Microsoft hasn't pushed out a new build for Fast ring Insiders this week, but it is shipping out a small cumulative update with some fixes in tow. Available for Insiders testing the next major Windows 10 feature update, currently named "19H1", the cumulative release puts an update block in place for a "small number of PCs" using Nuvoton TPM chips. It also fixes a small media display bug.
Here's the official look at what's new, as appended to the original build 18277 release notes:
- We're putting an update block for this build in place for a small number of PCs that use Nuvoton (NTC) TPM chips with a specific firmware version (188.8.131.52) due to a bug causing issues with Windows Hello face/biometric/pin login not working.
- We've fixed a media display bug that was causing unexpected display rendering for some users.
The cumulative update pushes the build number up to 18277.1006 and should be available via Windows Update for Fast ring Insiders now.
Build 18277 originally began rolling out to Fast ring Insiders last week, bringing with it some enhancements for Action Center, along with new emoji, improved Focus Assists, and more. For more, check out our hands-on look at build 18277.
