Microsoft has now started rolling out Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 11082 for Insiders enrolled in the fast ring. Notably, this marks the first build coming out of the Redstone development branch (RS1), though none of the features expected to be included with the Redstone update aren’t yet included in the build.
Windows Insider Chief Gabe Aul makes it rather clear in a blog post that Windows 10 Build 11082 is primarily about performance improvements and bug fixes without any noticeable changes. The Windows team has essentially focused on improvements based on the feedback it received from the recently released November update Version 1511 build 10586.
“With this build, you won’t see big noticeable changes or new features just yet. Right now, the team is focused on product improvements based on the feedback we’re hearing on the November update to Windows 10. This includes the changes that have also been going out as cumulative updates through Windows Update on your PCs running the Windows 10 November Update as well as on phones running Windows 10 too,” Aul explained.
In addition, Aul also said that Microsoft is currently focused on the improvement of OneCore, the company’s initiative to develop one kernel that can be used across all Windows 10 devices that include PCs, smartphones, and Xbox consoles.
“We’re doing some code refactoring and other engineering work to make sure OneCore is optimally structured for teams to start checking in new features and improvements in the new year,” Aul added.
Microsoft surprisingly hasn’t published the ‘known issues’ with Build 11082 on the official blog, but published via Insider Hub app for Windows 10. Nevertheless, below are the known issues with Build 11082:
- Languages packages and Features on Demand will fail to install on this build. We are investigating workarounds.
- When copying, deleting, or moving files there will be no progress dialog shown. The file action will complete without intervention. This can cause confusion when acting on large files or directories.
- With this build, application defaults for some applications will be reset. Music & Video will default to Windows Media Player. This can be reconfigured opening Cortana or
- Search and searching for “Choose default apps by file type” to open the correct settings page.
