Following up on a new Windows 10 Redstone 4 preview build headed out to Fast and Skip Ahead Insiders today, Microsoft has started pushing a new cumulative update to its other Insiders as well. Windows 10 preview build 16299.19 is now rolling out to Slow and Release Preview ring Insiders who are currently on the Fall Creators Update build 16299.15.
As Microsoft explains, this release doesn't contain any new features, but it does pack some general quality improvements. Here's a look:
- Addressed issue where, after removing apps, they're reinstalled on every restart, logoff, and login.
- Addressed issue where localization of the error output from a JET database is broken. Only English error strings are reported.
- Security updates to Windows kernel-mode drivers, Microsoft Graphics Component, Internet Explorer, Windows kernel, Microsoft Windows Search Component, Windows TPM, Windows NTLM, Device Guard, Microsoft Scripting Engine, Windows Wireless Networking, Microsoft Windows DNS, Windows Server, Microsoft JET Database Engine, and the Windows SMB Server.
This quality update comes just as Microsoft is getting ready to ship the final Fall Creators Update release to the public on October 17. If you're on the Slow or Release Preview rings, you should be able to grab build 16299.19 from Windows Update now.
