This new tool helps Windows Insiders track build flights all in one place
When you have multiple devices enrolled in the various rings of the Windows Insider program, keeping track of all the builds flighted by Microsoft can sometimes be tricky. Well, Senior Program Manager on the Windows Insider Program, Brandon Leblanc, has created a little tool from scratch to help Insiders sort things out. He learned coding to make the tool, and the results of his labor are pretty nifty.

This tool is actually a website, which Leblanc is appropriately calling “Flight Hub.” The goal of the website is to give Insiders one central dashboard for all things related to previewing builds. For now, it’s just in a preview state and lists the latest Insider Preview releases for PC, Server, IoT, and SDKs and ISO images. There are also dates for when builds were released, and links to the appropriate blog posts.
Brandon has said that the preview of Flight Hub is just the start, and will be expanding into apps (maybe even a UWP app?) soon. There’s also plans to integrate it into the Windows Insider website and the Windows 10 Feedback Hub, and even bring the list back all the way to the beginning of the Windows Insider Program. This is a really good initiative, and we’re looking forward to see how this project evolves over the coming months.Further reading: Brandon LeBlanc, Flight Hub, Microsoft, Redstone 4, RS4, Windows 10, Windows Insider
