Following the Fast ring and a week after, Microsoft has also released Windows 10 build 10041 to the Slow ring that lets Windows Insiders to try out the most stable builds. At the same time, the Windows maker has also pushed three updates for the build 10041.

As expected, both 32-bit and 64-bit ISOs of the OS are also available for those, who are willing perform a clean installation of Windows 10. In fact, it’s a good news for Chinese, French, British, German, Italian and Spanish users as these ISOs enable them to use Cortana in their own languages directly instead of downloading some specific language pack first to try out the digital personal assistant in other languages than English.

The three patches (KB3050279, KB3050284 and KB3046049) released today, are recommended and aimed to resolve some stability issues in addition to FREAK vulnerability.

FYI, the build is the same build that released to the Fast ring, a week ago. There’s no code difference between the two except the rings. Hence, the updates are still required to be installed in Windows 10 build 10041.

Gabriel Aul, General Manager OSG Data and Fundamentals team, has confirmed that OneDrive will no longer be available as a standalone app with Windows 10. Windows team has been doing deeper integration of the cloud storage service into the platform as Apple does with its iCloud service into OS X and iOS. He also pointed out that OneDrive will be showed as drive in File Explorer rather than in Navigation pane.

Besides this, Microsoft has also announced Windows 10 developer tooling preview for Windows Insiders. To no surprise, the developer squad from Redmond has provided some sample code Universal apps via GitHub. Moreover, a handful series of video on Channel 9 has been published helping developers to migrate their current app for Windows 8.1 to the new platform.
