Microsoft recently rolled out Build 22000.1757 to Insiders in the Release Preview Channel. The update doesn't include any new features, but it has quite a lengthy list of improvements. The Release Preview Channel is the most stable channel for Insider builds, so it's normal to see updates that focus largely on improvements.
