Don't expect a new Windows Insider build release this week

Things were looking up for a possible Windows 10 Insider release this week, but it seems Insiders will want to set their sights on next week instead. Windows Insider chief Dona Sarkar revealed on Twitter that the current build candidate needs a little more time in the oven before it rolls out to Insiders.

This occasionally happens with new builds, but Insiders are understandably eager to see what's next, particularly since it's been two weeks since hte rollout of hte last Fast ring build, build 17046. On the bright side, a bug that reared its head this week, seemingly kicking Insiders off of the Skip Ahead ring, has been remedied, according to Sarkar.

In any case, it looks like you can relax for the weekend if you were hoping to see a new build hit the Fast ring today.

  • Current build has so many glitches for me, can't wait for next one.
  • Kinda stopped paying as much attention since they sent the phones out to pasture
  • I literally don't expect much from MS any longer. After being burned 3 times as a mobile user, I have a different view of the company going forward. One piece of the ecosystem is gone, or will be, I don't see MS being that much more desirable than IOS or Android. The excitement and anticipation are gone, at least for me.
  • Any delays are just a reprieve for me meaning they are welcomed, now we don't have to spend time diagnosing issues that arise after an update - we're not talking Insider here either. I don't expect much from MSFT anymore either due to my experiences with Phone/PC.
  • Hopefully includes the Cortana redesign so we can use the cards again.
  • Still getting the same message as before in my case, guess I'm not in the "skip ahead" section anymore as it seems to be "full"
  • There is no "skip ahead"
  • Translation: Our **** sucks.
    The last three builds have been duds. The last mostly stable build was 17025. I'm currently stuck on 17035 with no way to update to 17040 or 17045 with broken apps.
  • What were you expecting? This is pre-release software, and it's only the first what, 2 months of a new branch. Of course it's gonna be buggy.
  • Being an insider doesn't entitle anyone to a new build every week - they will come when they're ready. No good complaining about it
  • I don't expect anything from Microsoft.
  • Süreli güncelleme uyarısı geliyor, ertele yapıyorum.
  • Belki de Noel için sadece kapalıdır.
  • Or, if you're a mobile user, don't expect an insider build ever again.
  • Once I switch to Android I'll forget that Microsh*t even exist. None of their apps will be part of my new device.
  • It is a bad decision, if you have a PC with Windows 10.
  • very bad experience in edge in last update it just keep on freezing and freezing.....nothing works....
  • Found a small typo in this line: "next, particularly since it's been two weeks since hte rollout of hte last Fast ring build, build 17046." Please fix that mistake :-) 
  • Since the OneDrive is as usable as 8.1, there doesn't seem to be any point in being in the insider rings. The grainy design updates look awefull.
  • “particularly since it's been two weeks since hte rollout of hte last Fast ring build” Proofread much?
