Microsoft has released its second build for Windows Insiders this week for PC and phone, bringing fast ring users up to build 14372, one up from yesterday's release. Considering this build is only one newer, and we're almost done with development of the Anniversary Update, this build includes no new features, but lots of bug fixes and other improvements.
Microsoft published the information on their Insider blog.
Here's the list of known issues for PC:
Clicking on networks or VPN connections in the network flyout on the taskbar doesn't launch the network settings page like it should.
There are a few known issues with the Evernote Web Clipper extension for Microsoft Edge. The Evernote Web Clipper might not load on certain websites and there is no thumbnail image when clipping bookmarks. There are also various visual issues.
When you enable Developer Mode in this build, you will receive an error message because the necessary package needs from Windows Update isn't being published appropriately. This will prevent you from using Device Portal. We're working to get this fixed as soon as possible. You can still F5 deploy apps from Visual Studio to your PC.
And for Mobile:
We have changed the backup format for Windows 10 Mobile devices to reduce the size of the backup stored in OneDrive. As a result, if you do a backup on a device running the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds and move back to the released version of Windows 10 Mobile (Build 10586) and restore from your backup – your Start screen layout won't restore and remain the default Start layout. Your previous backup also gets overwritten. If you need to go back to Build 10586 temporarily, once you are on Build 10586 you should disable backup so it doesn't overwrite the good backup from Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds.
We've heard you and we are investigating decreases in battery life on older devices such as the Lumia 830, 930, and 1520 (devices with SoC 8974 chipsets).
We're investigating Wi-Fi disconnect issues – if you are experiencing an issue with your Wi-Fi disconnecting, please see this forum post and make sure to upvote Wi-Fi disconnecting issues in the Feedback Hub.
Microsoft is almost done with development of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update now, so it's no surprise to see these new builds include no new features. It's great to see Microsoft working on stability and bug fixes, however, as it means we'll get a much smoother and better performing operating system all round come public rollout in July.
