After a bit of trolling between the two heads of Windows 10 announcements on Twitter, Joe Belfiore and Gabe Aul, Windows Insiders are being treated to a new Insider build. Windows Insider builds 10130 for PCS dropped untraditionally late on a Friday, but that shouldn’t stop Insiders from quickly snatching up the latest build.

What might stop some, are some known issues. Along with the new build comes some known issues. The Windows Team has highlighted them as followed:
- Mail app may crash due to a memory error, and may not synch mail when in the background. We plan to service this issue with an update via Windows Update.
- In some cases, flyouts from the Taskbar (including Start, Cortana, Network, Battery, and Action Center) fail to fly out. This is a transient issue, and after retrying a few times it will succeed. We are also working to service this issue with an update.
- Wi-Fi connectivity may fail at times due to a known issue. A system reboot is required to recover from this state.
For those who have been following the progress of Windows Insider builds might note, the list of known issues has been steadily shrinking. If development continues along this trend, Microsoft might just hit its late summer target date.
The Windows team is also announcing that build 10122 will not make its way to the Slow Ring due to a bug that impacts the upgrade path from Windows 7 and 8.1. Since the Slow Ring was designed for casual users new to the Windows Insider Program, the Windows team would like to avoid sending out buggy upgrades to them. The Windows team does mention that if the Build 10130 is good enough on the Fast Ring, Slow Ring user might be able to jump Build 10122 and go straight to 10130 as well as use ISOs to install.
