If you’re one of the many still on Windows 10, but have remained a Windows Insider, there’s a new Release Preview Channel build for you, upping the build number to 19044.1947. This Windows 10 21H2 build is a “non-security update” and includes quality improvements, including two new changes:

New! We gave IT admins the ability to remotely add languages and language-related features. Additionally, they can now manage language scenarios across several endpoint managers.
New! We enhanced Microsoft Defender for Endpoint’s ability to identify and intercept ransomware and advanced attacks.

Along with these new changes, there’s a long list of fixes, including fixing an issue causing subscription activation failure under certain conditions, an issue causing some game installations to fail due to a licensing issue, an issue degrading BitLocker performance, an issue affecting jump list icon colors, and “an issue that prevents devices from receiving an offer from Windows Update for the same extension driver when that extension driver is already installed without the base driver.”
