The next big update for Windows 10, Redstone, is considerably in the works. Microsoft already presented its very first Windows 10 Redstone build last month, and sources claim that the company prepares even more releases soon.

Windows 10 Preview Build 11082 is currently the latest build release for Windows 10 Insider program, and it is labelled as the very first Redstone build for Windows 10. But Microsoft is already working on Redstone preview builds 10.0.11094.1000 and 10.0.11095.1000.

Still no Info About New Features in Windows 10 Redstone Builds

Since Microsoft is only testing these builds closed doors for now, we don’t have any info about when exactly will they arrive, and if they’ll bring any bigger improvements or new features. Just as a reminder, previous 11082 preview build was only called a Redstone build, but it didn’t include any noticeable changes. So, maybe we’ll have more luck with the upcoming releases.

“Right now, the team is focused on product improvements based on the feedback we’re hearing on the November update to Windows 10. This includes the changes that have also been going out as cumulative updates through Windows Update on your PCs running the Windows 10 November Update as well as on phones running Windows 10 too.”

Redstone is the codename of Windows 10’s second major update, and even though there’s no official word about the actual release of the update, many people believe that it will be released in summer 2016.

We also don’t know a lot about new features and improvements in Redstone update, but one of the features we expect to see in the future is third-party extensions support for Windows 10’s default browser, Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft started to work on the new update right after the release of Threshold 2, the first ever major update for Windows 10. The release of Threshold 2 didn’t go as smooth as planned, as the update brought a lot of issues to users, and that’s probably the reason why Microsoft decided to start working on the new build that early, so the company will have time to eliminate all flaws, and bring as stable final product, as possible.

Insiders are also playing a big role in the development of Windows 10 Redstone update, because Microsoft will make changes and improvements, mainly based on users’ feedback.

The next Redstone update should arrive in the coming weeks, so if you’re part of Windows 10 Insider program, keep your eye on updates.
