Feedback Hub
  • Complete at least one Quest in the Feedback Hub

If you so happen to be free later next week, you can feel free to tune into Microsoft’s special Bug Bash webcast on Mixer on Tuesday, February 6th, at 10:00 AM PST. You’ll be able to submit your questions to the Insider team and hear from them first hand on how the Bash is going. Happy bashing, and feel free to let us know if you’ve come across any major bugs in RS4 by dropping us a comment below.
