Home » Redstone 3 is almost ready, recent Windows 10 build removes watermark

Microsoft released the new build 15042 for Windows 10 Preview on Friday. At first look, there’s nothing unusual about this build as it brings just a few minor features and a bunch of system improvements and bug fixes. However, there’s something about build 15042 that could be even more important than its new additions: the watermark that doesn’t show up in the bottom-right corner of the screen anymore. Additionally, the expiration date of the build is also gone from ‘About Windows’.

This is another indication that we’re close to the public release of the Creators Update. As a reminder, Windows 10 Preview builds are now in the release branch, which means there won’t be any major new features in the future builds. Instead, Microsoft will focus on bug fixes and system improvements.

Even though the watermark and expiration dates are gone now, this build certainly isn’t RTM. It’s still way too early for Microsoft to lock in and there are too many bugs that still need to be addressed. Also, as history has shown us before, Microsoft usually releases the RTM build just a week or so before the public release, so we should expect RTM to be released in late March or early April.

Until then, Insiders should focus on current builds and provide needed feedback to Microsoft in order for the company to release as stable a major update as possible. And, judging by previous releases, it’s going to be a hard feat to accomplish.
