Microsoft has just released a new build of Windows 10 for Windows Insiders to begin testing over the new year. Today’s build release is 11082, and is part of the Redstone development branch RS1 meaning this is the first (of many, hopefully) builds from Redstone that Insiders will be able to test.
11082 was compiled recently, meaning Microsoft is not far ahead of build 11082 internally. We were starting to think we wouldn’t have any new preview bits to play with before 2016, but luckily that isn’t the case. The new build is rolling out to Insiders in the fast ring now, so if you can’t see it yet give it time as the update is still propagating.
Windows 10 Redstone is Microsoft’s first major update for Windows 10 that will bring a whole bunch of new features and enhancements to the operating system. Right now, Microsoft is aiming to launch Redstone officially in July, with a second Redstone update coming in the fall of 2016, much like Threshold 2.
