Microsoft recently released the Threshold 2 update, which was the biggest update for the system, since its release in July this year. And now, less than two weeks after releasing the Fall Update, Microsoft already started to work on the new big update for Windows 10, Redstone.

And the company isn’t working on the update only within its cover, because it prepares to even release the first Redstone build to Windows 10 insiders before the end of 2015. The first build should be a part of ‘Redstone for Insiders,’ and even if we don’t have an exact release date, we believe that it will arrive in 2015.

Microsoft already released a cumulative update for Windows 10, which enrolls Insiders into “rs1_release” branch. And this branch, as its name says, should be the new release branch for the upcoming Redstone update. If you want to check if you’re already on this branch, and make sure that the cumulative update is installed, you can go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\WindowsSelfHost\Applicability

registry path in your Registry Editor, and check if BranchName says “rs1_release.”

If you’re not familiar with Redstone update for Windows 10, to be short, it’s going to be the next major update for Windows 10, and the biggest update for the system since current Threshold 2 update. Just like Threshold, Redstone will also be delivered in two waves, as Redstone 1 (RS1) and Redstone (RS2). It is believed that RS1 will arrive in June, and RS2 in October, but since there’s more than half a year until then, don’t take this information for one hundred percent accurate.

Of course, Redstone 2 should introduce some new features to the system, as well as some user interface changes. Releasing Redstone to testers first is a good move by Microsoft, because the company surely doesn’t want another problematic update, like it was the case with Threshold 2.
