microsoft, windows defender, windows 10, anniversary update

Microsoft has just released a fresh Windows 10 build for PCs, which — along the lines of the previous release — doesn’t come with much changes. The most stressed change of all, from Microsoft is bringing “structural improvements to OneCore”.

Microsoft’s build releaser Gabe Aul says, that the code refactoring and other engineering the company has been doing to optimize OneCore is “nearing the point” where Microsoft will be ready for teams to begin checking in new features and improvements, though it will still be a few builds before any really noticeable changes show up.

And again, Gabe stresses on a changed cycle of release of these new builds. He adds,

The criteria we use to release builds to Windows Insiders in the Fast ring will be much closer to our criteria for flighting to our internal rings. This will allow more builds to reach Windows Insider. This also means that the builds we release to the Fast ring may include more bugs and other issues that could be slightly more painful for some people to live with.

So, if you’d rather stick with less frequent but more stable builds, you can switch to the Slow ring by going to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced options and under “Get Insider Preview builds” moving the slider to the Slow ring.

Another small improvement on one of the known issues of the previous build — the progress bar glitch — has been resolved. The progress dialog when copying or deleting files via File Explorer now shows up as expected.

As for this build, you can have a look at the known issues here.
