Insiders will receive Redstone 3 builds more frequently from now on

Microsoft just released the new build 16273 for Windows 10 Preview. Along with the new build, the company also promised Insiders will be receiving new builds faster and more frequently. Both Slow and Fast Rings.

This is not surprising at all, since the Fall Creators Update is near its public release. And it’s been a practice at Microsoft to release builds at a faster pace when a major update is near its official release. Of course, new builds won’t bring any major new features, as the development team, as well as Insiders, are focused on stabilizing the system.

Here’s what Windows 10 Insider Program head, Dona Sarkar says about the future RS3 builds:

“We are now at the point of the development cycle for the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update where our focus is now on stabilization for release to the world. This means that we intend to release these builds to Insiders more quickly to both the Fast and Slow rings as these builds we include mostly bug fixes.”

Don’t be confused, the new principle only applies to Redstone 3 Insiders, as they’re getting builds from the RS3_RELEASE branch. If you’re on Skip Ahead, you’ll keep receiving builds from the RS_PRERELEASE branch at a regular pace, since Redstone 4 is still far from its official release. 

We know this can be a little confusing since there are 3 branches now. A ‘regular’ branch for Redstone 3 builds, Skip Ahead, and Windows 10 S Insider Program. So, make sure you’re in the right branch.
