- Microsoft has temporarily stopped releasing Windows 10 Insider builds in the Dev channel.
- The company will focus on testing the servicing system, with multiple cumulative updates.
- This decision is a result of the upcoming presentation of the new generation of Windows, on the 24th of July.
- It seems more likely that Insiders will instead receive builds for Windows 11 in the near future.
Everyone is now amped about the future of the Windows operating system and users keep making predictions about how the new version will look and perform.
So, as many expected, Microsoft has temporarily stopped releasing Windows 10 Insider builds in the Dev channel.
Pause on the Dev channel Insider builds until Windows 11
The tech giant will instead focus on testing the servicing system, which means that, in the following weeks, Windows Insiders will receive quite a few small cumulative updates for Build 21390.
As we mentioned above, the reason for this decision is a result of the upcoming presentation of the new generation of Windows, which will happen on the 24th of June.
So it’s pretty understandable that, until that moment, Microsoft wants to keep the appearance, as well as the new features of the Sun Valley project a secret, as much as possible.
We have been testing our servicing pipeline with Cumulative Updates to the builds released to the Dev Channel. Each week, we would release a new build and then follow up with a Cumulative Update on top of that build before moving to the next build. However, we need to test the process of releasing multiple Cumulative Updates on top of each other on top of the same build. As a result of this, over the course of the next several weeks, our focus will be on releasing multiple Cumulative Updates on top of Build 21390. Having Insiders in the Dev Channel test will be immensely helpful, and we’ll be back to flighting normally again soon!
Insiders could be testing Windows 11 builds pretty soon
It is very possible that, after the major 24th June presentation, that Insiders will receive a new pre-release build of the so-called Windows 11.
Keep in mind that this name has already been used by some insiders in this exact format, so it’s becoming more and more likely that the new version of the OS will be indeed called WIndows 11.
We’ll just have to wait and see what the future holds for all of us Windows users. The silver lining here is that we won’t actually wait very long, as the presentation is right around the corner.
