That clock has started ticking as Build 18362.30 is now rolling out to everyone who is already a member of the Release Preview ring, or who wish to sign up today.
Today's release for 18362.30 is the same as Slow and Fast Rings and should be considered a near-final release. Microsoft will be pushing out patches to this version in the coming weeks if problems or bugs are discovered before the May 2019 goes live for the public later in May.
As we reported last week about the longer Release Preview testing phase:
This time, instead of skipping this testing phase, Microsoft is doubling the amount of time Microsoft tests a new feature update in the Release Preview ring. In the past, a new release would spend around two weeks in the Release Preview ring, but with 19H1, Microsoft will test it for more than a month before it deems it ready for public rollout.
Also announced last week are changes to how Microsoft pushes out feature updates to Windows 10 including no longer auto-installing those updates. Instead, users will need to opt-in to download and install.
Joining the Windows Insider Release Preview program is very simple and only takes a few minutes. Our how-to guide explains the process although instead of Fast or Slow rings users will choose Release Preview (referred to as "Just fixes, apps, and drivers"). Alternatively, Microsoft has its own guide written too, which helps explain the process. Build 18362.30 is stable enough for your main PC and should not have any major issues.
