It looks like Microsoft is calling it a wrap for new Windows 10 Insider builds in 2016. Windows Insider chief Dona Sarkar took to Twitter to announce that no new builds will be released in 2016 as the year comes to a close.
@donasarkar And this also means no more builds for 2016. We will release ISO for the Slow ring build next week.— Dona Sarkar (@donasarkar) December 15, 2016
The latest build to hit the Fast ring was 14986, which brought an absolute truckload of new features to PC earlier in December. The same build subsequently made its way to the Slow ring just yesterday, bringing new features to test to even more users. And while no new builds are coming through the rest of December, an ISO file for build 14986 will be released next week, Darkar says.
It's already been a pretty busy year for Insiders, particularly after the Creators Update was announced and new features started trickling out to preview builds. We should see things ramp up even more as we head into 2017 and Microsoft continues to test out all of the new features and tweaks coming along in the Creators Update before their full release.
