If you’re a developer or business-based Windows Insider, you’re up for some big treats all across the board. Microsoft has just pushed out new releases for various branches of the Insider program, and even a new SDK. Heading to Windows Insiders running Windows Server 2019 is build 17744, to developers SDK Preview build 17744, and to consumers, the ISO files for build 17738.

First off, there is the matter of the new ISO for build 17738. Microsoft originally promised these ISO files last week, and the company has now delivered. You can find the ISO files from the Advanced Preview section of the Windows Insider website. Keep in mind that build 17738 dropped on August 14, and doesn’t really come with any new features to note of. There are some bug fixes and known issues though, and you can read up on those here.

Next up, is Windows Server 2019 Insider Preview build 17744. Microsoft documents all the new technical features right here but takes note of several known issues and with transitioning systems running Server Code, and the incorrect format with the Italian language in the EULA. You can download this build from the Windows Server Insider Preview download page, or sign up here to get started.

Finally, there is Windows 10 SDK Preview Build 17744. As usual, this release doesn’t bring many new features and rather contains bug fixes. You can dive deeper into the changes over on the Windows Blog, but as usual, the SDK will only install on Windows 10 Insider Preview builds and with Visual Studio 2017 and greater. You can download from the developer section on Windows Insider website.
We have yet to hear teases about a new Fast Ring or Skip Ahead build this week, but we will be keeping our hopes up. September is right around the corner and development of Redstone 5 is likely almost over now, so a bug fixing build will likely be coming later this week.Further reading: build 17738, build 17744, Microsoft, SDK, Windows 10, Windows 10 SDK, Windows Insider, Windows Server 2019
